Some scripture for the day
This is called an "angel face" rose. I like that name.
Today I am just going to publish a montage of Bible verses that comfort me when I get all worried about the state of the world.
The way of the Lord is a refuge for the righteous,
but it is the ruin of those who do evil.
Come and see what the Lord has done, how awesome His works in man's behalf!
He rules forever by His power, His eyes watch the nations--let not the rebellious rise up against Him.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for His inheritance. From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind; from His dwelling place He watches all who live on earth-- He who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.
No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength. A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear Him, on those whose hope is in His unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name.
May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You.
