(Pray for Dr. Anna while she’s away on respite, and join her in reflection this week on the following Psalm.)
“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of his hands. Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world. In them he has placed a tent for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; It rejoices as a strong man to run his course. Its rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from its heat.”
While I’m away for a bit this summer, please reflect on Psalm 19. Pause in your daily occupations to give thanks to God for the beauty and wonder of this earth, unperturbed by human machinations. Express gratitude today, for another precious day to live.
