Pictures and Promises

I had such wonderful times in the word before Alaina was born! I thought I would share some of the wonderful verses that the Lord gave me, along with a few more pictures. ;-)

The Lord delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love. - Psalm 147:11

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee, because his trusts in Thee.  Trust ye in the Lord forever, for in Jehovah is everlasting strength. - Isaiah 26:3-4

Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about what happens to you. - 1 Peter 5:7

There is no one like the God of Israel, He rides across the heavens to help you, across the skies in majestic splendor. The Eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. - Deuteronomy 33:26-27

Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you. Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. - Isaiah 41:10

The Lord is righteous in everything He does; He is filled with kindness. The Lord is close to all who call upon Him . . . He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him; He hears their cries for help and rescues them. The Lord protects all those who love Him. - Psalm 145:17-20a
