Seventh Week of Ordinary Time, Monday, July 17, 2023
Loving Divine Family,
There is no God like you, O Jehovah. We sing praises to you as we gather in your sacred prayer space–in your beautiful spaces–beside quiet waters. We have wandered in the wilderness and seen the paths of foolish and wicked people. We have dipped our toes in their dirty pools; we drank from their bitter wells. But we have returned to you; your loving face provided light for our paths.
We proclaim your love, generosity, and mercy. Singing praises to you brings us joy and makes the work and burdens light. Your works are amazing; we know that full well. Thank you, we flourish and grow in you. Thank you, in old age, we continue to bear fruit, stay fresh, and are useful. We love you, LORD.
I celebrate my return to you today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…
We rejoice in your provisions, Loving LORD. Your ways are merciful and pure. We see your works–the mighty deeds you have made known to us. Ancient lands and ancestors sing of your ways. We join them in songs of thanksgiving to you.
With joy, we praise you!
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
