Dawn

Who shut within doors the sea,

when it burst forth from the womb,

When I made the clouds its garment

and thick darkness its swaddling bands?

When I set limits for it

and fastened the bar of its door,

And said: Thus far shall you come but no farther,

and here shall your proud waves stop?

Have you ever in your lifetime commanded the morning

and shown the dawn its place

For taking hold of the ends of the earth,

till the wicked are shaken from it?

Job 38:8-13

Give Thanks

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. To Him who made the heavens with skill, For His lovingkindness is everlasting; To Him who spread out the earth above the waters, For His lovingkindness is everlasting; To Him who made the great lights, For His lovingkindness is everlasting: The sun to rule by day, For His lovingkindness is everlasting, The moon and stars to rule by night, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. Psalm 136:1,5-9

Home Again

I haven’t been talking much about home, which is my word for the year. Going away for a few days definitely gives you a new perspective on home. Over time, it is very easy to lose an appreciation for things that have become very familiar. Like this view, from the drive to my usual Saturday morning run.
