We are well on our way across the country for our farewell tour. We’ve visited friends in Santa Barbara, Steve’s son in Los Angeles, and my nephews in Phoenix. Already we’ve delighted in seeing the gorgeous azure coastline, dramatic mountains and canyons, and a vivid desert sunset. God could have made the world flat, black and white, and boring. Instead, He gave us beauty and variety, in nature and in people. I’m thankful for that. Before we begin our Thanksgiving feast with my parents in Arizona, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on God’s goodness and greatness.
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before Him with thanksgiving
and extol Him with music and song.
For the LORD is the great God,
the great King above all gods.
In His hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to Him.
The sea is His, for He made it,
and His hands formed the dry land.
Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the LORD our Maker;
for He is our God
and we are the people of His pasture,
the flock under His care.
