Good Day, Ladies. Today if I could, I would send you all a bouquet of fresh flowers, so in lieu of that, the above photo will have to suffice.
This morning, a reader sent me this hymn with the lyrics written on it and so I am sharing it and thinking about some of the things the song means.
The Bible indicates that all who obey the gospel and become disciples of Christ are complete, or sufficiently equipped. A well-rounded person is complete. There are several meanings of the word "perfect" and this one has a spiritual application that means a person who has become a Christian is complete.
You can do a word-search, using the Websters 1828 dictionary and the Robert Young Analytical Concordance to the Bible will have the words broken down into the different meanings in scripture. The word "perfect" in the Bible also means to fulfill or to accomplish.
Another thing that appears in the song are the words "table land." This is a geographical term that describes a piece of land jutting out of the lower land that also is flat like a table. It is sometimes called a plateau or a mesa. A famous table land is The Atherton Tableland in Queensland, Australia. So, when you hear this song with that knowledge, you will know that heaven's table land is a spiritual term describing the practice of rising above the petty problems (the tale-bearing, the jealousies, the negative) of life. It might even indicate sitting down to a feast while obstacles, difficulties and problems occupy the lower ground.
3. She had spent a great deal of her life being anxious, unhappy and frustrated, and this had developed into a depressing personality.
