I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, *
in the assembly of the upright, in the congregation.
- Great are the deeds of the LORD! *
they are studied by all who delight in them.
- His work is full of majesty and splendor, *
and his righteousness endures for ever.
- He makes his marvelous works to be remembered; *
the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
- He gives food to those who fear him; *
he is ever mindful of his covenant.
- He has shown his people the power of his works *
in giving them the lands of the nations.
- The works of his hands are faithfulness and justice; *
all his commandments are sure.
- They stand fast for ever and ever, *
because they are done in truth and equity.
- He sent redemption to his people;
he commanded his covenant for ever; *
holy and awesome is his Name.
- The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; *
those who act accordingly have a good understanding;
his praise endures for ever.

Bella enjoyed watching and playing a little baseball the other night. She wanted to catch the ball and also tell the players what to do. She listened in on their conversations and had some grooming advice to give. She also checked behind the TV to see where things went occasionally. At the end, she gave the pitcher a high five.
Thankfully, the tv is big enough to watch even while Bella is camped out in front of it.
Enjoy your weekend!

O God, who on the holy mount revealed to chosen witnesses your well-beloved Son, wonderfully transfigured, in raiment white and glistening: Mercifully grant that we, being delivered from the disquietude of this world, may by faith behold the King in his beauty; who with you, O Father, and you, O Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Today is the 7th anniversary of my ordination to the priesthood. What a great ride. Here's to the next seven!

O God, your unfailing providence sustains the world we live in and the life we live: Watch over those, both night and day, who work while others sleep, and grant that we may never forget that our common life depends upon each other's toil; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
