When I Consider...

Psalm 90:1-12
A Prayer of Moses the man of God.

1 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.
4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.
6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.
8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.
10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
11 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.
12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

This picture was taken at the Grand Canyon on October 28, 2007 while Ben & I were on our honeymoon. When we were there, a controlled burn had gotten out of hand, and a smoky haze covered the canyon. I am learning to use my photo editing software, and I discovered that I could still pull the colors out of this picture. Sure, I am not a professional photographer, but it is pretty, isn't it? It made me think of this Psalm. "When I consider the works of Thy hands...what is man that Thou thinkest on him, who is so unworthy of Thy love?" (Ron Hamilton)
