A gathering by the river…

Last week I enjoyed turning one year older and I celebrated by relaxing in one of my favourite spots…

…down by the river…

…with some of my favourite people…

Psalm 126 – A Harvest of Joy

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.
Then our mouths were filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy;
then it was said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.”

The Lord has done great things for us, and we rejoiced.

Restore our fortunes, O Lord, like the watercourses in Negeb.
May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy.
Those who go out weeping,
bearing seed for sowing,
shall come home with shouts of joy,
carrying their sheaves.
