The Creative Spirit
Catholic blogging has opened up a whole new wonderful world to me and has also rejuvenated the creative spirit in me that died when I turned my back on God.
Thank you to all of you who take the time to read what I write. To those of you who comment, thank you for your support and encouragement. I am glad if something on this blog helps you or someone you know, enriches your faith, or simply puts a smile on your face. More than anything I pray it gives glory to God.
I don't have any major changes in mind for Daughter of the King this year, but I have given her a face lift as you can see~ something a little more fitting for the winter months ahead.
I look forward to beginning a new Liturgical Year with all of you as Advent begins on Sunday.
Thank you and may God continue to bless each of you.
Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King
My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
