When I gaze into the night skies and see the work of Your fingers; The moon and the stars suspended in space. What is man, that You are mindful of him? You have given man a crown of glory and honor, and have made him a little lower than the angels. You have put him in charge of all creation: The beasts of the field, The birds of the air, The fish of the sea. But what is man, that You are mindful of him?
O Lord, our God, the majesty and glory of Your name transcends the earth and fills the heavens. O Lord, our God, little children praise You perfectly, and so would we. Alleluia. The majesty and glory of Your name. Alleluia.
Brightly colored sunsets and starry heavens, majestic mountains and shining seas, and fragrant fields and fresh-cut flowers are not even half as beautiful as a soul who is serving Jesus out of love, through the wear and tear of an ordinary, unpoetic life.

Please keep Freda in your prayers. At Christmastime, she fell and fractured several vertebrae in her back. Pray for healing and strength and enough recovery to go forward with a scheduled knee-replacement surgery.
