..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

Midwinter Scene: The Cloak of Praise in Zion: Isaiah 61:3

Yes, provide for those in Zion who mourn, giving them garlands instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, a cloak of praise instead of a heavy spirit, so that they will be called trees of righteousness the planting of the Lord, to glorify Him. (Isaiah 61:3).

...still another winter storm in the Northeast, but how lovely, as this tree is "cloaked with praise"--
the righteous planting of the Lord! even in winter, I am grateful!

Cloaked with praise--aren't those beautiful words? I want my life to be cloaked with praise--and for it to be "continually in my mouth."
