Thanks for the New York comments. If you're reading this and you didn't see my post asking for suggestions for our upcoming trip please scroll on down and help a girl out. I also put the request on my status on facebook and have received some fun suggestions there, too!
Maybe you were looking for the psalm of the week. I hope so! It's my all-time most favorite psalm, Psalm 8.
Psalm 8 starts will praise to God. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth. Because of who He is and what He's done. Then the psalmist (David) writes about God's creation. If you know me at all you know I love the outdoors. We worked in the yard for 2 days at the end of last week and I love it out there. I love the colors of my flowers, that my yard is a beautiful lush green, my garden where I have a few herbs & tomatoes & peppers growing, the sound of the waterfall from the spa. The weather was perfect -- absolutely perfect -- yesterday. I sat outside and read and pondered God's call in my life. I LOVE God's creation. But the psalmist wrote that when he considered all that God had made and how fabulous it is (I added that one little part) he was amazed that God made man His best and most prized creation. In fact, David wrote that God crowns us, humans, with glory and majesty.
Take your hands and make a circle with your fingers. Yes, do it, I'm not kidding. One big circle with both hands, not separately. Now, raise your hands and put your circle on top of your head. That's to symbolize your crown because Psalm 8 tells us that God crowns us with glory and majesty.
Friend, please be reminded today that God loves you, you are His prized creation, and He crowns you with glory and majesty.
That's why I love Psalm 8. What are your thoughts?
Serving the King, who crowns me with glory and majesty,
