Psalm 115:14, 15  “May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” (NLT)

I freely confess, I joyfully declare, I am among the most blessed men who has ever lived. 

This week, our grandson learned to ride a horse. He may be eighteen years old, but he is demonstrating one of life’s most beneficial lessons: Never be afraid to learn something new or to try something wonderful for the first time.

Our curly-haired blonde and soon-to-be four-year-old illuminated every space she inhabited. We get to spend next weekend celebrating 1,460 days of life and counting.

We very much enjoyed our soon-to-be one-year-old granddaughter this week. She joined me each morning as we worshiped God together. The moon spoke its “Good Day” as it slipped away into the far edge of the sea just as the sun declared to all the sleepyheads on our side of the world, “Good morning!”

Our first hour of the glorious mornings was filled with wonder. We talked and sang, played and cuddled. We enjoyed allowing the others their extended rest.

These verses came to full expression.

The Maker of Heaven and Earth blessed us. He blesses us still. 

We will welcome home our dogs this morning before we leave for worship. What a reunion that will be! What a nap they will need today after a week at the kennel! Ollie will have kept everyone in line. Millie will have looked for a quiet spot to be alone without much success until now. Her bathtub behind the shower curtain awaits. 

Worship will be full of fresh memories to thank God for. It will be filled with overflowing hearts of gratitude for daily blessings. It will provide space and time to celebrate all the good things God has blessed us with. 

After a week where God did some of his most creative work, we are home celebrating all these verses mention. Our children, grandchildren, and God’s good earth fill our hearts with gratitude and joy. How could we not worship? How could we not sing praise?

I will sing and celebrate our Father in heaven who gives us loved ones, beautiful spaces, and a place to call home.

Our Father, thank you for family. Thank you for children, grandchildren, and beautiful places to share with them now and forever. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 119:114

Psalm 119:114 You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.

Daily D – Jonah 4:2-3

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”

Daily D – Psalm 115:14-15

Psalm 115:14, 15 May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Daily D – Joel 2:12-13

Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”

Daily D – Hosea 14:8-9

Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
