Kettle

It is rare that I buy anything like this in a brick and mortar store or on a whim, but it was $5 off at Target and its lovely shape and color appealed to me and so I did. In this case it was actually $8 cheaper than Amazon, and I am glad I bought it at Target because I wouldn’t have if I would have read the reviews. One reviewer is quite right in pointing out one drawback of the design, which is that if you boil a second pot too soon after a first, well opening the lid might give you a steam burn. I also would have designed it slightlyt differently by having the red of the kettle go all the way to the base. Still, its roundness gives it prodigious capacity, it boils relatively fast, and I like how it looks. So, I will just choose to be careful with the steam.

Come over and have a cuppa!

Praise the Lord

frosty-morning

103

1 Praise the LORD, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-

3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,

4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,

5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6 The LORD works righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed.

7 He made known his ways to Moses,
his deeds to the people of Israel:

8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.

9 He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;

10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.

11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;

12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13 As a father has compassion on his children,
so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;

14 for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.

15 As for man, his days are like grass,
he flourishes like a flower of the field;

16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and its place remembers it no more.

17 But from everlasting to everlasting
the LORD’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children-

18 with those who keep his covenant
and remember to obey his precepts.

19 The LORD has established his throne in heaven,
and his kingdom rules over all.

20 Praise the LORD, you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his bidding,
who obey his word.

21 Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts,
you his servants who do his will.

22 Praise the LORD, all his works
everywhere in his dominion.
Praise the LORD, O my soul.
