I worked myself into quite a state. I'm good at that. Leave me alone with my thoughts and I can go ballistic.
I had to breathe peace this afternoon. The objects of beauty in this home are our hearts, beating with love for this Christmas babe, the Lord Jesus Christ. Tonight I am sneaking away to bed early, with a cuppa and my Bible. I need to reorient my heart; I'm seeking those lovely things which the Lord considers the most glorious of all. Psalm 96:9 says, "Worship the LORD in holy attire." Or it could say, "Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness." Or, as the Book of Psalms for Singing says, "In beautiful and holy robes bring worship to the LORD." Or from the Scottish Metrical Psalter of 1650:
Give ye the glory to the Lord that to his name is due; Come ye into his courts, and bring an offering with you.
In beauty of his holiness, O do the Lord adore; Likewise let all the earth throughout tremble his face before.
