End of the Week and Beginning of the Weekend Psalms featuring sky photos

[Sing praises] to Him Who rides upon the heavens;
the ancient heavens;
behold, He sends forth His voice,
His mighty voice.

Ascribe power and strength to God;
His majesty is over Israel,
and His strength and might are in the skies.

Psalm 68: 33, 34

The clouds poured down water,
the skies sent out a sound {of rumbling thunder};
Your arrows went forth {in forked lightning}.

The voice of Your thunder was in the whirlwind,
the lightnings illumined the world; the earth trembled and shook.

Psalm 77: 17, 18

Yet He commanded the clouds above
and opened the doors of heaven;

Psalm 78:23

THE HEAVENS declare the glory of God;
and the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork.

Psalm 19:1

Let heaven (the angels) praise Your wonders, O Lord,
Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones (the holy angels).

For who in the heavens can be compared to the Lord?
Who among the mighty [heavenly beings] can be likened to the Lord,

A God  greatly feared and revered in the council of the holy (angelic) ones,
and to be feared and worshipfully revered above all those
who are round about Him?

O Lord God of hosts, who is a mighty one like unto You, O Lord?
And Your faithfulness is round about You
[an essential part of You at all times].

Psalms 89: 6 - 8

HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High
shall remain stable and fixed
under the shadow of the Almighty
[Whose power no foe can withstand].

I will say of the Lord,
He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God;
on Him I lean and rely,
and in Him I [confidently] trust.

Psalms 91:1, 2

{For me Friday night is neither part of the week or the weekend;
it is the short period of time in which I recover--not plan, not do--recover.
This recovery time is to appease my  fibromyalgia.
It requires this rest time
and I've learned to comply 
so it doesn't wreak havoc in and on my body.}

This is my explanation as to why this weekly post is done on Saturday mornings
and not Friday nights.

May the "End of the Week and Beginning of the Weekend" Psalms
bless you as you go about your lives.
