I just finished the book of Psalms (yes, I am very late). What a powerful note this book ends on! “Praise the Lord!” over and over, for different people and different things and in different ways; but all with the same theme. I am sitting in the woods in Ohio and I am praising the Lord. I am surrounded by bird noises (praise God the music across the way stopped). The trees are beautiful and green, the air is cool. My neighbors are friendly. The trip itself was funded as a blessing from God. I have days of peace and quiet, writing, reading, training, and hiking ahead, and a wonderful family and church awaiting my return. Praise the Lord!
