12 "But where can wisdom be found?
Where does understanding dwell?
13 Man does not comprehend its worth;
it cannot be found in the land of the living.
14 The deep says, 'It is not in me';
the sea says, 'It is not with me.'
15 It cannot be bought with the finest gold,
nor can its price be weighed in silver.
16 It cannot be bought with the gold of Ophir,
with precious onyx or sapphires.
17 Neither gold nor crystal can compare with it,
nor can it be had for jewels of gold.
18 Coral and jasper are not worthy of mention;
the price of wisdom is beyond rubies.
19 The topaz of Cush cannot compare with it;
it cannot be bought with pure gold.
20 "Where then does wisdom come from?
Where does understanding dwell?
21 It is hidden from the eyes of every living thing,
concealed even from the birds of the air.
22 Destruction and Death say,
'Only a rumor of it has reached our ears.'
23 God understands the way to it
and he alone knows where it dwells,
24 for he views the ends of the earth
and sees everything under the heavens.
25 When he established the force of the wind
and measured out the waters,
26 when he made a decree for the rain
and a path for the thunderstorm,
27 then he looked at wisdom and appraised it;
he confirmed it and tested it.
28 And he said to man,
'The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom,
and to shun evil is understanding.' "

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-
10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

I wanted to do a post dedicated to all of my dear blogging friends! This is really for me, because I find so much satisfaction in all of your lives! You all bring me such joy and encouragement just by simply living your life and giving me a glimpse of who you are. My dear friend Meredith, Davene, Lisa, Mama Jill, Katheryn, Lizzy, Holly, Jodi, Roxy, Sharon, Melissa. And my sisters Marie, Himilce and Olga. And of course my mom! I love you all and love reading about your lives! And all of you who are reading and haven't left a comment I appreciate your reading and hope to hear from you!!!
While Benjamin is finishing his schooling in Florida and has to stay on base we both decided it would be best for me to stay in Ohio with my sister and brother. I also wanted to use my sister's Midwife so it all worked out so well! Marie and I are having a ball! From sharing each other's closet to talking without ceasing, Jon has been very patient! :) I have been in Ohio now for four days and before that I had been to Chicago, Nevada, Arizona and Colorado. It feels so good to be here and settled. Marie flew down to help me make the long drive back with our car from Az to Ohio. It was wonderful to have her help and company. Here are a few pictures of the last couple weeks. :)

Im still here! Its been a very busy three weeks or should I say Summer! :) As I write I can't help but write of the goodness of my God. His peace is always near and so comforting. He had every portion of this unsure time for me all planned out. He has guided my every step! I have many catch up posts to post with pictures. And a picture of my sweet Benjamin when I was able to see him two weeks ago. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
