Life Inside a Snow Globe

13 Feb

Good Morning Friends, I hope you are safe and warm. Here it looks like I woke up in the middle of a snow globe and someone keeps shaking it. Yet, I am warm and dry and do not have to go anywhere AND there is enough food in our house to last for weeks; a typical grandma house.

The psalm for the day is one more praise song that centers on family. It is kind of like the Hallmark greeting card of the psalms.

128 1-2 All you who fear God, how blessed you are!
how happily you walk on his smooth straight road!
You worked hard and deserve all you’ve got coming.
Enjoy the blessing! Revel in the goodness!

Your wife will bear children as a vine bears grapes,
your household lush as a vineyard,
The children around your table
as fresh and promising as young olive shoots.
Stand in awe of God’s Yes.
Oh, how he blesses the one who fears God!

Enjoy the good life in Jerusalem
every day of your life.
And enjoy your grandchildren.
Peace to Israel!

The psalm repeat again; God, good work, family; what more could one want in life.

Take a moment to consider people who seem very content, centered, god-filled. Do those people look like this picture. Blessed for praising God, working hard and enjoying the family they have in this world. There is an old, old song that sometimes runs through my head, Count your many blessings, count them one by one, count your many blessing see what God has done.. I think that is true. If we can see the blessing in our lives, our lives become blessings for others.

I hope this day you enjoy your millennia old greeting card and the blessings God shares with you today.
