How good it is to sing praises to our God,
how pleasant and fitting to praise him!
Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
make music to our God on the harp.
He covers the sky with clouds;
he supplies the earth with rain
and makes grass grow on the hills.
He provides food for the cattle
and for the young ravens when they call.
His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his delight in the legs of a man;
the LORD delights in those who fear him,
who put their hope in his unfailing love.
Psalm 147:1, 7-11
Praises from this week and last
how gratitude changes complaint to both compliment and complement

a morning nature walk
following a big, fat caterpillar up the bird bath
a spider in the corner
a dragonfly who seems to be observing the observers
a lizard most suspicious
a pollinating bee
discovering a small caterpillar on green leaves
checking back to see the caterpillar turned chrysalis

our boy flying his most recent paper airplane
the way children forgive- quickly and completely
hearing her say, "Hurry! Come look: 7-5=2" (the clock says 7:52)
hearing him say, "1-2-3-4 my favorite time!"
them saying "Please, one more chapter"
him saying, "Mommy, can I have one more hug?"
