All Things Beautiful

As I said in an earlier post, I am at the beach this week!!

It has been a beautiful week.  We have had afternoon thunderstorms, but otherwise it has been a perfect week weather related.

I came up from the beach for a little break  from the heat.  As I am setting here at the computer, I have a perfect view out my window of  the ocean.  I  am just thinking how beautiful His creation is.  A beautiful display of his power and majesty. A magnificent portrait- – no end to the ocean, the beautiful sunrays glistening on the water, the water just fades in to the clouds.  Just a sample of the things that He has provided for our enjoyment!!!! 

Sometimes I know that I take a lot of  His creation for granted. I go through my day not even thanking Him for all He has provided for me.  His creation speaks so loudly of  His great power. When I take time to soak in His beauty, I am amazed at  people’s unbelief. I look at the stars, the moon and the sun and set in awe of  the wonder of who He is.

 The creator of all of  heaven and earth— and He is mindful of me. Wow!  His most precious creation— people.

Psalm 8

A psalm of David.

 1 O LORD, our Lord,
       how majestic is your name in all the earth!
       You have set your glory
       above the heavens.

 2 From the lips of children and infants
       you have ordained praise [b]
       because of your enemies,
       to silence the foe and the avenger.

 3 When I consider your heavens,
       the work of your fingers,
       the moon and the stars,
       which you have set in place,

 4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
       the son of man that you care for him?

 5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings [c]
       and crowned him with glory and honor.

 6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
       you put everything under his feet:

 7 all flocks and herds,
       and the beasts of the field, 

8 the birds of the air,
       and the fish of the sea,
       all that swim the paths of the seas.

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

 Dear Lord, thank you for the gift of your beautiful creation. Thank you for the gift of your son. Thank you that you are mindful of me. I praise you, O LORD, how majestic is your name in all the earth!!!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
