Grant me the grace this day to be foolish in love.
Let there be no other driving force behind my 
thoughts, words, and actions.
Fill me with You good Spirit;
Let me love with reckless abandon!

In the Name of Jesus I ask this; amen.

The spiderwort show us the first color in early June. My Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme along with basil jalapenos and cucumbers are all in their containers. And I have three varieties of cherry tomatoes in the ground box.

Lord of lords~

Please empower me with Your graces
so that I can resist the temptation to sin -
all manner of sin -
ones I think 'big' as well as ones I think 'not so big'.

Change my heart, so that I 
think like You,
see others like You do,
and see myself as You do.

May Your Name be praised now and forever!

The Lutheran Hymnal #19 "All Praise to God, Who Reigns Above"

I've had this hymn in my heart all night, and been humming/singing it all morning...
Praise our LORD!

"All Praise to God, Who Reigns Above"
by Johann J. Schuetz, 1640-1690

1. All praise to God, who reigns above,
The God of all creation,
The God of wonders, power, and love,
The God of our salvation!
With healing balm my soul He fills,
The God who every sorrow stills,--
To God all praise and glory!

2. What God's almighty power hath made
His gracious mercy keepeth;
By morning dawn or evening shade
His watchful eye ne'er sleepeth;
Within the kingdom of His might
Lo, all is just and all is right,--
To God all praise and glory!

3. I cried to Him in time of need:
Lord God, oh, hear my calling!
For death He gave me life indeed
And kept my feet from falling.
For this my thanks shall endless be;
Oh, thank Him, thank our God, with me,--
To God all praise and glory!

4. The Lord forsaketh not His flock,
His chosen generation;
He is their Refuge and their Rock,
Their Peace and their Salvation.
As with a mother's tender hand
He leads His own, His chosen band,--
To God all praise and glory!

5. Ye who confess Christ's holy name,
To God give praise and glory!
Ye who the Father's power proclaim,
To God give praise and glory!
All idols under foot be trod,
The Lord is God! The Lord is God!
To God all praise and glory!

6. Then come before His presence now
And banish fear and sadness;
To your Redeemer pay your vow
And sing with joy and gladness:
Though great distress my soul befell,
The Lord, my God, did all things well,--
To God all praise and glory!
