God's Gift Of A Snow Day
So while I was pretty sure I would at least get a snow day out of this, I was dreading the inevitable digging out. I was awakened by the sound of the snow plows at 4:30 this morning- so much for sleeping in on my snow day.
Well I did manage to go back to sleep for awhile, then got up and made some coffee, prayed morning prayer, then checked out the blogosphere.
For my friends who live in areas without snow, here are a few pictures I snapped with my phone as I stood outside enjoying this fine winter day.
Now back to my snow day activities~ catching up on my reading, and maybe a movie or two thanks to Netflix.
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.
