Celebrating Six Decades in the Land of the Living

I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.
The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came upon me;
I was overcome by trouble and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the LORD: “O LORD, save me!”

The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.
The LORD protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me.

Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you.
For you, O LORD, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

How can I repay the LORD for all his goodness to me?
I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD.
I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people.
Psalm 116: 1-9, 12-14* 

This is my testimony. This is my heart.

  1. Nancy,

    I love the beautiful bouquet of pansies on your blog of sixty years in the land of the living.
    They remind me of some pansies poking through snow I saw while walking with my friend a few years ago.
    The pansies had survived the winter and were welcoming a new season – in all their glory.
    Reminds of someone else I know.
    Happy Birthday!

    • Isn’t that an exquisite bouquet? Pansies are my long-time favorite. Thank you for the beautiful birthday wishes, especially in relation to the pansies you saw poking up through the snow. A new year begun and new decade to unfold ‘in the land of the living.’ I am blessed. And you are one of my blessings from the Lord, Donna. Thank you, friend.

  2. The world is a better place with you in it!
