Psoaring thru Psalm 8

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! I just got the weather report that gusty winds and rain are expected until about noon, and I notice that the wind is really blowing all the trees and shrubs already. Guess that's the tropical storm moving out.

But yesterday, I really enjoyed the cooler weather which never got out of the eighties. I went for a walk in the park, careful to stay in the shade because of my healing nose, which is really red this morning. I walked along the sidewalk, admiring the thick underbrush across the canal which really looked like the original Florida. There were big ripples in the water either from tilapia or unknown critters down in the deeps. Lots of white toadstools are popping up all over from all the rain, but the ibises like to get the underground critters that the rain brings out. Once in a great while I see one on top of a light pole, but for the most part, they keep their heads to the ground.

The rain is good for the plants and brings out a lot of flowers, God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Psalm 8
O Lord, our Lord, the majesty of your name fills the earth!
Your glory is higher than the heavens.

You have taught children and nursing
infants to give you praise.
They silence your enemies
who were seeking revenge.

When I look at the night sky and see the work
of your fingers--
the moon and stars you have set in place--
what are mortals that you should
think of us,
mere humans that you should care for us?
For you made us only a little lower than God
and you crowned us with glory and honor.
You put us in charge of everything you
giving us authority over all things--
the sheep and the cattle
and all the wild animals,
the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
and everything that swims in the ocean currents.
O Lord, our Lord, the majesty of your name
fills the earth!

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

Love and hugs,
