Today is the day....I will keep my words short because there are lots of words about this day and what it brought us. So, for today, I'll share this scripture. My brother found it just before Kanyon turned 1 and he said it reminded him of Kanyon. I had been "looking" for a verse for him and this one is perfect for our Grand Kanyon. I'm working on a print of this for his room, but I'm having a hard time making it happen. Here it is:
May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.
May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.
May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
We will shout for joy when you are victorious
and will lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the LORD grant all your requests.
Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;
he answers him from his holy heaven
with the saving power of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses;
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.
