the roses now

Thanksgiving is over,
and so are these roses almost.
From carrying them out of the shop
as a big bouquet in my arms,
until tonight on our candlelit table,
they have been gorgeous,
making me smile.
(Bubba is busy making fresh crab stew for our dinner. :)

I read this Psalm this morning.
If you want to praise God, use this....

"Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
Praise Him in the heights!
Praise Him all His angels;
Praise Him all His hosts!
Praise Him sun and moon;
Praise Him all stars of light!
Praise Him highest heavens,
and the waters that are above the heavens!

Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for He commanded and they were created.
He has also established them forever and ever;
He has made a decree which will not pass away.

Praise the Lord from the earth,
Sea monsters and all deeps;
Fire and hail,
Snow and clouds;
Stormy wind, fulfilling His word.
Mountains and all hills;
Fruit trees and all cedars;
Beasts and all cattle;
Creeping things and winged fowl;
Kings of the earth and all peoples;
Princes and all judges of the earth;
Both young men and virgins;
Old men and children,
Let them praise the name of the Lord.

Let them praise the name of the Lord,
For His name alone is exalted;
His glory is above earth and heaven.
Praise the Lord all His godly ones!
Psalm 148: 1 ~ 14

Thank you David for the sermon today.
God's name is above all.
He alone is worthy of praise, and honor, and glory.
Let us remember to
 never use His holy name vainly
 or in a worthless way.
