All Creation Praise the Lord

 Bridger marveling at God's glorious sunrise

Hi friends,
I posted this photo on Instagram yesterday for a #throwbackthursday photo. Vee asked me if I had it framed. Actually, no, it was still in digital format because a) I'm terribly remiss in getting my photos actually printed on paper and b) because I took this photo in the summer of 2006. Since at the time I had a primitive digital camera, it is a small file size. So, because it looks far better on the computer than printed on paper, I decided to post it today. But just for the record, I did print it out as a 4x6. At least I have that if the grid should go down. :-)

This photo is such a great reminder to me that God, the source of all being, delights in his creatures giving him praise. If we look at the order of creation, it is obvious that all creation is to be finally led by human beings in giving right praise to our Creator. That is our vocation, our delight, and what brings us deep down joy.

 Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
    praise him in the heights! 
 Praise him, all his angels;
    praise him, all his host!
 Praise him, sun and moon;
    praise him, all you shining stars! 
 Praise him, you highest heavens,
    and you waters above the heavens!
 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for he commanded and they were created. 
 He established them forever and ever;
    he fixed their bounds, which cannot be passed.
 Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you sea monsters and all deeps, 
 fire and hail, snow and frost,
    stormy wind fulfilling his command!
 Mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars! 
 Wild animals and all cattle,
    creeping things and flying birds!
 Kings of the earth and all peoples,
    princes and all rulers of the earth! 
 Young men and women alike,
    old and young together!
 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    his glory is above earth and heaven. 
 He has raised up a horn for his people,
    praise for all his faithful,
    for the people of Israel who are close to him.
Praise the Lord!
Psalm 148 

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

What a wonderful spot in the blogworld this is.

Judy, Bridger really was pretty special (and that is coming from someone who has never been "a dog person"). Can't imagine what unbelievers think about whenever they are marveling at all the wonders of creation. Am so hoping Tommy and Smokey's adoption/rehoming next month goes smoothly. So sweet of you to postpone the floor replacement until then.

Jan said...

Thank you so much for this post. In difficult times, it's easy to forget everything that God has done and is doing for us and that we especially need to praise Him when it seems the hardest. I needed this today!

Sandra said...

that photo is truly amazing, the sky and Bridger admiring it. it does say Gloria! Gloria!

Michelle said...

You should frame that photo. It is excellent.

I caught my breath when I saw that photo of Bridger and the sunrise. Just glorious. I know you miss him. Beautiful post. Beautiful.

Cheryl said...

It does bring joy to give Him praise!! Love the words from the Psalm that you've shared here today . . . and love your photographic capture of the glory of creation!

Vee said...

All of Creation...yes, and if people won’t praise Him, even the rocks will cry out. There is a special place of joy in the center of praising Him. Time is forgotten, outside prssures and concerns fade away...

Love this photo and I am so glad that you printed off a 4 by 6 at least. 😊
