The Front Porch

OK, so I need a happy medium as far as comments are concerned. While I love the fact that this blog does not have comments and remains a bit of a sacred and quiet space, I did miss the sense of community. So being inspired by Nancy's Parlor blog, I have created The Front Porch.
This is a place for readers of this blog to visit if they so choose, not just me, but each other. So please pay a visit and rest awhile on the porch with whomever else may be visiting. I am looking forward to visiting with you and enjoying some good conversation.
Thank you to all of you for putting up with my restless blogging spirit.

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
