I couldn't get a picture uploaded for this blog! I watch through my study window outside and see my dog try frantically to topple the food I put for the pigeons on to of his dog house! I got on my knees to pray and for God to put a day together for me today!... ["...8If thou know not, O thou fairest among women, go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock, and feed thy kids beside the shepherds' tents. 9I have compared thee, O my love, to a company of horses in Pharaoh's chariots..."] If Solomon took moment to comtemplate his lovely at his side he must of be thinking of Genesis and how God made us male and female and what he took for us to be attracted to each other!... And Solomon could not find words to describe how his love, perhaps maiden, in his harem was put together, and how fair she was!... And a funny turn, she is compared to Pharaohs horses tied to chariot! And yet one would be thinking that such a lovely stallion, faithful to her task and yet with gallantry and humbleness and meekness to pull a chariot!... And I could not help but just slip through the cracks the notion of how beautiful God sees faith and those who are so faithful!... ...Like to a company of horses in Pharaoh's chariots...pulling the wagon of the king!...and get his task done!... Blessings. Amen. thbg thbg
Thank you freind for your kind comment! And I was thinking later as flipped the pages of my bibles to 2Chronicles 7:14,
["...14If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land..."]
And this dimension of being faithful, submitted, meek, tame, committed, and I would picture the stallions in such way, such strength, all under control and gallant submission! And I would think God looks on the lowly of heart in such a way as docile, being poor in spirit, but not poor of spirit, yet all yelding, like God demonstrated to us in the person of Jesus!...
Brother Frank, God sees qualities of human being or animals that we so not see. Maybe as human we see the outside appearance or the obvious state in front of us. But God sees our heart, our attitude, our potential and even our love for Him.[img]http://smileys.on-my-web.com/repository/Animals/horse-riding.gif[/img]
Thank God that we indeed have great and much hope in the God who see us differently from the rest of the world.

Thank you 'Silver' for your kind comment! It is very insightful! I can remember how in Job God takes to task the magnitude and magesty of the Leviathan who can nobody tame and its scales are so tightly knit together that no air passes through! Thanks for sharing!...
