Oaks of Righteousness

Oaks of Righteousness

Mattaw Theme Verse

Isaiah 61:1-4

1 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,

2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,

3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of his splendor.

4 They will rebuild the ancient ruins
and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
that have been devastated for generations.

    Dear Precious Children ,
    La and I have talked twice today, and I just listened to Hillsong’s “You Said”. Think I amped up Hamlin’s yearly rainfall! My precious angel is solo excited to see you all and empty out all with which she’s been filled! I have confidence that a great work will be forthcoming. To GOD be the glory, and you most precious vessels as HIS own.
    Loving you as my own, (duh)
    Grammy Carole
