1 Keep me safe, my God,
for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord;
apart from you I have no good thing.”
3 I say of the holy people who are in the land,
“They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”
4 Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more.
I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods
or take up their names on my lips.
5 LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I keep my eyes always on the LORD.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,
10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
nor will you let your faithful one see decay.
11 You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand. (Psalm 16)

This wide, wide world
I love, each week, taking a peek at a another's gratitude list. I love that Father God works His beauty and love into my week... and at the same time He works into another's, too. He does intimately care about me, just me. AND, He does absolutely care about others... lots and lots and lots of others. This does my heart good.
...to know His intimate, daily care and grace in my own life. And, to know that He is much, much, much bigger than me. His care is timeless, nation-less, and beyond anything I can ever know or imagine. This does my heart good.
So, I peeked today at another's counting to 1,000. And, it did my heart good.
Go! Take a peek, too. www.aholyexperience.com. It is fun to see His loving, grace-filled hand all over this wide, wide world.
