Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada - "God's Invisible Qualities"

 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities -- his eternal power and divine nature -- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

Peggy’s Cove, Canada - “For in him all things were created”

 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over  all creation. For in him all things were created:things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia - "A Contrite Spirit"


"Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?"  declares the Lord.  These are the ones I look on with favor:  those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word.

Isaiah 66:2

Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia - "Let Your Light Shine"


"You are the light of the world.  A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

Could We with Ink the Ocean Fill...

Could we with ink the ocean fill;
And were the skies of parchment made;
Were every stalk on earth a quill'
And every man a scribe by trade;

To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky.


This is verse 3 of Frederick Lehman's hymn {The Love of God" (1917),  This verse is apparently an adapted translation of a Jewish poem by Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai (1050).  It seems that the hymn-writer found it scribbled on the walls of a patient's room in an insane asylum after the death of its occupant.  Whatever its origins, it is a wonderful and unusually striking piece of devotional writing.
