Mountains in Scripture

 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 

 Isaiah 55:12

Hear ye now what the Lord saith; Arise, contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice.

Micah 6:1

Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth.

 Luke 3:5

How lovely on the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who announces peace And brings good news of happiness, Who announces salvation, And says to Zion, 
"Your God reigns!"

Isaiah 52:7

We've had a beautiful day here today. 
I send you wishes for a wonderful weekend.

Your photos are lovely and your verses are such great matches! Most of the verses are songs that I have sung.

Shanda said...

Love your photos and scriptures. We live at the base of a mountain and it is so beautiful, especially when it is snow capped!

Linda said...

Oh, Penny! You're making me homesick!!!!!

(Spectacular photos, though.)


Margaret said...

Mountains are my favorite. (I was raised in the Sierra Nevadas.) Is that snow I see?

Joyful said...

Thank you everyone for your marvellous comments. I'm so glad you enjoyed the mountain photos and the scriptures. I simply love God's creation ;-)

Inside to wish you a good first Sunday in Advent with these words:

Life's four candles.
Slow burn the 4 light. Everything is so quiet that you can hear them talk to us.
The first candle said, "I am peace. People do not fit me, so I turn off soon"
Its flame was quickly reduced and the light died out.
... The second light said: "I am faithful. For the most part I am just a word that few know about. Therefore I have no desire to continue to burn"
While the light spoke, there came a v. .. in. ... breath and blew out the candle.
Then it was the third light's trip: "I am Love. I no longer have the strength to continue to burn. Men neglecting me. They have forgotten that they must love and honor each other" and the light did not wait long, but died out .
Then, with the one that came a little kid and saw the 3 extinguished the light. The child looked at them and said:
Why do they burn no more "?
When the lights had told the child the reason, the child began to cry.
Then answered the fourth light:
Do not be afraid. I am passionate yet and with me you can re-light the other candles, because I am "Hope"
With sparkling eyes took the baby 'Hope light "and with that she turned the other 3 lights.
Never let the flame of hope vanish in your life, and let every one of us appreciate, Hope - Fidelity - Peace - and love.
Make sure these lights never ♥ ♥ ♥
Hugs Hanne Bente ♥

I love the mountains. Summer, Winter, Fall, Spring, all bring their special look and feeling to my spirit. I remember too that Jesus died on a mountain called Calvary. Jesus lived in and loved the people of the mountains and so do I.

Kay L. Davies said...

Oh, I do love photos of "our" mountains, Penny. It was great to see them today, if only briefly in between lunch and coffee break! (They were covered in fog when I was on my way into the city.)
I'm so pleased you were able to meet me for coffee, and the success of the meeting is surely in the length of time we spent in the coffee house!
Re this post: I like the first quotation about the mountains and the fields. We sing this at church and it's always fun at the "clap their hands" part.
Take good care of yourself, my friend, until we meet again.

Joyful said...

G.N. Shaw, I finally was able to read your blog! I enjoyed reading about your holiday. I will see you again.

Joyful said...

Fred, I so agree with you. Mountains are a special place.

Joyful said...

Kay, it was a delight to meet you! I'm thrilled that you took time out of your schedule to stop and meet with me. I'm sorry the coffee shop was so loud but we managed to cram in some conversation, anyway ;-)

Have a wonderful train trip. I hope we meet again. Until then take care. p.s. I'll send photos via mail.
