On Abundance and Appreciation

Lord, how manifold are thy works;

we all have eyes to see.

The earth is full of thy riches;

our hearts sing praise to thee.

Thou touchest the hills and they smoke;

in thy light, shadows flee.

Our meditations shall be sweet;

our joyful spirits, free.

O Lord, how manifold are thy works!
in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.
I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live:
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord.

Psalms 104:24, 32, 34

Lovely post for A. Two very important A-words 'Abundance and Appreciation' from a source that is the source of everything that is good. (Great theme for Autumn, Harvest and Thanksgiving.)
Best wishes & blessings,

Sue....This is a beautiful and very touching post. The photos add so much to the words. I read Simple Abundance, so I really related to it. I

I love the layout of your blog and the colors you used. It is so easy to follow and pleasant to view.

Thanks for stopping by my Buttons for Baga and commenting on my A for Allergies. I loved the idea that your son might have used his “Big A’s” as an excuse to avoid a little bit of work....sounds pretty normal to me. And yes, I would gladly take on more chores to be rid of the things.

Hugs,
Genie

I am sort of troubled tonight over family business (which is not for wimps). This reminded me to stop and just praise God. I particularly loved the photo of the reflections in the water....about meditation. Did you take that photo?

karen said...
