My soul, now bless thy Maker! Let all within me bless His name
Who maketh thee partaker Of mercies more than thou dar’st claim.
Forget Him not whose meekness Still bears with all thy sin,
Who healeth all thy weakness, Renews thy life within;
Whose grace and care are endless And saved thee through the past;
Who leaves no suff’rer friendless But rights the wronged at last,
But rights the wronged at last.
He shows to man His treasure Of judgment, truth, and righteousness,
His love beyond all measure, His yearning pity o’er distress,
Nor treats us as we merit, But lays His anger by.
The humble, contrite spirit Finds His compassion nigh;
And high as heav’n above us, As break from close of day,
So far, since He doth love us, He puts our sins away,
He puts our sins away.
For as a tender father Hath pity on His children here,
He in His arms will gather All who are His in child-like fear.
He knows how frail our powers Who but from dust are made;
We flourish like the flowers, And even so we fade;
The wind but o’er them passes, And all their bloom is o’er,
We wither like the grasses, Our place knows us no more,
Our place knows us no more.
God’s grace alone endureth, And children’s children yet shall prove
How He with strength assureth The hearts of all that seek His love.
In heav’n is fixed His dwelling, His rule is over all;
Angels, in might excelling, Bright hosts before Him fall.
Praise Him who ever reigneth, All ye who hear His word,
Nor our poor hymns disdaineth
My soul, O bless the LORD;
My soul, O bless the LORD

If I were a work of art, I would be Claude Monet’s Waterlilies.
I am soft and gentle, but very colourful. Although based in reality, I look at the world through a filter of impressions which shape how I see things. Splashes of light help to define my presence and bring an endearing quality.
Which work of art would you be? The Art Test
interestingly, we have a print of this painting hanging in our living room.

i’m pretty sure my last blog there was not just a random thought of the day, but an actual reality. i still feel the same way.
it feels like i’ve taken a step up in maturity, which is strange. because i really didn’t do anything…. i just realized one day that i don’t like to fight anymore.
i like asking questions.
