Joy and Psalm 100
It has been a joyful week. I memorized Psalm 100 so I could go about saying it as it expresses something of what I have been feeling. It is a good walking prayer:
A psalm of thanks.
100 Shout triumphantly to the Lord, all the earth! 2 Serve the Lord with celebration! Come before him with shouts of joy! 3 Know that the Lord is God— he made us; we belong to him. We are his people, the sheep of his own pasture. 4 Enter his gates with thanks; enter his courtyards with praise! Thank him! Bless his name! 5 Because the Lord is good, his loyal love lasts forever; his faithfulness lasts generation after generation.
I prefer the New American Bible translation as it has "Sing joyfully to the Lord, all ye lands'
Serve the Lord with gladness" - but celebration is good, too!
We have had a week of joy here at Oakwood as we had both Central Team and Provincial Team members here with us from Sunday to Thursday. We had many meetings and meals with them and certainly our hearts were burning within us as we heard about all the Society of the Sacred Heart is doing in all parts of the world.
