An Awesome Giveaway and a Psalm for Today....

I have run across a couple of awesome giveaways the past couple of days.
I let the one I found yesterday get away from me so I wanted to share this one with you right now!!

First, over at Pawley's Island Posh, Julia is giving away a two hour photo session and a cd of pictures!!!
I would LOVE to win a photo session in Charleston with her! You should go check it out.  I promise that once you see the beautiful pictures she takes you will want to win, too!!!

Also,most days when I go and sit in the car line at the girls school, I read my bible...
And as we all know, God's word never returns void.
It always has something to say to me.
Today was no different.

Psalm 50
1 The LORD, the Mighty One, is God, 
      and he has spoken; 
   he has summoned all humanity 
      from where the sun rises to where it sets. 
 2 From Mount Zion, the perfection of beauty, 
      God shines in glorious radiance. 
 3 Our God approaches, 
      and he is not silent. 
   Fire devours everything in his way, 
      and a great storm rages around him. 
 4 He calls on the heavens above and earth below 
      to witness the judgment of his people. 
 5 “Bring my faithful people to me— 
      those who made a covenant with me by giving sacrifices.” 
 6 Then let the heavens proclaim his justice, 
      for God himself will be the judge. 

 7 “O my people, listen as I speak. 
      Here are my charges against you, O Israel: 
      I am God, your God! 
 8 I have no complaint about your sacrifices 
      or the burnt offerings you constantly offer. 
 9 But I do not need the bulls from your barns 
      or the goats from your pens. 
 10 For all the animals of the forest are mine, 
      and I own the cattle on a thousand hills. 
 11 I know every bird on the mountains, 
      and all the animals of the field are mine. 
 12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you, 
      for all the world is mine and everything in it. 
 13 Do I eat the meat of bulls? 
      Do I drink the blood of goats? 
 14 Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, 
      and keep the vows you made to the Most High. 
 15 Then call on me when you are in trouble, 
      and I will rescue you, 
      and you will give me glory.”

 16 But God says to the wicked: 
   “Why bother reciting my decrees 
      and pretending to obey my covenant? 
 17 For you refuse my discipline 
      and treat my words like trash. 
 18 When you see thieves, you approve of them, 
      and you spend your time with adulterers. 
 19 Your mouth is filled with wickedness, 
      and your tongue is full of lies. 
 20 You sit around and slander your brother— 
      your own mother’s son. 
 21 While you did all this, I remained silent, 
      and you thought I didn’t care. 
   But now I will rebuke you, 
      listing all my charges against you. 
 22 Repent, all of you who forget me, 
      or I will tear you apart, 
      and no one will help you. 
 23 But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. 
      If you keep to my path, 
      I will reveal to you the salvation of God.”

Hope it speaks to you, too!
in HIM-
