Good Monday Morning:
Either the weatherman was wrong again or I am in a dream still. It is supposed to be sunny and warm today and tomorrow but looks totally overcast and 46 degrees. I hope the weather where you are at is more to your liking. I have a quote from Winston Churchill I thought you would enjoy.
“Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all the others.”
As the writer of Psalm 65 knew God is the Great Provider – The one who all praise is due.
1 Praise awaits you, O God, in Zion; to you our vows will be fulfilled.
2 O you who hear prayer, to you all men will come.
3 When we were overwhelmed by sins, you forgave our transgressions.
4 Blessed are those you choose and bring near to live in your courts! We are filled with the good things of your house, of your holy temple.
5 You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas,
6 who formed the mountains by your power, having armed yourself with strength,
7 who stilled the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, and the turmoil of the nations.
8 Those living far away fear your wonders; where morning dawns and evening fades you call forth songs of joy.
9 You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it.
10 You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops.
11 You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.
12 The grasslands of the desert overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness.
13 The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing.
He created us, knew us before we were formed in the womb. When we were in rebellion to him, living in sin, he provided his Son Christ Jesus as a payment for our transgressions. God provides rain and sun, fruitful land and crops. We are so very blessed by our Creator; why am I complaining about a cloudy cool day? Thank you God for all you have provided and continue to provide. I am going to go to work making a joyful noise to the Lord! Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho, it’s off to work we go!
For those of you that haven’t heard that song by the Seven Dwarfs of Snow White in a while here’s your chance again.
