Honor


Heaven is declaring God’s glory; 
the sky is proclaiming his handiwork.
One day gushes the news to the next, 
and one night informs another what needs to be known.
Of course, there’s no speech, no words—
their voices can’t be heard—
but their sound extends throughout the world; 
their words reach the ends of the earth.

Father, mother, those placed in earthly authority
all these command, deserve

Mention my work, thank me
I reply that I am humbled to receive

Asked to contribute, help, serve
my response is that I would be 

And yet, as I gaze, jaw slack 
at all He Is,Was,Will Be
within me, around me
every speck, every breath of being
I can do nothing
but give all honor to Him



Joining Peter and the gang talking about honor

The poem is great--I will be reading that again--

Love the picture and Psalm 19--

I memorized that chapter a couple of years ago--only the second chapter I have ever memorized--one of my favorites--

HONOR--I join you in honoring Him!

After all is said and done, honoring our Lord is the most important thing. Great post and thoughts here.
