With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Morning & Afternoon

Morning & Afternoon

When the view from your kitchen window looks like this...

You have to do two things.
Praise God for the breathtaking work of his hands
then grab your camera and run outside.
 
 
 
 
 
 
still roses on the Knock-Out bush 
Psalm 8
For the director of music. A psalm of David.
LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
above the heavens.
From the lips of children and infants
you have ordained praise
because of your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?
You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.
You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
you put everything under his feet:
all flocks and herds,
and the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air,
and the fish of the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.
LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

One of my favorite psalms..we memorized it as kids. I have been enjoying the richness of fall this year --- the colors seem more spectacular than usual! A lovely view out your window. I think kitchen windows are the most important of all in the house!

What beautiful pictures. At times I am overwhelmed at the beauty that the Lord has created. Beautiful Psalm to start the morning right! Enjoy your day!

With a view like yours, I would be at the kitchen sink all day long.

Psalm 8 is so beautiful and reminds me that the God of the universe, the creator of all this beauty considers me to be valuable.

How gorgeous! I would have dish pan hands for sure because I wouldn't want to leave this spot! We don't have many changing leaf colors around here! Love that Psalm too!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh the blessings from a kitchen window! You shared in such a beautiful way, that it just touched my day in a special way. Your photography and the sharing of the Psalms 8, inspired me, and I am leaving with a song in my heart. Thank you!
