hi chrono peeps :)

I'm not a huge fan of poetry, prose, etc. so Psalm is a bit difficult for me to connect with but I liked the Psalms we've been reading the last 2 days.

My fav verse from today's reading: "Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you... God is the strength of my heart..." Psalm 73:25-26.

I liked Psalm 15 (from yest's reading) cuz it describes some of the characteristics of righteousness...
1) doing what's right
2) speaking the truth (from the heart, e.g. with love)
3) treating people right
4) honoring God's people
5) having integrity (keeping my words even if it hurts)
6) being generous

And I recognize verses 5-6 from Psalm 36 cuz Third Day integrated them in their song (below). "Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep."

Check out the video, I enjoyed it cuz we get to see some of the great characters we read about (awww I miss them sorta hehe). See if you recognize them all? I'll give you a lil start, the first person shown is good ol Abraham (but I had imagined Isaac to be younger? hmmm).

Love ya :)

That's interesting, I've seen you write poetry on Dom's facebook page, you are quite good at it so I'm suprise you're not into it. hehe

tera, i also enjoy those passages you mentioned.
i even sent the same passage in psalm 36 to my bible talk. it is such an encouraging scripture on God's love, faithfulness and righteousness. i could meditate on it all day long. :)

Wow! that was so awesome. I love Third Day and particularly this song. So well-written...of's from the Best Songwriter:) Thanks for finding and posting this Tera. btw, Psalm 15 is now one of my favorite Psalms after reading Chrono again this year. Very glad to have come accross it and made me think of how to treat others that I may be able to enjoy and find peace in the promise "He who does these things will never be shaken." I am so shaken easily. That's coz, I have MUCH to grow in my love for God, people and his word still. Amen, God is in control...and his love reaches to the heavens...I'll hold on to these as well to keep me going. Thanks again for all your love esp in serving in the Chrono Bible. Great job!
