Your ways, O God, are holy. What god is so great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; You display Your power among the peoples -Psalm 77:13-14
God made earthworms and puppies.. God made people with the ability to invent asphalt and phones with little videocams.. God gives you every heartbeat and every breath.
I, Andrea, would like to share these wondrous facts about earthworms with you. You might already know them but they just go to show how amazing and creative God is. Some earthworms are itty-bitty, and some are gigantic (they live in the tropical rainforest, not here!!). You could slice an earthworm’s little brother in half, and he would have two half-brothers. ♥ There could be upwards of a million earthworms in one acre of dirt. 1,000,000!
Alright time to go do something on this lovely Friday evening besides write about slimy worms. They’re so cool. Ok bye.
I’m just gonna leaf this here.
Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.
Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?
Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
Thee sitting careless on a granary floor,
Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind;
Or on a half-reap’d furrow sound asleep,
Drowsed with the fume of poppies, while thy hook
Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers:
And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep
Steady thy laden head across a brook;
Or by a cider-press, with patient look,
Thou watchest the last oozings, hours by hours.
Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,–
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,
And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;
Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn
Among the river sallows, borne aloft
Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
The redbreast whistles from a garden-croft,
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.
So today’s reading from Grace for Today has a reference to oak trees in the Scripture verse passage. O how I love trees!
I will share a fantastic sentence from the Oct 11 reading. It happens to be the first sentence of the book’s devotional thoughts: “Praise and thanksgiving have the power to change lives.” Yes!
Be on the lookout this week to check your heart and offer praise and thanksgiving to God. Watch and see what He does in your life as a result.
My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing and make music with all my soul. Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. -Psalm 108:1-2
Give thanks to the LORD, call on His name; make known among the nations what He has done. -1 Chronicles 16:8
Confession: I missed the last five days straight of the Grace for Today readings. Guess what? It’s ok. Pick it up again. Keep going. What is wonderful is that Jesus loves me and gives me the desire to know him and make him known. The same is true for you!
Gold star for you if you can name this movie star.
We are reading through Grace for Today. In case you are a youth and are wondering what day it is . . . It’s October 3rd.
