My Father Who Art In Heaven, I praise you…..
It is the second day of Lent,
I gaze out the window, pledging to be constantly aware of Your presence
The next 40 days … and after…
I see the beauty of the coral fountain outside my window
A hummingbird buzzes by, pauses and enjoys the nectar.
Yes God, That is what I need to do.
In my rushing around and busyness-
Pause and enjoy Your presence.
As the hummingbird needs the nectar for his energy,
I need You for my energy
How wonderful You are,
How wonderful is my world that You made.
Father, remind me to always soak up Your love-
As I soak up the sunshine and beauty of Your creation.
I will Praise, Thank You and Love You
As You guide me throughout my day.
Psalm 100 NIV
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his ; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
