Morning Coffee - Praising Him!

"Giving thanks always for all things unto God"   Eph. 5:20
We once saw a man draw some black dots. We looked and could make nothing of them but an irregular assemblage of black dots. Then he drew a few lines, put in a few rests, then a clef at the beginning, and we saw these black dots were musical notes. On sounding them we were singing,

"Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him all creatures here below."

There are many black dots and black spots in our lives, and we cannot understand why they are there or why God permitted them to come. But if we let God come into our lives, and adjust the dots in the proper way, and draw the lines He wants, and separate this from that, and put in the rests at the proper places; out of the black dots and spots in our lives He will make a glorious harmony. Let us not hinder Him in this glorious work! --C. H. P.

I think I'll sing some praises while enjoying my morning cup!  Feel free to join in!


  1. We just don't have The Artist's perspective on things do we? That hymn was a lovely way to start the morning. Thank you Sandy!

  2. I just love all the visual illustrations that help us understand the workings of God. By themselves all the lines, squiggles & dots do nothing but together they make something beautiful.

    Enjoy your day, Jane. (We have quite a thunderstorm going on right now!)

  3. Just beautiful - thanks for sharing! Can't remember where, but I saw a painting that was all small dots - up close - but take a few steps back to get a better perspective, it was a lovely black and white portrait of someone! Spots and spaces in right proportion - just lovely!
