Bow Not to Defeat


Bow not to defeat,

but to King;

open mouth not to scream,

but to sing.

Bend only to pray,

not give in;

incline heart both without

and within.

      πŸ™‚ Thanks for still visiting when I’ve been so busy and absent from cyberspace! Life is a bit hectic right now, so I haven’t been able to take the time to reply and visit as much as I would like…

        I think this is a problem we all have at some time or other. We, bloggers, do the best we can.

        True. I find blogging and reading so relaxing, I really miss it when I haven’t the time to do it. But there are other pressing things sometimes, and all must be done in balance somehow.

    I so loved this one! Need to put it on my forehead as a sticky note. Or . . just ask God to write in on my heart. πŸ™‚

    Oh, I love this one so much, Melody!! I’ll go with Sticky Note–stapling sounds like another headache just waiting to happen!

    Such a perfect verse for winter, Melody! Love the photo too. πŸ™‚

  5. Melody, David could not have said this any better in a Psalm! And besides, he could not take such beautiful snow pictures… πŸ˜‰

    Blessings ~ Wendy

      *snicker* Not a lot on snow in Biblical accounts – I have enough experience with it to fill in some middle eastern gaps? πŸ™‚ Thanks for the high praise, Wendy!
