    This psalm starts off exactly how I am feeling... The psalmist says, "my heart is fixed". O LORD, whatever my troubles may be, no matter how much pain is in my life. Let me be focused, LET MY HEART ALWAYS BE FIXED ON YOU.
    May you always be my priority.

    Thank you JESUS for watching over us all night long.. YOUR angel encamped around our bed and kept us safe from harm. Then YOU touched us with a finger of LOVE this am. To see a day we have never seen before. We are forever grateful and humble. Bless our family, friends, neighbors, government, economy and allow your peace to dwell throughout the lands. You alone know our needs and desires. AMEN
