The beautiful terraced gardens and vineyards on the hillside in Cinque Terre, Italy, give me deeper insight this morning as I read His Words -
"Even though the fig trees have no blossoms;
and there are no grapes on the vines;
even though the olive crop fails,
and the fields lie empty and barren;
even though the flocks die in the fields
and the cattle barns are empty ... "
" ... yet I will rejoice in the Lord!
I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!
The sovereign Lord is my strength!
He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
able to tread upon the heights."
Thank You, Lord, for these words (taken from Habakkuk 3:17-19), and these photos taken on our recent trip to Italy - reminding me that joy, hope, and peace can be ours everyday, no matter what circumstances we face. Just what I needed this morning, rescuing me from worry, and giving me hope and joy.
