Oh God thou art my God, early will I seek thee, my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee  in a  dry and thirsty land where no water is

To see thy power and thy glory so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary

Because thy loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee

Thus will I bless thee while I live, I will lift up my hands in thy name

My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips

When I remember thee upon my bed and meditate on thee  in the night watches

Because thy has been my help therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice

My soul followeth  hard after thee thy right hand upholdeth me

(PSALMS 63:1-8)

These few verses pretty much sums it up that we should think about him morning, noon and night, if you woke in your right mind, you should praise him before your feet hit the floor for it was his mercy that granted you another day, were you able to take your own self to the bathroom, as you savored the aroma of the coffee going up through your nose did you think to praise him? did you think to thank him for that hedge of protection as you go about your day? As the sun began to set did you think about all he’d done for you that day, did you set things right before you said goodnight? for after all we’re not promised tomorrow,thus will I bless thee while I live I will lift up my hands in thy name!

do you cook with herbs? cooking with fresh herbs is new to me, I found it interesting how that fresh rosemary could give a rather nice flavor to baked new potatoes  but yet bitter when eaten alone or with the potatoes this got me thinking & investigating herbs, now we all pretty much know what herbs are, how they can be used to enhance flavors in what we cook , oils etc.

1.a seed-bearing plant whose aerial parts do not persist above ground at the end of the growing season; herbaceous plant

2.any of various usually aromatic plants, such as parsley, rue, and rosemary, that are used in cookery and medicine

the book of Daniel  deals with


isn’t that what our walk with the  Lord today is all about?  we

may not think about herbs too much when w e cook with them , enhance the oils we use in cooking ,start with looking up the word herbs and see where it leads you, you will find that over in Exodus   proverbs herbs played a big role in the Passover, the children of Israel were commanded to bake unleavened bread with bitter herbs, this was to be a symbol of the bitterness they felt when they were slaves in Egypt

and ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread for their selfsame day have AI brought your armies out of the land of Egypt therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance forever( EX.12:17)
