Back in January Patricia at I Want To See God gave me this lovely little blog award. I have been awarded it again, this time by Colleen at Thoughts on Grace. The award is given to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.
The rules for this award are to thank the giver with a link back to their blog and then pass it on to five other bloggers. As this award has been going around for some time now, I realize I may have tagged someone already awarded. Feel free to break the rules (I usually do) by not re~posting about it.
Here are my awardees:
Colleen at Inadequate Disciple
Anne at Imprisoned in My Bones
Caroline at Bell of the Wanderer
Victor at Time for Reflections
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.
