Psalms 128:3 "Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine In the very heart of your house, Your children like olive plants All around your table."
In Psalms 128, the Lord promises blessings to the man who fears Him and more specifically in verse 3, He promises that such a man's wife will be a life-giving partner in the center of his home and his children will be a sweet smelling aroma around his table.
As a man who fears the Lord, I am forever grateful to Him for blessing me with my wonderful wife who loves me unconditionally and gives herself to me as a faithful life-giving partner. Additionally, as a man who fears the Lord, I am forever grateful to Him for blessing me with a full quiver of five beautiful children who love me and will always be a sweet-smelling aroma to me in my home like that of a sweet olive tree in full bloom.
Heavenly Father, I praise You for You are Jehovah Shalom, the Lord our Peace! Thank You Lord for blessing me with my beautiful wife and all of my children. May Your peace with nothing missing and nothing broken be upon our home and our relationships as You faithfully watch over us and make Your face to shine upon us in Your grace. I love You Jesus! Amen!
