Psalm 139 +

Ps 139:1-16

O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD.
You hem me in--behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me," even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. (NIV)

Just wanted to share that with you tonight for no special reason. Reading past posts in November.

I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted. Joh 42:2

Hey, Snodgrasses:
Still recovering in our household from Mike's 2 weeks out of work...I've been "under it" shouldering his load here at home, too! NO load compared to what you two have been thru since November. Hopefully he'll be up to gong back in to work tomorr+o6w696969+9636995+...hmmm...little addition from the 10 1/2 month old who is sitting at my ankles yelling, "na, na, na, na!" Anyhoo: I was saying: going back to work tomorrow. I absolutely LOVED the picture of the boys highlighed by the sunset on the beach. I got a bit teary, I don't mind saying! You love those "from behind" photos, don't you, Kate? It reminds me of the one of Dave walking hand in hand with the Carter & Cole that you have framed in the family room. WONDERFUL memories! And a safe way to take a photo, too, since at their age, they're into the cheesy smile or not looking at the camera or hamming it up when you want them to be serious or sticking their tongue out or something equally amusing. Was THAT a run-on sentence or WHAT? Our English teachers would be horrified! Oh, well, what's a Sunday without a little poor grammar? Love you all!
Hugs! Laura

Another time I'll have to tell you about the message at my church this weekend...REALLY cool...about Joshua 3:5...Anyway, gotta get to bed so I can function tomorrow at work.
Oh, Aimee (Wiggers) Kuzemka says "Hi!" She tried to post something last week, but couldn't get it to work for some reason.
Well lookie there--I managed to write a big one anyway! You can usually count on me to be a tad verbose, even when I try not to. :)
Love ya!
