Sunday Blessing: You are there!

PSALM 139 (ESV)

1 O LORD, you have searched me and known me! 
2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. 
3 You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. 
4 Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.
5 You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. 
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it. 
7 Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? 
8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! 
9 If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, 
10 even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. 
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,” 
12 even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you. 
13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. 
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. 
15 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. 
16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. 
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 
18 If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you.
19 Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God! O men of blood, depart from me! 
20 They speak against you with malicious intent; your enemies take your name in vain! 
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD? And do I not loathe those who rise up against you? 
22 I hate them with complete hatred; I count them my enemies. 
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! 
24 And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!

Sunday Blessing: Virtuous Woman

Who can find a virtuous woman?

Proverbs 31: 10- 31

Bible, King James Version

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

 

 

 

 

Justin Timberlake Meets Warby Parker

 

JT x Warby Parker Collection

JT x Warby Parker: Together with Justin Timberlake, Warby Parker designed three limited-edition sunglasses to celebrate “Wave,” a song from his new album, “Man of the Woods.” To commemorate the collaboration, Warby Parker will be making a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, an organization near and dear to Justin.

Epigraph Collection

An epigraph is a literary inscription—the line of poetry or the morsel of philosophy on the opening page of a novel. It’s a small but critical detail that sets the tone for the book. In our case, it’s the subtle yet punchy metal design detail that defines six of our new limited-edition frames. Each pair is made in Italy and starts at $145.

Buy One Give One

 For every pair of frames sold, the “buy a pair, give a pair” program, you can help contribute to a larger cause. To date, Warby Parker has distributed over two million pairs of glasses to people in need.

Sunday Blessing: Love

 Love

by L. Smith

Is love what we do? 

Is love what we say?

Is love the way we look?

Is love the way we play?

Love is in the air

We want to show we care

We bought flowers, jewelry, and candy

Now, we hope everything is dandy.

We say “I love you”every day

We know that it means a lot

But, on this special day

We want to jump and shout!

“I love you”

“I adore you”

“You’re beautiful”

“I enjoy you”

Happy Valentine Dear

All throughout the year!

Love

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
