Word Art Wednesday #77

Hi Everyone,

I want to thank you all for taking the time to visit my blog.  Your wonderful comments are such a blessing to me. 

Today's word art comes from the Book of Psalms...

Psalm 103 is a hymn to God's love and compassion towards his people. The first few verses of the Psalm celebrate the personal benefits we receive as children of God.  And just what are these blessings?
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.
                                                                                                                Psalm 103:3-5

God is our loving father who delights in blessing his children.  I'm so glad that I'm a daughter of the King!!!

For my layout I used a photo of myself that I took during an early morning walk while I was at our church's annual women's retreat a couple weeks ago.   Being out alone, in the quiet of the early morning, is the perfect opportunity to reflect on all of God's blessings.  It's the perfect time to "Be still and know that I am God" Psalm 46:10.  And be thankful!!!
