Guten Morgen

This week is ridiculously busy!! It's Opera week! I'm involved in an opera workshop and performances start tonight, so unfortunately, it hasn't really left a lot of time for baking. I mean I'm in rehearsals for at least 4 hours a night. It's totally worth it, but like I said, not lots of time for baking.

So, that's on hold for a little while, but I really wanted to share with you; not something about baking, but actually relating back to my post about the sunrise. Tuesday's and Thursday's I really have the opportunity to sit and watch the sunrise. And as I was sitting there this morning, I couldn't help but think about how awesome God is. So, I thought I would share some Bible verses which really express the beauty of God in words I could never come up with on my own. Enjoy!

Psalm 19

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

The heavens declare the glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Day after day they pour forth speech; 
 night after night they display knowledge.

There is no speech or language 
 where their voice is not heard. [a]

Their voice [b] goes out into all the earth, 
 their words to the ends of the world. 
 In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun,

which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, 
 like a champion rejoicing to run his course.

It rises at one end of the heavens 
 and makes its circuit to the other; 
 nothing is hidden from its heat.

The law of the LORD is perfect, 
 reviving the soul. 
 The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, 
 making wise the simple.

The precepts of the LORD are right, 
 giving joy to the heart. 
 The commands of the LORD are radiant, 
 giving light to the eyes.

The fear of the LORD is pure, 
 enduring forever. 
 The ordinances of the LORD are sure 
 and altogether righteous.

They are more precious than gold, 
 than much pure gold; 
 they are sweeter than honey, 
 than honey from the comb.

By them is your servant warned; 
 in keeping them there is great reward.

Who can discern his errors? 
 Forgive my hidden faults.

Keep your servant also from willful sins; 
 may they not rule over me. 
 Then will I be blameless, 
 innocent of great transgression.

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart 
 be pleasing in your sight, 
 O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Yes, I love that psalm. And there's nothing better than a cup of coffee and the Psalms of David. When I'm *good* I read five per day.... for example, on the 4th day of the month, I'll read, psalm 4, 34, 64, 94, 124; and then proverbs 4.

Psalm 121 is a favorite:

1.I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from?
2.My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
3.He will not let your foot slip-- he who watches over you will not slumber;
4.indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
5.The LORD watches over you-- the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6.the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
7.The LORD will keep you from all harm-- he will watch over your life;
8.the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
