Think on These Things ~ Psalm 8

 LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
in the heavens.
 Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?
You have made them a little lower than the angels
and crowned them with glory and honor.
You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their feet:
all flocks and herds,
and the animals of the wild,  the birds in the sky,
and the fish in the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.
LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Psalm 8

I so love it when God brings His message to me in more than one setting,
confirming this message in my heart. He did so with the above verse, during
Pastor Chris' message on Sunday, and in the song below.

The photo is of St. Mary's Lake on Glacier Park ~ a favorite place for us to visit,
although the trips are too far apart. I love the majesty of the mountains, and seeing them
always makes me think of the Father and His masjesty and glory. We live about 50 miles
from the Beartooth Mountains and we can see them as we travel on the way to church, far away,
 yet still visible, that we may think upon God and is blessings His has given us, because He truly
loves and cares for each of us. I hope this is a blessing for you today!
