God's Herald

Let us take time to marvel

at God's fingerprints on the world around us.

We see it everywhere, from a watercolor flower to a brightly painted butterfly.
Let us also see Him in one another.

Wishing you all a beautiful summer weekend
with eyes and hearts aware.

May we find His signature everywhere on the garments of what He has made.

{Psalm 8}
Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory
    in the heavens.
  Through the praise of children and infants
    you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
    to silence the foe and the avenger.
  When I consider your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,
  what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them?

  You have made them a little lower than the angels
    and crowned them with glory and honor.
  You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
    you put everything under their feet:
  all flocks and herds,
    and the animals of the wild,
  the birds in the sky,
    and the fish in the sea,
    all that swim the paths of the seas.

  Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Wishing you joy
as we care for each other
and for the beautiful gifts God has given us.

What an amazing Psalm, isn't it! It was the rain yesterday evening that absolutely overwhelmed me in a way rain hasn't in 63 years! I was filled with gratitude to the Heavenly Father, Creator of heaven and earth!

I'm sure I've told you this before Maria; I do miss the lilacs. I can almost smell their beautiful fragrance through the computer screen.
Thank you for sharing the lilacs and your dear heart.

It's me said...

Maria, I lost you...I made some changes in my bloglife, and when I deleted some old blogs, and opened two new ones...You fell through the cracks...I'm so sorry. I've missed you.

I have two new blogs. My main one is called "Got a Minute or Two" where I'm sharing short stories and pictures from my life journey.

And my second one is to handle the memes I participate in..I call it MY THREE, for Creative Tuesday, ABC Wednesday and Skywatch Friday.

I hope your drop by for a visit. I have you on my blog list now, and won't lose you again. HaHa.

What lovely pictures and perfect words. It really brightened my morning. We are having such a hard time keeping our flowers alive rain in so long and temps in the triple digets. The grass is straw...but when I see the fires in Colorado and the flooding in Florida...I count my blessings. Have a wonderful day!
