Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true,
 
 
whatsoever things are honest,
 
 
whatsoever things are just,
 
 
whatsoever things are pure,
 
 
whatsoever things are lovely,
 
 
whatsoever things are of good report;
 
 
if there be any virtue,
 
 
and if there be any praise,
 
 
think on these things. 
 
 
- Philippians 4:8
 
 
 
I wanted to share the verses just before and after this one, too.

I'm amazed at how much these passages have to tell me.  There's something new each and every time I read them! 

The peace of God truly passeth all understanding.
 
 
 
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.  Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.  Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. 
- Philippians 4:4-9
 
 
Rejoice in the Lord!

Love,

Me

Those are some of my favorite verses.  Like you said, there's so much in them, something new every time. 
 
"Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."
 
That one really spoke to me this morning.  We memorized that verse when I was little by making up a tune and "singing" it.  It really helped with the memorization process:)
 
P.S. Beautiful paintings!  I just found some of them the other day - No. 3 and 7:) 
No. 8, with the two girls, is lovely!

I looked up this passage in the Young's literal translation to see what verse 6 said, and it reads with even more clarity.  Here is the whole passage.
 
 

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice;
let your forbearance be known to all men; the Lord [is] near;

for nothing be anxious, but in everything by prayer, and by supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God;

and the peace of God, that is surpassing all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

As to the rest, brethren, as many things as are true, as many as [are] grave, as many as [are] righteous, as many as [are] pure, as many as [are] lovely, as many as [are] of good report, if any worthiness, and if any praise, these things think upon;

the things that also ye did learn, and receive, and hear, and saw in me, those do, and the God of the peace shall be with you.
Reading Young's can be quite interesting, and many times it has cleared up some difficulty I have understanding a passage.  
 
For instance, Exodus 20:13, when translated literally from the Hebrew, reads "thou dost not murder" in place of kill.
 
Very interesting...
 
Anyway, I was just thinking about that tonight.  >=)
 
I'm glad you enjoyed it!  I love No, 8 too:)
 
TTYL!

Actually, the version we memorized (I think it was...NKJV?  Can't remember...we used to use that version, though), reads, "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer, and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God."
 
It does help to look at a different translation sometimes, but my favorite things to do it look at the original Greek with the Strong's numbers.
 
The original Greek for the word "careful" means "anxious".
 
I have Young's on my laptop, and it is quite interesting to read, and helpful at times, although rather confusing in some places, too;)
 
Yes, Exodus 20:13 is very interesting...once again, in the original Greek (I love using Strong's:), that word "kill" means "murder".
 
How about Deut 22:5?
"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God."
I think it's interesting that, using Strong's, the list of things that pertaineth to a man include mainly armour and weapons, and that "man", this case, means "a valiant man, or a warrior".
Hmm, takes on a whole new meaning, doesn't it?=)
 
Yep, very interesting stuff=)
 
TTYL!

I've been finding fun paintings and pictures in diverse places on the web, and putting them in a folder so I have them readily available.  They've come in handy!
