I went out just before sunrise. The light of the sun was reflecting over the hill, from the sky above, yet was light enough to see.
In my ears I heard the air filled with a cacophony of birds singing to our Creator. Such a wonderful, marvelous, lovely sound to hear.
I cannot help but thank and praise the Lord for the beauty He has given to the crown of His creation. You and me.
I have posted here about our need for some rain. Well from Saturday morning (August30) until Tuesday (September 02) we were blessed to receive 3.5 inches of the pearly dew from heaven.
To our bountiful Creator we owe much thanksgiving and praise. Thank YOU LORD.
I pray that all will have a blessed day of Thanking the One who alone is worthy of thanksgiving, worship and praise. It is one thing to be thankful; it is quite another to know whom to thank.
Thank the LORD our Maker, Saviour, Redeemer and Friend.
“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride.
Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, Save in the death of Christ my God; All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to His blood.
See, from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down; Did e’er such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose so rich a crown.
Were the whole realm of nature mine, That were a present far to small; Love so amazing, so divine, Demands my soul, my life, my all.”
by Isaac Watts 1674-1748
and still a wonderful hymn of praise to our God and Savior Jesus Christ.
Always praising God along the banks of Flat Creek.
On the afternoon of July 30, 2011 we had a massive historical event take place at our house. It rained. It rained so much it moved the dust from the ground to the air. When it stopped raining the dust fell back to the ground.
It’s still dusty. I say this laughing, because the rain had no sooner left, then the ground was dry again.
If I get to feeling pretty bad about the dry; all I need to do is think of those people in Africa who are in drought and famine; and then I see how blessed we really are.
Lord of all creation, Jesus, we need some rain; and please help those people in Kenya, Africa who are experiencing such chaos of drought, famine and military barbarism. Meet their needs, and glorify YOUR name.
It’s Sunday. Go to church today and worship our Lord and Savior. Pray for the Lord to reveal your sins, confess them to Him, repent of them. Then, pray for rain.
We need rain along the banks of Flat Creek too.
A hymn of praise to our God and King…
Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love; Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, Opening to the sun above. Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; Drive the dark of doubt away; Giver of immortal gladness, Fill us with the light of day!
Have a great day and worship the King at your local church.
