Let’s try that this week – St Francis Day is coming up next weekend, 4 October.
A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from God,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 She will not let your foot slip—
she who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, she who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 God watches over you—
she is your shade at your right hand;
6 Brother Sun will not harm you by day,
nor Sister Moon by night…
7 God will keep you from all harm—
she will watch over your life;
8 God will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Let’s celebrate this week – look up and know you’re cared about.
