so i will bless Thee~

I was reminded this morning of a Psalm I have long loved. I have mostly heard it in a variation of two different songs, so it's hard for me to actually read it, I hear it in song, but nevertheless, it brought a smile, and peace, and encouragement to my heart this morning.

O God, You are my God;
Earnestly I seek You;
My soul thirsts for You;
My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land
Where there is no water.
I have seen You in the sanctuary,
and beheld Your power and Your glory.
Because Your love is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.
Thus I will bless You while I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with the richest of foods,
with singing lips my mouth will praise You.

On my bed I remember You;
I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because You are my help,
I sing in the shadow of Your wings.

My soul clings to you;
Your right hand upholds me.
Psalm 63:1-8

I have a feeling this one's going to be through my head today.

Happy Thursday!

(Do any of you guys around here know if Todd's version of this is on cd anywhere?

Tod Bell's version can be found on Welcome Mat.

"How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about arithmetic, and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness." ~GK Chesterton
