Last week we walked through gateways and doorways. This week I invite you to sit on my balconies with a hot cup of chamomile tea or a glass of chardonnay as we view from apartments to vast estates and yes we'll venture downstairs onto verandas and promenade through parks and exotic places.
From quaint apartments with fire escapes,
with potted plants on their window sills
and rare orchids in unexpected places. - And by His Light we walked through the darkness.
To Vanna White's turquiose Newport Beach getaway,
we'll see the bay full of bobbing vessels. - And the friendship and counsel of God were over our tents.
From ornate wrought iron and white wicker chairs,
we gaze at Greek statues among topiaries shaped like pears. -- And the Almighty was with us as our children were about us.
We travel to China Town in San Fran
and watch laterns sway in the wind. -- He called us happy and blessed us because we deliver to the poor and to those crying out for help.
From balconies in New Orleans, we reminisce of by-gone days
and later walk through Jackson Square. -- And we caused the widow's heart to sing with joy.
But oh! Those secret hidden balconies
With their spiral staircases
That take us to a vignette of mossy stone walls with fountains and cafe chairs. -- For He has clothed us with justice as a royal robe and has given us a crown of honor.
From Laguna Beach, we see
as the sun sets into the sea. -- And He multiplies our days as the sand.
From balconies on pastel homes in the Gulf,
we bid you good night to a full moon.
I hope you have enjoyed our journey through Job 29.
"My root is spread out and open to the waters and the dew lies all night upon my branch."
Happy Purim which begins today at dusk and ends at dusk on Monday -- I'm studying Esther -- a time to draw near as we are called for such a time as this -- May we all intercede in prayer for those in Japan.

I'd love for y'all to leave a comment or two about our journey from our balcony views. Hope your tea didn't get too cold. Blessings Terri
