In my Bible study and reading I came across this blessing and wanted to share it with you as we PRAISE JESUS...

 Blessed be the LORD, my rock,
  who trains my hands for war,
  and my fingers for battle;
 he is my steadfast love and my fortress,
  my stronghold and my deliverer,
 my shield and he in whom I take refuge,
  who subdues peoples under me.
 O LORD, what is man that you regard him,
  or the son of man that you think of him?
 Man is like a breath;
  his days are like a passing shadow.
 Bow your heavens, O LORD, and come down!
  Touch the mountains so that they smoke!
 Flash forth the lightning and scatter them;
  send out your arrows and rout them!
 Stretch out your hand from on high;
  rescue me and deliver me from the many waters,
  from the hand of foreigners,
 whose mouths speak lies
  and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
 I will sing a new song to you, O God;
  upon a ten-stringed harp I will play to you,
 who gives victory to kings,
  who rescues David his servant from the cruel sword.
 Rescue me and deliver me
  from the hand of foreigners,
 whose mouths speak lies
  and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
 May our sons in their youth
  be like plants full grown,
 our daughters like corner pillars
  cut for the structure of a palace;
 may our granaries be full,
  providing all kinds of produce;
 may our sheep bring forth thousands
  and ten thousands in our fields;
 may our cattle be heavy with young,
  suffering no mishap or failure in bearing;
 may there be no cry of distress in our streets!
 Blessed are the people to whom such blessings fall!
  Blessed are the people whose God is the LORD!
(Psalm 144 ESV)

I just was really touched by this Psalm.  In it the author praises God but also asks a blessing for family and life...That our children are healthy and strong, we have food and the things we need.  And, I believe he is even asking for health.  I find it SO amazing that God's Word addresses even our basic needs and even moreso, that we can KNOW that He will provide for them because of the Scripture that states that He cares for us even more than the BEAUTIFUL lilies and birds.  We have an amazing SAVIOR!! Have a wonderful day my friend! Blessings to you...

Don't forget, no matter what the circumstances, to ALWAYS RELAX AND PRAISE JESUS!
