The Earth is the Lord's


Psalm 24:1-2
The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
for he founded it on the seas
and established it on the waters.

My husband, Danny, and I return recently from a brief, but lovely, few days in Jekyll Island, Georgia.  Today, I invite you, through Danny's marvelous photos and the Psalms, to celebrate and wonder at this marvelous creation God has established for us.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Psalm 19:1










How many are your works, Lord!
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
Psalm 104:24











Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.
Psalm 57:11

My prayer is that these words from Psalms and the pictures bless you today, and remind you to give God thanks for all His wonders.

Amen!

    1. How great, indeed, is our amazing God, Pamela! With the exception of the mountains, I think the seacoast is the best place to capture sunrises and sunsets. Danny has it down pat!

  11. Martha, Danny's photos are both inspiring and breathtaking! For sure we can see the work of the Lord in images such as his. The ones of the sunset allow us to see how the end of a day, good or bad, paves the way for a new tomorrow. Thank you for your visit to my blog!
