Inspired by . . . a merry heart



He who is of merry heart has a continual feast. Prov 15:15


Surely this doesn’t refer to a literal feast of food, does it?

Read on, Beloved.


The kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Rom 14:17



Black Swallowtail


The joy of the Lord is your strength. Neh 8:10



Fox Squirrel


Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,

singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,

giving thanks always for all things to God the Father

in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Eph 5:18-20



Dual Dragonflies


By Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God,

that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. Heb 13:15



Male Black-chinned Hummingbird


Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines;

though the labor of the olive may fail,and the fields yield no food;

though the flock be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls –

yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Hab 3:17-18



Gulf Fritillary


Sorrowful, yet always rejoicing. 2 Cor 6:10


We also glory in tribulations. Rom 5:3


He who is of merry heart has a continual feast. Prov 15:15
