This is beautiful. Could I make a copy of this. This needs to be in a couples manual at church, when they have couples classes.

Miss Shondra this is beautiful and I too hope you don't mind that copy and paste this over to my desktop so I can read it daily.  


I often forget how beautiful the word of God is and how perfectly it can be applied to so many aspects of our lives.  I really needed this today.


Thank you again!

I look to the psalms and the song of songs for our general guidance.



Psalm 121


King James Version (KJV)




I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.


My help cometh from the Lord, which hath made heaven and earth.


He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.


Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.


The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.


The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.


The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.


The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.


The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name' sake.


 


Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.


 


Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.





-- KJV

The Bride and the Bridegroom
9  I have compared thee, O my love,








        






to a company of horses in Pharaoh's chariots.


10  Thy cheeks are comely with rows of jewels,








        






thy neck with chains of gold.


11  We will make thee borders of gold








        






with studs of silver.


12  While the King sitteth at his table,








        






my spikenard sendeth forth the smell thereof.


13  A bundle of myrrh is my well-beloved unto me;








        






he shall lie all night betwixt my breasts.


14  My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire








        






in the vineyards of Enge'di.


15  Behold, thou art fair, my love;








        









behold, thou art fair;
thou hast doves' eyes.


16  Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant:








        






also our bed is green.


17  The beams of our house are cedar,








        






and our rafters of fir.
