The blessing of the Lord be upon you.


“The blessing of the LORD be upon you; We bless you in the name of the LORD!” (Psalm 129:8b)


God blesses the righteous, and He gives grace to the humble. We also should shower blessings upon the family of God. Such blessings will include: words of encouragement, gifts of charity, expressions of appreciation and respect.

There was a time when the blessing, publicly expressed in the marketplace of communities of the faithful, was common.

May there be a return to those days, and may God grant me the grace to be a blessing to my co-workers in the vineyard of the Lord's field.

God bless you abundantly.

Not a dissimilar thought to what I have blogged this morning.

Bless you, my brother!

PS Is it possible that God guides our thoughts!
