The Apple of my Eye.

Greetings to all you forgiven children of Abba.
Here in Minnesota, we are well into fall (we had our first snow Tuesday). Fall brings many gifts to us- hunting season, beautiful foliage, and apple trees ready to be picked. Apple treats and pastries and desserts abound. One dear friend has already given me two apple crisp desserts the size of cakes!

All of this led me to wonder the other day as to the origin of the phrase 'the apple of my eye.' The first use I find of it is in Psalms 17:8, it goes like this;
Keep me as the apple of the eye;
Hide me in the shadow of Your wings.

This was actually a prayer for protection from David to his Abba. God was reminding David that he(and we)was the apple of Abba's eye. What it means literally is that we are as precious to Abba as the pupil of His own eye. Also that He will protect His children as passionately as He would His own eye.

So, next time you partake of an apple, remember that you, in your current condition, are totally precious to Him and that He is your protector.
WOW! What a Father.

Blessings,

Thomas

    I'm a servant / soldier / son of the Most High God , and His Son Jesus Christ ......... It gives me "Chicken Skin", and much joy to see other Christians ( especially in business and in the public eye ) not afraid to share their faith in Christ with a lost and dying world ! ! ! ! ! ! !
    No matter what "they" may say , we can't shrink back from proclaiming the truth of God's Word , and the PRICELESS REDEMPTION He paid for us through the sacrifice of Jesus ! ! ! ! ! ! ! LOVE covers a multitude of sins........ "Tex" from Plano, Texas

    We would like to express what a blessing it is to find a website of a company that is willing to show their faith in Christ. We just purchased a pair of boots from your company and now with this discovery we are very pleased that we did. You are now one of our favorites. If all the Christians would stand up and show their faith in God this would be a better world. Continue the good work God Bless You and Yours
