Category: Psalm 113:3 Moments

On This Day in 1968…

…the crew of Apollo 8 sent back this Christmas Eve broadcast. Here are Bill Anders, Jim Lovell, and Frank Borman reading from Genesis 1.


With all of the technological advances since 1968, the science community, and our country at large, has only managed to get further and further from the truth.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it…
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory…and from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.” John 1:1-18

The babe in the manger was no less than the Creator of it all.

Happy Thanksgiving and Hau’ oli la hanau, Uncle Jody!

Today, all of our extended family members will be gathered around mainland tables with other family members and we’re really missing everyone, so here’s a “Happy Thanksgiving” to all the families out there enjoying our Lord’s gracious bounty and rich togetherness. Also, a special shout out to my big brother, Jody, the second-best fisherman in the family and definitely the best photographer, whose birthday it is and who just posted this awesome video of some of his photos on Youtube that I wanted to share with the world (or at least the 3450 countries that have come across this blog). You can see more of his work at http://www.sierramountainphotography.com/

F is for…

If you are a GMK follower you should already have this week’s verse memorized.
I quote it weekly under Psalm 113:3 Moments. Unfortunately I wasn’t taking pictures of the sunsets this week because the photo memory on my iphone is completely full! So here’s a sunset pic from a few months ago I found while deleting hundreds of other sunsets from my phone.

F is for… “From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised!” Psalm 113:3

Hymn of the Week: “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee” (Beethoven/Van Dyke)

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!

All Thy works with joy surround Thee, Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee, Center of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale and mountain, flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in Thee.
