Psalm 19 – A Meditation

 

 

Psalm 19

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
    It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.

The law of the Lord is perfect,
    refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
    making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
    giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
    giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
    enduring forever.
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
    and all of them are righteous.

10 They are more precious than gold,
    than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
    than honey from the honeycomb.
11 By them your servant is warned;
    in keeping them there is great reward.
12 But who can discern their own errors?
    Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant also from willful sins;
    may they not rule over me.
Then I will be blameless,
    innocent of great transgression.

14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
    be pleasing in your sight,
    Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

A Special Grace – 1 Year Later

One year ago, on November 11, 2017, my husband of 36 years went home to be with the Lord. He was a gentle man, the kindest man I have ever known. Bobby, you made it. I look forward to seeing you again. I will never forget you, my friend.

A Special Grace

Oh, the complexities of grief
I lament, I cry deep tears of sorrow
Yet, I hope
and have faith for an eternal tomorrow
I am sad, my head is hung down
Yet, I laugh,
And share joy all around
Yes, I can grieve and still have faith
Yes, I do grieve,
For I have been given
A Special Grace
A special grace which dries my tears
When I cry aloud
A special grace which seals my heart
That lets me know we are not apart
A Special Grace
Given to me from above
A Special Grace
That lets me know
That I am loved.
