I lift up my eyes to the hills…

  1. I’m enjoying these favourite pics at the start of the New Year – they’re clearing my head with their light and fresh air, the beautiful reminder of sunlight on the sea. Who knows where the quote comes from? 😉

    • Well I nearly said “Not you Diane” cos you obviously know it’s Psalm 121! But as you’ve blogged and expounded on it, I have to say I don’t agree that psalm says our help comes from the hills. I think it says, “I lift up my eyes to the hills…” (looking for help coming from there, maybe an army or the cavalry coming to help. But actually) “where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord”. ie NOT the hills. But maybe the Lord lives in the hills, I don’t know 😉

      My title was chosen at face value to say “Hey look at those lovely hills!” But they’re actually mountains, so that’s wrong too 😛 Using a Biblical quote for my own ends, wondering if anybody knows the reference…

      • Ooppss!! Sorry XX
        I think my thoughts were that the Lord lives in metaphorical hills and it is about looking upwards not downwards. Bit like the Oscar Wilde quote “we’re all living in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars”.
        can’t work out how to to emoticons on this but would do a kissing one, a heart one and a tongue out one 🙂 XX
