thy paths drop fatness

 ~ ~ ~


Thou crownest the year with thy goodness;

and thy paths drop fatness.

They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness:

and the little hills rejoice on every side.

The pastures are clothed with flocks;

the valleys also are covered with corn;

they shout for joy, they also sing.

Psalm 65:11


I once lived in a house where there was an old pear tree just outside my bedroom window.

I would lay there in the night, full moon shining in the window,

listening to ripe pears plopping down onto the grass beneath them.

I think of that old tree when I read these words.

Pears dropping their fatness and singing.

  1. Oh, I'd love to see the old pear tree at the house you once lived at. Pears used to be my favorite fruit as a child, until it changed to CHERRIES. : ) So glad to have you back blogging. I sure missed your sweet and sincere posts.


  2. Not sure I've ever read this psalm in the KJV but I like that word picture of "dropping fatness" especially after sharing your memory of the ripe pears. Thanks for sharing!
