The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.

Is that from Numbers too? I've been thinking of dragging out my Bible to see if there's anything around that Aaronic Benediction that I could add to my setting of it!

Have no fear friends, God sees all. There are no secrets hidden from Him.

All who live shall give an account for their deeds.

No matter how hard you try, you aren't able to add to or take away from God's plan.

His Justice will prevail!

Praise be to God.

For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’
(Isa. 41: 13)

But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name be joyful in You.
(Ps. 5: 11)

God is good. He has blessed me beyond measure, he has provided for my every need.

He certainly has gone before me and has a plan. Things and circumstances that made no sense at all months and or years ago make perfect sense now. Nothing happens without his knowledge or say so.

"Cast all your care on Him because he cares for you"

Thank Him with me!

psalm 30

1 I will exalt you, O Lord,
for you lifted me out of the depths
and did not let my enemies gloat over me.

2 O Lord my God, I called to you for help
and you healed me.

3 O Lord, you brought me up from the grave;
you spared me from going down into the pit.

4 Sing to the Lord, you saints of his;
praise his holy name.

5 For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may remain for a night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.


6 When I felt secure, I said,
“I will never be shaken.”

7 O Lord, when you favored me,
you made my mountain stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
I was dismayed.

8 To you, O Lord, I called;
to the Lord I cried for mercy:

9 “What gain is there in my destruction,
in my going down into the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it proclaim your faithfulness?

10 Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me;
O Lord, be my help.”

11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,

12 that my heart may sing to you and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.

God is good

Best Thanksgiving ever for me, I'm at peace.

I might start liking holidays after all.

May Jesus bless those who are hurting.
