pic & poem

Pic n Poem

May 27, 2013

Imac chose "pic n poem" for this week's Headbanger's theme.  Check out my  pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing  Guy, Katney, Imac and Lew.

Don't you just love the manner in which King David spoke of God's glory in creation?  Here, the Psalmist is looking at the sky, but gives special attention to the sun.  I selected this image for my header because it allowed me to draw the focus indirectly towards the sun and still leave lots of room for the text.  I hope you can see the text there, but if you cannot, I will repeat it here below.

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

  The heavens declare the glory of God,
    and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
2 Day to day pours out speech,
    and night to night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words,
    whose voice is not heard.
4 Their voice goes out through all the earth,
    and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
5     which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
    and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
    and its circuit to the end of them,
    and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
Psalm 19:1-6 (ESV)

Well chosen. And I like the picture particularly, since it is a glorious sunset, not one of those spectacular sunset images you see that would grace the cover of, say, Arizona Highways, but one of the everyday ones. God gives us one every day, and each is unique.

Beautiful Psalm...and I wish I could sing it in a beautiful voice. Since I can't, I proclaim it just as David did. How glorious is our Lord!!
Thank you for the Psalm and the photograph. Both are beautiful, my friend. God paints the prettiest pictures ever!!!
Hugs and smiles,
