Is not her King in her?

More from Jeremiah...

A prophets mourning for the people~

"I would comfort myself in sorrow,
My heart is faint in me.
Listen! The voice,
The cry of the daughter of my people
From a far country,
"Is not the LORD in Zion?
Is not her King in her?" Jeremiah 8:18,19

My heart cries out...

"Is not her KING in her?"

I understand the treachery. I understand deceit. The pride of man running after the dictates of his own heart. I want truth, I want righteousness.  A heart flowing and flowing with love .
So in love, so devoted, so faithful to one...this prince of my heart.

That I do everything and anything for. That I give all to...holding nothing back. Complete devotion and faithfulness.
That the King would be in me as: "The King is in her."

Loyal Love

"Don't let the wise brag of their wisdom.
Don't let heroes brag of their exploits.
Don't let the rich brag of their riches.
If you brag, brag of this and this only:

That you understand and know me.
I'm God, and I act in loyal love.
I do what's right and set things right and fair,
and delight in those who do the same things."
Jeremiah 9:23-24

I am nourished by these cold, quiet, gentle days of winter. Sitting at the window, gazing into the fog, watching birds search for food in the frost, listening, sipping hot tea, reading the Word, tucking children and pup into cozy blankets, stillness, bundling up in sock hat,scarf, and fur lined boots. I like the cold, the quiet, the stillness, the barrenness, the slowness, the softness winter gives...and it's beauty satisfying.

~Thank you all for your suggestions on my adirondecks. They helped me very much and I've decided to keep them as they are, in their rustic driftwood look.
