Psalm 63

The Thirsting Soul Satisfied in God.
A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

    O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly;
         My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You,
         In a dry and weary land where there is no water. 
    

Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary,
         To see Your power and Your glory. 
    

Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
         My lips will praise You.
    

So I will bless You as long as I live;
         I will lift up my hands in Your name. 
    

My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
         And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips. 
    

When I remember You on my bed,
         I meditate on You in the night watches, 
    

For You have been my help,
         And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy. 
    

My soul clings to You;
         Your right hand upholds me. 
    

But those who seek my life to destroy it,
         Will go into the depths of the earth. 
    

They will be delivered over to the power of the sword;
         They will be a prey for foxes. 
   

But the king will rejoice in God;
         Everyone who swears by Him will glory,
         For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.

About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!
