Psalm 139

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! We are having a downpour right now, but I am hoping for dry weather tomorrow for the drive to the VA. (I am writing this Wed. night).

Today I walked unexpectedly out to see Mama gator. Unexpectedly, because I did not have my walking shoes on, and only intended to go a little ways. But, anyway, I looked and looked and then saw her behind the nest almost hidden. She is very vigilant.

I had an ultrasound on my heart today, and as I looked at the screen I could see and hear the heart as it beat and heard it sound like a washing machine. I couldn't help thinking how we are "fearfully and wonderfully made", so that is why some quotes from Psalm 139 are being passed on to you.

Psalm 139 NIV

O Lord, you have searched me and you know me,
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord.

You hem me in---behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me.
too lofty for me to attain.
For you created my inmost being.
You knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

...Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts
See if there is any offensive way
in me and lead me in the way everlasting.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,

Pious thoughts...
See if there is any offensive way
in me and lead me in the way everlasting.
