Good morning, Father.
Thank you so much for all that you have blessed me with, especially your presence in my life, letting me know you are there and you care. Thank you for my Mate and my children, and please continue to nurture and grow each one of them, faithful Shepherd. Thank you for the awesome vastness and variety and intricacy of your creation, Lord. I am blown away at the detail you put into each tiny microscopic cell and structure, all the way to the unfathomable size of the universe. Amazing. Simply amazing!! :O

Psalm 19 ERV

To the director: A song of David. The heavens tell about the glory of God. The skies announce what his hands have made. 
Each new day tells more of the story, and each night reveals more and more about God’s power. 

You cannot hear them say anything. They don’t make any sound we can hear. 
But their message goes throughout the world. Their teaching reaches the ends of the earth. The sun’s tent is set up in the heavens. 
It comes out like a happy bridegroom from his bedroom. It begins its path across the sky like an athlete eager to run a race. 
It starts at one end of the sky and runs all the way to the other end. Nothing can hide from its heat. 
The LORD’S teachings are perfect. They give strength to his people. The LORD’S rules can be trusted. They help even the foolish become wise. 
The LORD’S laws are right. They make people happy. The LORD’S commands are good. They show people the right way to live. 
Learning respect for the LORD is good. It will last forever. The LORD’S judgments are right. They are completely fair. 
His teachings are worth more than pure gold. They are sweeter than the best honey dripping from the honeycomb. 
His teachings warn his servants, and good things come to those who obey them. 
People cannot see their own mistakes, so don’t let me commit secret sins. 
Don’t let me do what I know is wrong. Don’t let sin control me. If you help me, I can be pure and free from sin. 
May my words and thoughts please you. LORD, you are my Rock—the one who rescues me. 

Lord, I thank you for the opportunities each day to learn more about you and your awesome creation — including myself, my Mate, and other people! Thank you for the wind, thank you for music, thank you for birdsong, and thank you for coyote song in the night! Thank you for technology, all the awesome videos and narratives that reveal the intricate details and hidden places and stunning vistas of your creation. Thank you for leading me step by step again yesterday, moving forward without planning it out — because I could not have done so. Thank you for progress and thank you for keeping me humble, even using my physical body to keep me looking to you for help and comfort. Thank you, Lord God, for this wonderful journey that is life — the only way to truly experience your mercy. 🙂
