The heavens proclaim the glory of God.Â The skies display his craftsmanship.Â Day after day they continue to speak;Â night after night they make him known. . . .Â The sun bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after his wedding. It rejoices like a great athlete eager to run the race.Â The sun rises at one end of the heavensÂ and follows its course to the other end.Â Nothing can hide from its heat. — Psalm 19:1-2, 5-6

How do you respond to the glory of GodÂ by which you are surrounded as you make your way to campus, around campus, in your academicÂ endeavors . . . living moving, breathing, thinking, loving, righteouslyÂ Deploying Vocational PowerÂ for the common good in a body “fearfully and wonderfully” knit together “in the image of God” in your mother’s womb?
Today (and each and every day), I encourage you to join me in taking time to observe God’s “craftsmanship.”Â I have found starting this practice first thing in the morning leads to a day framed by (and many times filled by) praise, thanksgiving, and the longing to invite others to “see” God at work through the lens of His WordÂ which isÂ more desirable than gold,Â even the finest gold . . . .Â sweeter than honey,Â even honey dripping from the combÂ (Psalm 19:10)! Come, take, eat, and enjoy.
