Family Tree Friday, Jul 23 2010 

A family tree for 60th Birthday: 


the circle: psalms 128

 1…Happy is every one that feareth the LORD, that walketh in His ways.
2 When thou eatest the labour of thy hands, happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
3 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine, in the innermost parts of thy house; thy children like olive plants, round about thy table.
4 Behold, surely thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.
5 The LORD bless thee out of Zion; and see thou the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life;
6 And see thy children’s children. Peace be upon Israel! 

 At the base of the tree,

psalms 1,3:

And he shall be like a tree planted by streams of water,that bringeth forth its fruit in its season, and whose leaf doth not wither; and in whatsoever he doeth he shall prosper
