Embrace this psalm as a connective to your whole week, a song of praise for God celebrated as the center of life. The psalmist is your guide on a tour of God’s universe. God has loving care for the world and for you.

The catalog of God’s grandeur moves from inner to outer manifestations. There is an air of spontaneity about the order of things, as the sacred writer simply expresses what comes to his heart in whatever order the Spirit prompts. You might write a psalm that follows a similar movement. What elements of God’s goodness does the Spirit give you to express?

The ultimate gift is the finest of wheat that becomes the sacrament Christ’s body.
