I'm sitting here with one of my kitties on my lap...

And I'm reminded of a stance from the song "Shout to the Lord"... it's I sing for joy at the work of your hands, forever I'll love you, forever I'll stand. Also I think of Everything that has breath, praise the Lord! So I felt led to the Psalms. Let me share Psalm 63 with you. My Bible tell me this is a proclamation of a desire for God's presence, provision, and protection. No matter where we are, our desire should be for Him. Because only He satisfies fully...

"O God, you are my God;
I earnestly search for you.
My soul thirsts for you;
my whole body longs for you
in this parched and weary land
where there is no water.

I have seen you in your sanctuary
and gazed upon your power and glory
Your unfailing love is better than life itself;
how I praise you!

I will praise you as long as I live,
lifting up my hands to you in prayer.
You satisfy me more than the richest feast.
I will praise you with songs of joy.

I lie awake thinking of you,
meditating on you through the night;
because you are my helper,
I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
your strong right hand holds me securely.

But those plotting to destroy me will come to ruin.
They will go down into the depths of the earth.
They will die by the sword
and become the food of jackals.

But the king will rejoice in God.
All who trust in him will praise him,
while liars will be silenced."
