From a Hallmark card I received this week
from a life-long friend:
I apologize, but I am new at the rules of writing and posting.
After posting the writing from a Hallmark card,
a writer friend advised to take down the post
without first contacting Hallmark for permission.
The Oak Tree
If you are going through trials and tests of faith lately like I have, then I hope you will find this message of encouragement a blessing as I did.
How blessed it the man who
Does not walk in the counsel of the wicked.
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And In His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
