You have kept count of my tossings;
put my tears in your bottle.
Are they not in your book?

Alice: Honor

Devout men buried Stephen and made great lamentation over him.
Acts 8:2

Pay to all what is owed to them:
taxes to whom taxes are owed,
revenue to whom revenue is owed,
respect to whom respect is owed,
honor to whom honor is owed.

Owe no one anything, except to love each other,
for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
Romans 13:7-8

Alice in the Palace

My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
Psalm 139:15-16

Consider… the happy condition of a Christian! He has his best things last, and therefore in this world he receives his worst things first. But even his worst things are “later” good things, hard plowings yielding joyful harvests. – Spurgeon, ed. by Alistair Begg

Alice: Walking Through the Valley

For he delivers the needy when he calls,
the poor and him who has no helper.
He has pity on the weak and the needy,
and saves the lives of the needy.
From oppression and violence he redeems their life,
and precious is their blood in his sight.
Psalm 72:12-14

Alice: Dishonor

“I didn’t think I could love her more,
but now that her eyes are crossing and she can barely move…
I love her more.” – Michele

We rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings,
knowing that suffering produces endurance,
and endurance produces character,
and character produces hope,
and hope does not put us to shame… Romans 5:2b-5a

Alice: Flickering

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, ter you are with me!
Your rod, and your staff, they come ter me,
You prepared a table before me in the presence of my Emily’s
You anoint my head with oil,
My cup (sipping sound) runs over.
Psalm 23:4-5, Alice’s version Continue reading “Alice: Flickering”

I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD

Wait for the LORD;

wait for the LORD!

As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.
For he knows our frame;
he remembers that we are dust.
