Course of life

I have written a small book with photos that I have taken and Bible inscriptions. I enclose it in this blog.


To memory of my dear parents, Kerttu and Vihtori Vierula. They taught me the word of God since I was a little child.
I got a thought of writing this book when I was sitting beside my mother´s sickbed. I read the Bible to her when she was not able to read herself any more. She liked to look at pictures in small books and was able to read a short text.
There are collections of Bible scriptures in this book that have been encouraging for me in different periods of my life. I hope that they can be helpful and can encourage also many others in their journey of life.

I have taken Bible verses from The Holy Bible New international Version

For you created my inmost being; 
you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; 
your works are wonderful, 
I know that full well. 
My frame was not hidden from you 
when I was made in the secret place, 
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 
Your eyes saw my unformed body; 
all the days ordained for me were written in your book 
before one of them came to be. 
How precious to me are your thoughts, God! 
How vast is the sum of them!
Psalms 139: 13-17

You have searched me, Lord, 
and you know me. 
You know when I sit and when I rise; 
you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; 
you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue 
you, Lord, know it completely. 
You hem me in behind and before, 
and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, 
too lofty for me to attain.
Psalms 139: 1-6
