"O Lord my God, You are very great"
I am in Missouri this week staying with my mom and dad. I'll be in town for my 30th class reunion. 25 years ago when I saw pictures of people, in the local paper, celebrating their 30th class reunion I'd think, "Man, those people look old." Well, here I am 30 years later hoping our class picture isn't in the paper. My niece and nephews might feel compelled to say, "Man, those people look old." It will be great to see everyone. I just hope we have name tags! I went on a walk, this morning, on my parents farm. I think Francis Scott Key was here, in Missouri, when he penned the line "amber waves of grain" in the Star Spangled Banner. For one thing Missouri has seasons where as in South Texas we have hot and hotter. It was a beautiful fall day, this morning, as I walked down the gravel road with a cool breeze blowing. The sun was shining, the shades of autumn were magnificent with trees just turning from green to gold, red and brown. The golden soybeans, blowing in the wind, are getting ready for harvest. They looked just like "amber waves of grain." I was reminded of Psalm 104: 13-14, "The earth is satisfied by the fruit of his work. He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for man to cultivate--bringing forth food from the earth." The whole scene was breathtaking. "O Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty. He wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters." Psalm 104: 1-2.
As a reminder I will be at In Full Bloom in Centralia on Friday 1-4 and at the Hatton Craft Fair on Saturday from 9-4 to introduce the new 18" Biblical doll named Ruth. Come by for a visit. I'd love to meet you. You can also find out more about us online at TheFreedomGirls.com. I will continue with Ruth's Journey next Tuesday. If you have a story about your meditations with the Lord and His greatness, please leave your comment.
