"I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches." Psalm 119:14

"O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!" Romans 11:33

"The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb." Psalm 19:9,10

A tale of two pirates was heard
such treasure they found left them stirred
for among trinkets gold
their stunned eyes did behold
rare copy of God’s Holy Word.

I just love the juxtaposition of the 'trinkets gold' with the 'Holy Word,' the former being so relatively worthless. (OK. I know. I'm a hopeless idealist... My wife wishes that I would opt for a few more trinkets... ) Nicely done, Carol. Best wishes, Gershon

Thanks, Gershon. Those trinkets of gold will pass away someday. I’m glad my hope is in something that won’t. I appreciate your visit and comments. :-)
