what I learned today

I have attempted to get clear through the Psalms a couple of times in the past without success. So I wasn't sure I had every read the last of the Psalms, today I began at the end and started to work backward.

I sat at a beautiful location in our area called Kingwood Center, for those readers not from Mansfield. This 47 acre estate opened as a public garden in 1953, following the original owners death. It's grounds are magnificent, a perfect get-away where I love to sit and read whenever I get the chance.

Today as I read Psalms 147...
4 He determines the number of the stars;
he gives to all of them their names.
5 Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;
his understanding is beyond measure.
6 The Lord lifts up the humble;
he casts the wicked to the ground.
7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
make melody to our God on the lyre!
8 He covers the heavens with clouds;
he prepares rain for the earth;
he makes grass grow on the hills.

As I read and looked around me, I had to take pictures as God made the Psalms come alive all around me! ...."He covers the Earth with clouds"...I plan to continue reading the Psalms backwards...It will probably get my theology all out of whack. I think God will understand!
