The falcon made the king's hand his joy,
and became indifferent
to the search for carrion.
All animals from the gnat
to the elephant are of the family of God
and depend on Him for sustenance.
What a sustainer is God!
The truth and light and life
was revealed to me
many years to me as a young girl,
I saw His presence wherever I walked
I found in Him
a Refuge and LIFE.
I became family
to the heavens!

HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE
When you were a child,
did you ever wonder how
the ocean didn't slide off the earth?
How all the water didn't spill out
and eventually there would be
no more water in the oceans?
What a great creation!
Sometimes even now I think of
how amazing is our God
about so many things.
Life majestically tells of God,
the great Creator.
Who but God could design oceans
teaming with unimaginable sea creatures from
microscopic algae to gigantic whales and
countless colorful marine life in between?
Plus grasses and coral and sand and,
well the list is infinitesimal.
Years ago, a family did a little
snorkeling and some diving.
Under the sea it was eerily silent,
a whole other world.
even close to describing it.
God shows His Greatness
- Who taught the sun where
to stand in the morning,
Who told the ocean
you can only come this far?
Who showed the moon
where to hide 'til evening,
Whose words alone
can catch a falling star?
And this life answers perfectly:
Well I know He lives,
I know our God lives;
All of creation testify.
This life within me cries,
I know God is - HE lives.
Our Great Creator and our One God.
And it is indescribeable - marvellous!.
How I Praise the Lord,
O my soul. O Lord our God,
You are very great;
You are clothed with
splendor and majesty.
He wraps himself in light
as with a garment;
he stretches out the heavens
like a tent and lays the beams
of his upper chambers on their waters.
He makes the clouds his chariot
and rides on the wings of the wind.
He makes winds his messengers,
flames of fire his servants.
He set the earth on its foundations;
it can never be moved.
You covered it
with the deep as with a garment;
the waters stood above the mountains.
But at your rebuke the waters fled,
at the sound of your thunder
they took to flight;
they flowed over the mountains,
they went down into the valleys,
to the place you assigned for them.
You set a boundary they cannot cross;
never again will they cover the earth.
He makes springs pour water into the ravines;
it flows between the mountains.
They give water to all the beasts of the field;
the wild donkeys quench their thirst.
The birds of the air nest by the waters;
they sing among the branches.
He waters the mountains
from his upper chambers;
the earth is satisfied
by the fruit of his work.
He makes grass grow for the cattle,
and plants for man to cultivate -
bringing forth food from the earth:
wine that gladdens the heart of man,
oil to make his face shine,
and bread that sustains his heart.
The trees of the Lord are well watered,
the cedars of Lebanon that he planted.
There the birds make their nests;
the stork has its home in the pine trees.
The high mountains belong to the wild goats;
the crags are a refuge for the coneys.
The moon marks off the seasons,
and the sun knows when to go down.
You bring darkness, it becomes night,
and all the beasts of the forest prowl.
The lions roar for their prey
and seek their food from God.
The sun rises, and they steal away;
they return and lie down in their dens.
Then man goes out to his work,
to his labor until evening.
How many are your works, O Lord!
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
There is the sea, vast and spacious,
teaming with creatures beyond number -
living things both large and small.
all praises are due to God truly
for His wonderous creations!
