From the Rising of the Sun (17 Days Until the “Birth” of Jesus)

<%image(20051208-rising sun.jpg|432|165|rising sun)%>

Blessed be the name of the LORD
from this time forth and forevermore!
From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the LORD is to be praised!
The LORD is high above all nations,
and his glory above the heavens!
Psalm 113:2-4 (ESV)

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.”
Lamentations 3:22-24 (ESV)
