Wonder

Took this a few weeks back on my way to work... The contrast was simply amazing -- remarkable brighter than this iPhone-snapped picture shows. I've never a seen a rainbow that just shimmered like this.

This is over by the Tacoma Narrows bridge on SR-16, headed North at about 6:40am.

O Lord, our Lord,

how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory above the heavens.

Out of the mouth of babies and infants,

you have established strength because of your foes,

to still the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,

the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,

what is man that you are mindful of him,

and the son of man that you care for him?

Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings

and crowned him with glory and honor.

You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;

you have put all things under his feet,

all sheep and oxen,

and also the beasts of the field,

the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,

whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

O Lord, our Lord,

how majestic is your name in all the earth!


Psalm 8, ESV

25Jan/110

Psalm 119.9-16

How can a young man keep his way pure?
  By guarding it according to your word.
With my whole heart I seek you;
  let me not wander from your commandments!
I have stored up your word in my heart,
  that I might not sin against you.
Blessed are you, O Lord;
  teach me your statutes!
With my lips I declare
  all the rules of your mouth.
In the way of your testimonies I delight
  as much as in all riches.
I will meditate on your precepts
  and fix my eyes on your ways.
I will delight in your statutes;
  I will not forget your word.
