Psalm 103

Praise the Lord, my soul;
    all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
    and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
    and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The Lord works righteousness
    and justice for all the oppressed.

He made known his ways to Moses,
    his deeds to the people of Israel:
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
    slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
    nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
    or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13 As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
    he remembers that we are dust.
15 The life of mortals is like grass,
    they flourish like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
    and its place remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
    the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
    and his righteousness with their children’s children—
18 with those who keep his covenant
    and remember to obey his precepts.

19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
    and his kingdom rules over all.

20 Praise the Lord, you his angels,
    you mighty ones who do his bidding,
    who obey his word.
21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,
    you his servants who do his will.
22 Praise the Lord, all his works
    everywhere in his dominion.

Praise the Lord, my soul.

Operation Christmas Child Update

A first grader brought coloring books and band aids.

A church member brought a bag of toys.

One of David’s cousins gave me some money for OCC.

James Rimes turned in a second batch of pencils he has sharpened and took more to sharpen. New pencils are hard to sharpen the first time, so this helps the children when they get their boxes.

The church received flashlights and extra batteries that had been ordered for us.

David and I found a sale this week and bought mini erasers, stickers, socks, bracelets, a couple stuffed animals, etc.

David and I were able to make 150 cross necklaces for the older boys.

We have been blessed. We never know what God is going to bless us with next. It’s exciting to see what He is doing for the “shoeboxes”.

We have a flexible schedule. If you have a couple hours to give, we would love to have you participate. It is so exciting to see what God is doing so many children will have an opportunity to learn about Jesus!

Hoping to see you at Saturday’s workshop from 9-Noon. We love “Willing Hands”.
