My Exceeding Joy

And I will go to the altar of God
To God, my exceeding joy,
And I will praise you,
I will praise you with the harp,
Oh God, my God,
My exceeding joy.

Psalm 43:4
A few weeks ago Lydia and I made up a tune to this verse. We've been singing it at Bible Study. Last night we had Bible study, and hence, it's stuck in my head. :) I'd share the tune, but right now I don't have the means to do it.

Last week Bible study was cancelled because the woman who hosted it was sick. It was really nice to go last night. My spirit feels refreshed.

The test siren is blaring, as it is one pm on the first Saturday of the month. The dogs aren't howling, which is nice. Sirens really aren't bad noises, if they're not very close. Kind of like howling wind, it's a cool noise.

HAHAHA... aww, poor baby. We threw out our old broken couch, finally, a few weeks ago. It had been pushed against the large window in our living room. Now the area in front of that is blank. Sophie used to leap up on the couch and look out the window... Well, she just leapt up to do so, on the window sill! Which of course, isn't really wide enough for a terrier to perch on (since they don't have the grace of a cat) and so she fell. She's fine. But it was amusing. I think she was trying to see what all that noise was about.
The siren has stopped and Sophie's now perched in my lap.

I got to catch up with a dear friend, Sarah, last night. She got married in August and moved to New York and I've not gotten to talk with her on the phone since prior to her wedding. We didn't talk very long, about forty minutes, but we said we'd try to talk again this weekend as we have plenty more to discuss. She's a dear Christian sister with unique insights and is precious to my soul. Whenever she and I talk alone, and sometimes with others, the discussion is distinctly of a high spiritual nature. She and I were divinely meant to be friends, and I adore her. I feel more peaceful and happy just from talking to her yesterday.
Well, not just from talking to her. Combining talking to her with Bible study and I feel very plugged in.
I am uncertain if I shall leave tonight or tomorrow, but I should be going to Charlotte on Sunday. When I say "leave" I mean leave my home. A friend of mine is going, but she lives in Spartanburg and doesn't want to pick me up. So I have to get to her. So I'm not sure yet if I'm going to go spend the night at her house or rendezvous in the morning. But we will be visiting Jeremy Vangsnes. :)
I'm having a scifi-riffic morning. I watched three episodes of Star Trek Next Generation and then one episode of Star Trek Enterprise and now I'm starting an episode of Doctor Who. :) I'm a huge sci-fi/fantasy fan.

God is amazing. I began the morning singing His praises. An excellent way to wake up! I believe after this episode of Doctor Who I shall go outside, visit cats and Jesus. :)

God bless you all!
