Kneeling at His feet

Whether we praise Him for His unfathomable majesty or petition Him for daily needs,

prayer is the expression of our dependence upon God;

our whole-souled reliance upon
His power to sustain us,
His mercy to forgive us,
His bounty to supply us,
and His glory to overwhelm us as we reflect on WHO HE IS.

How wonderful it is that we can go before the Almighty Creator in prayer! And that He hears us! Praise His name!

Hi Bethany,
I have been visiting you blog for a couple of months now and thought I would make myself known. I found your blog while I was on someone elses blog and was atrratced by your name. I live in Canberra, Australia with my 6 unmarried sisters and 3 brothers. My eldest sister (Cassandra) was married last October and is now expecting her first baby in December. My Mum is also expecting baby number 12 in January. We live in a 4 bedroom townhouse with 2 dogs, a bird, a guinea pig, rabbit, and 2 fish. As you can probably imagine our house is always full and busy. I enjoy taking photos and when I saw that you do to (even though yours look professional and mine don't look anywhere near as good as yours) and that you come from a large family and were homeschooled and I liked you. Anyway, I will stop rambling on. I just wanted to let you know who was skulking around on your blog.
Love,
Bethany

When I came to your blog today, very tired I might add, I kept looking at the picture trying to figure out what sort of insect that was on the leaves. Was it a butterfly? A moth? Then my tired eyes focussed on what was only a smaller leaf. I should really shut down the computer and go to bed. LOL
