Beautiful pic and wise verse, MaryLu, thank you!! Things aren't always as beautiful and peaceful as it appears - this pic for instance - we, truly, must be shrewd and attuned to Him, as the scripture states. Love, prayers, and hugs!!

Thank you, Bonnie, for always commenting on my posts. I look forward to hearing from you. :-)
Hi, MaryLuConfession: I saw this on an email post, which led me to this picture with bible verse. As I started to read this verse: "Behold, I send you out.......". I stopped there, and almost flipped past it, thinking I knew what I was reading; "And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you....." Luke24:49. I was not even sure of the exact wording of the verse, nor of which verse I was thinking of. I even had to do a Google search to find which verse I presumed your verse actually was! Then, out of the corner of my eye, I see "sheep", wolves", "serpents". What?? So... Maybe I need to read that again. So, I did. And when I did, the verse really reached a place in my heart and soul; and a place in my life. Thank you, MaryLu.And in addition, the picture was stunning, also touching my heart. In the past, I have used the ship imagery to represent my soul. But that's another story.And maybe, besides Matt10:16, I need to spend some time on Luke24:49.Blessings,Patricia
The Bible often uses images of the sea and ships to represent things. I love that about God. Another verse that comes to mind is that Hope is the anchor of our soul. :-) I"m so glad the picture and partial verse prompted you to look it up. In this day and age, it's a great reminder that we are still on enemy territory, that we must be clever and careful, yet be great representatives of God's love. Blessings back!
