I'm off to Lampasas again!

Hola Amigos & Amigas!

I'm taking the weekend off and am heading to Lampasas. My cousin's parents have a nice ranch house, complete with cows, deer corn, and a lick pop.

I thoroughly look forward to the two days of quiet. And the stars. Goodness. You would not believe how beautiful the stars are.

When I am in the midst of such things that are far bigger and grander than I am, I am reminded of a beautiful passage in the book of Job. Here is the excerpt I'm specifically thinking of:

Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell me, if you have understanding.
Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
On what were its bases sunk,or who laid its cornerstone,
when the morning stars sang together
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
(Job 38:4-7)
