Fall is Showing Off God's Glory!

My heart is so full of thanks for God's creation during the fall. It just seems to shout out His greatness! Let me share some glimpses of fall that our family has enjoyed, and reflect on some of the words of Psalm 104.

Psalm 104

1 Praise the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.

2 He wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent

3 and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.

4 He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants.

5 He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.

12 The birds of the air nest by the waters; they sing among the branches.

13 He waters the mountains from his upper chambers; the earth is satisfied by the fruit of his work.

14 He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for man to cultivate— bringing forth food from the earth:

15 wine that gladdens the heart of man, oil to make his face shine, and bread that sustains his heart.

16 The trees of the LORD are well watered, the cedars of Lebanon that he planted.

17 There the birds make their nests; the stork has its home in the pine trees.

19 The moon marks off the seasons, and the sun knows when to go down.

24 How many are your works, O LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.

27 These all look to you to give them their food at the proper time.

28 When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.

31 May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the LORD rejoice in his works-

32 he who looks at the earth, and it trembles, who touches the mountains, and they smoke.

33 I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

34 May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the LORD.

Praying that you will be captivated by God's glory as you watch the seasons unfold and turn this weekend!

Gorgeous pictures! I love that Psalm - I can't help but hear Fernando Ortega singing in my head when I start reading it. :)
