From today’s ‘official’ Bible reading selections:

5 Who is like the LORD our God,

       the One who sits enthroned on high,

6 who stoops down to look

       on the heavens and the earth?

7 He raises the poor from the dust

       and lifts the needy from the ash


8 he seats them with princes,

       with the princes of their people.

9 He settles the barren woman in her


       as a happy mother of children.

   Praise the LORD.

And, a picture of the Maldives. Hope everyone’s having a good day.


Pedro the Lion

The sun shines

And leaves blow

And my hope like Autumn

Is turning brown

And I know it seems like

I’m always falling down

But it does not matter to me, although it seems like it should

It’s because I know I’m understood when I hear Him say:

“Rest in me, little David and dry all your tears, you can lay down your armor and have no fear cause I’m always here when you’re tired of running, and I’m all the strength that you need.”

It’s up hill

Both ways

Tomorrow I swear

I won’t act this way

And I know it seems like

That is what I always say

You know I want to be like Jesus

But it seems so very far away

And when will I learn to obey?
