He causes the grass to grow for the cattle,
And vegetation for the service of man,
That he may bring forth food from the earth,
And wine that makes glad the heart of man,
Oil to make his face shine,
And bread which strengthens man's heart.
The trees of the LORD are full of sap,
The cedars of Lebanon which He planted,
Where the birds make their nests;
The stork has her home in the fir trees.
The high hills are for the wild goats;
The cliffs are a refuge for the rock badgers.

--TODAY'S NOT SO TRIVIAL TRIVIA QUESTION:
Q. Deborah was a judge of Israel. Did God anoint her to do anything else but judge?
--TODAY'S BIT OF WISDOM/REFLECTION:
In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous.
Close to my heart I fold each lovely thing
The sweet day yields; and, not disconsolate,
With the calm patience of the woods I wait
For leaf and blossom when God gives us spring!
-John Greenleaf Whittier
