David wrote this

“The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places

indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me.”

I could write this too, for

my lines have been, and are, extremely pleasant

my heritage has been, and is, very beautiful

though my days progress into years

though some have more joy than others

I have not known one day that God has not blessed

it is as if God, in His infinite mercy

has filled a golden platter with His best gifts

the very best of all His blessings

has laid it before me and said

“Here, this is for you, enjoy!”


because of my God

the line of my life and my heritage are lovely



The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;

Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me.


Psalm 16:6
