As High As The Heavens...

>> 7.30.2011

There's been LOTS around me that is new, these days, and I've wanted to share a few things with you for a few weeks now but just haven't gotten to it!  When we start school in two more days, we're going to start with a scavenger hunt (dad included!) around the rural towns in which we now live.  We hope to give the kids -- well, just the olders -- a sense of where they live in relation to their new surroundings.  I'll be sure to take some pics of that, but I thought I'd share a few today from around our home.  (My photog disclaimer: These are completely uneditted, some should have been for viewing effect-- but I'm giving it to ya live -- well, as "live" as blogging gets!)

The sun setting above the corn just in front and to the west of our house.

Our lovely fence line, complete with a spectacular view of God's heavens.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits,
who forgives all your iniguity, who heals all your disease,
who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s…
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear Him;
as far as the east is from the west, so far does He remove our transgressions from us. 
As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him. 
For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust…
The steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him,
and his righteousness to children’s children,
to those who keep His covenant and remember to do His commandments…
Bless the Lord, all his host, His ministers, who do his will!
Bless the Lord, all His works, in places of His dominion. 
Bless the Lord, O my soul! 
(various verses from Psalm 103)

A final pic, for those family following, this ONE of our beloved "climbing trees".  These kids are "in heaven" climbing, and I'm "in heaven" just admiring GOD'S HEAVENS every evening of our new rural life.

May you be able to take time today to praise our Lord and Savior for the beauty He's putting in your life -- even if it's coming in the form of "ashes".
