"As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds His people From this time forth and forever." (Psalm 125:2 NKJV) From the time God created living beings, He protected and supported them. A mountain is surrounded by rocks, trees, and earth that help support it and keep it standing. God is like that for us. He is our rock and foundation, and we are His branches. But, unlike a physical mountain, that can deteriorate and crumble from age and weathering storms, the spirtual "mountain" we have with God is eternal and everlasting. It will not crumble, deteriorate, and wither away...especially if we take care of it. You can always stand on this mountain and know that it sturday and strong! Love, Beau

"The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace." (Proverbs 6:25 NKJV) God shines His face upon us, protecting us, guiding us, answering our prayers, meeting all our needs, consoling and comforting us, celebrating with us, and preparing us for eternity. Despite all our faults and shortcomings, God always looks at us favorably. That means, according to Thesaurus.com, He looks at us approvingly, enthusiasticly, fairly, generously, graciously, heartily, helpfully, positively, and with approval and without prejudice. It was a deep spiritual blessing to be given a blessing of peace, and many instances of blessings can be found in The Holy Bible. God REALLY likes and loves us. And, knowing that "His countenance" always shines on you, should give us all a deep sense of peace! "...may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all." (2 Thessalonians 3:16 NKJV) Love, Beau
