{morning thoughts}

1 God, brilliant Lord, yours is a household name.

2 Nursing infants gurgle choruses about you;
toddlers shout the songs
That drown out enemy talk,
and silence atheist babble.

3-4 I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous,
your handmade sky-jewelry,
Moon and stars mounted in their settings.
Then I look at my micro-self and wonder,
Why do you bother with us?
Why take a second look our way?

5-8 Yet we've so narrowly missed being gods,
bright with Eden's dawn light.
You put us in charge of your handcrafted world,
repeated to us your Genesis-charge,
Made us lords of sheep and cattle,
even animals out in the wild,
Birds flying and fish swimming,
whales singing in the ocean deeps.

9 God, brilliant Lord,
your name echoes around the world.

often times as i fall asleep at night, i have a tendency to always think of problems and worry. when i wake up in the morning i usually feel discouraged. last night after i read this psalms there was no way i could lay awake worrying. so instead, i decided to fall asleep telling [Jesus] how awesome [He] is. i woke up thinking about [Him] and [His] greatness. i was so delighted.
as i looked at my room this morning i started laughing at the lovey mixture of decorations that i have accumulated from my lovely friends and family. it made me giggle and i wanted to share with you...
