Productivity seems to come in spurts here. One day we are able to accomplish at least one or two things and we're doing the happy dance. On other days, we count the grains of sand for entertainment. Yesterday was one of those days. We are continually trying to predict when a store will be open during Ramadan hours. This wouldn't be difficult except that regular hours of operation aren't regular…ever.
There are no boundaries to his greatness.
each one tells stories of your mighty acts.
Your beauty and splendor have everyone talking;
[John] composes songs on your wonders.
Your marvelous doings are headline news;
I could write a book full of the details of your greatness.
May the fame of your goodness spread across [Egypt and Sudan];
your righteousness is on everyone’s lips.
God is all mercy and grace—
not quick to anger, is rich in love.
God is good to one and all [Egyptians and Sudanese];
everything he does is suffused with grace.
Creation and creatures applaud you, God;
your holy people bless you.
They talk about the glories of your rule,
they exclaim over your splendor,
Letting [our friends] know of your power for good,
the lavish splendor of your kingdom.
Your kingdom is a kingdom eternal;
you never get voted out of office.
God always does what he says,
and is gracious in everything he does.
God gives a hand to those down on their luck,
gives a fresh start to those ready to quit.
All eyes are on you, expectant;
you give them their meals on time.
Generous to a fault,
you lavish your favor on all creatures.
Everything God does is right—
the trademark on all his works is love.
God’s there, listening for all who pray,
for all who pray and mean it.
He does what’s best for those who fear him—
hears them call out, and saves them.
God sticks by all who love him,
but it’s all over for those who don’t.
My mouth is filled with God’s praise.
Let everything living bless him,
bless his holy name from now to eternity!
