“I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless you, and praise your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall laud your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.” –Psalm 145: 1-5 (NRSV)
I know of 6 different families this summer that are gaining a baby to their household, including two staff members at our church. Needless to say, it is an exciting time of year. Not only are families growing but if you look around you will see that the trees and flowers have all come to bloom. New life is everywhere!
God is a great creator and a majestic painter. We sometimes forget to give the glory to the one responsible for the acts. Take a few minutes today to celebrate the beautiful creations around us and give praise to God for it all.
Holy Lord, thank you for the beauty that is found around us. Thank you for the smiles and laughter of little children and the grandeur of all created things. AMEN!
