Greetings on this Tuesday~I pray this finds you abiding and resting in the Shadow on the Most High God. You'll never believe what our youngest and I did last night(hint-it is something I never did in the 60's)-give up? Well, my girl decided she wanted to tie-dye some t-shirts for her girls bed shirts. She asked me why I never did it back in the day and I can't honestly say except I don't think I ever cared for the look, even back then. I did however batik fabric and loved doing that. After having a wonderful light Spinach-Strawberry salad we got to work and it was quite humorous as well as fun. It should be interesting to see how they turn out once they are washed. Today I hope to finish making the binding for the quilt I'm giving away to a very special someone. I will post photos after the fact-don't want to ruin a surprise. Hubby and I may be painting this afternoon when he gets back from golf.
This morning I put on some of my favorite praise music. Do you ever do that? I can tell you it is the very best way to start a day! As the music played I also opened up the word to Psalms-I absolutely love going through them. Words from a song kept echoing through my mind-
"The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice". I decided to share some of the verses I found first and then the lyrics to one of my favorite songs, in fact it is listed on my playlist.
"But as for me, I shall sing of Thy strength; Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Thy lovingkindness in the morning, For Thou hast been my stronghold, And a refuge in the day of my distress.
O my strength, I will sing praises to Thee; For God is my stronghold, the God who shows me lovingkindness." Ps 59:16,17
"O God, Thou are my God; I shall seek Thee earnestly; My soul thirsts for Thee, my flesh yearns for Thee, In a dry and weary land where there is no water. Thus I have beheld Thee in the sanctuary, To see Thy power and Thy Glory."Ps 63:1,2
"But as for me, I will hope continually, And will praise Thee yet more and more. My mouth shall tell of Thy righteousness, And of Thy salvation all day long; For I do not know the sum of them. I will come with the mighty deeds of the Lord God; I will make mention of Thy righteousness, Thine along."Ps.71:14-16
Lastly here is one of my favorite songs-if you have audio on your 'puter it is the second song on my playlist-listen and enjoy.
I Belong by Kathryn Scott
Not angels, nor demons, no power on earth or heaven
Not distance, nor danger, no trouble now or ever
Nothing can take me from your love
I belong, I belong to you
Not hardship, nor hunger, no pain or depth of sorrow
Not weakness, nor failure, no broken dream or promise.
Have a day walking steadfastly in His presence!
