Mood: don't ask
I've been lying around all day today. It seems that I have caught the same flu bug that Joshua caught. Not much to do but sleep and read. I've been reading a great biography of Iris Blue called Iris: Trophy of Grace. It's a book that I received from the First Wild Card book tour folks. The official review isn't due until early March and, believe me, I will be saying a lot about this fantastic book. In the meantime, here is a bit of scripture that was included in one of the chapters. I won't go into detail about why it was there or what the chapter is about, I'm just going to share it as is. It spoke to me again today as it has on many an occasion before.
Psalm 139For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.
1 You have searched me, LORD,
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you, LORD, know it completely.
5 You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
