I will remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands

failures, disillusionments, and fantasies, and think of the hand life has dealt them.
It is better to remember the past as David did, by contemplating the good that God has done, to
“meditate on all [His] works…and consider what [His] hands have done” (Psalm143: 5). As we

are the memories that foster the highest good. They evoke a deep longing for more of God and
more of His tender care. They transform the past into a place of familiarity and fellowship with
I heard a story about an elderly woman who would sit in silence for hours in her rocking chair,
hands folded in her lap, eyes gazing off into the far distance. One day her daughter asked,
“Mother, what do you think about when you sit there so quietly?” Her mother replied softly with
a twinkle in her eye, “That’s just between Jesus and me.”
I pray that our memories and meditations would draw us in to His Presence.

Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day. It will always be useful to read through articles from other writers and use a little something from other websites.
I was pretty pleased to discover this web site. I want to to thank you for your time for this fantastic read!! I definitely really liked every bit of it and I have you book marked to see new things on your web site.
A motivating discussion is worth comment. I believe that you ought to write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but generally people do not talk about such issues. To the next! All the best!!
