Buttons


And I will fasten her as a button in a sure place; and she shall be for a glorious throne to her father's house.

Isaiah 22:23

This is a LaTeaDah paraphrase. The original verse says "And I will fasten him [as] a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father's house."

Assuredly, God speaks to us from our place in life --- from where we are, and the button illustration seems so meaningful to me today.
Have a blessed week-end! If your week has been like mine, you are happy for a rest like I am!

  2. Great reworking of the verse! It speaks to me more this way than the original, and that is what counts!

  4. That's a splendid paraphrase and had me wondering how I could've possibly missed such a beautiful verse. (My favorite color is yellow so those buttons are making me grin.)

  6. I am so glad you are enjoying my story. There is a lot more yet so I hope you will ocntinue to return.

    Initially I thought "I have never come across a button in my Bible" and then I saw it was a paraphraze. You are so right God is speaking to us all the time in the most mundane as well as the spectacular if we have ears to hear.
