S Have we forgotten our Maker?

"O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.

For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand...." Psalm 95:1-7a Continue Reading »
