Welcome To My Green Pasture....

It is a place of quiet rest that I have found when I am writing. I hope that someone will find my musings helpful in some way.
Psalm 23:2 "He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restoreth my soul."

Regard For The Weak

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
Last year I hung this cute little bird house in the bush out front. My intentions were to use it to put birdseed in but I really didn't do too great of a job at keeping up with it. Yesterday I looked out my bedroom window and noticed a little yellow canary going in and out of it, so out of curiosity I went outside to take a look. That little bird has been busy building itself a home inside. I guess I was having regard for the weak! I am not really sure that is what is meant in Psalm 41 where it talks about having regard for the weak...I think it is talking about people...but I think creatures count too. Anyway I was reminded of this as I was reading Psalm 41 this morning....I am always amazed at how I can read something I have read a million times over but glean something different each time! This was just right for me this morning. Maybe it will be just right for you too....so I decided to include it here.
Psalm 41(NIV) "Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the Lord delivers him in times of trouble. The Lord will protect him and preserve his life; he will bless him in the land and not surrender him to the desire of his foes. The Lord will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of  illness. I said, " O Lord, have mercy on me; heal me, for I have sinned against you." My enemies say of me in malice, "When will he die and his name perish?" Whenever one comes to see me, he speaks falsely, while his heart gathers slander; then he goes out and spreads it abroad. All my enemies whisper together against me; they imagine the worst for me, saying , "A vile disease has beset him; he will never get up from the place where he lies." Even my close friend, whom I trusted, he who shared my bread , has lifted up his heel against me. But you, O Lord, have mercy on me; raise me up, that I may repay them. I know that you are pleased with me, for my enemy does not triumph over me. In my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever. Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen."
