"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."

Be still and know.

“Be still, and know that I am God!
I will be honored by every nation.
I will be honored throughout the world.”
Psalm 46: 10


"For a child is born to us,
a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
His government and its peace
will never end.
He will rule with fairness and justice 
from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity.
The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies
will make this happen!"
Isaiah 9: 6-7

Joy comes in the morning

Today seemed like a pretty gray day, unless of course, you saw the sunrise.  

What a beautiful sunrise it was!!  Amazing!  It was so much more beautiful in person, but I did happen to have my camera with me.

This is my favorite part of the day!  Each sunrise is so beautiful in it's uniqueness.  Thank You God!

Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us.
Your plans for us are too numerous to list.
You have no equal.
If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds,
I would never come to the end of them.
~Psalm 40: 5

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
~Lamentations 3: 22-23
