Sursee Saturday :: A Word Picture for The Netherlands

Psalm 6512


Loved my trip to the Netherlands…even just love that name- The Nether Lands– sounds so much like a C. S. Lewis adventure novel.

In my Chronological Bible reading today, I read these verses and they pictured to me what I was feeling and seeing as we drove around.  Just wanted to share this little Sursee with you, my friend.


9 You care for the land and water it;

    you enrich it abundantly.

The streams of God are filled with water

    to provide the people with grain,
    for so you have ordained it.
10 You drench its furrows and level its ridges;
    you soften it with showers and bless its crops.


tulip fields

11 You crown the year with your bounty,
    and your carts overflow with abundance.

12The grasslands of the wilderness overflow;
    the hills are clothed with gladness.

13 The meadows are covered with flocks
    and the valleys are mantled with grain;
    they shout for joy and sing.

Psalm 65:9-13
