If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the place of the dead, you are there.
If I ride the morning winds to the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, your strength will support me.
If I try to hide in the darkness, the night becomes light around me.
For even darkness cannot hide from God; to you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are both alike to you.
What A Mighty Yah You Are! …

Here I am on the threshold of my 81st birthday. Complete rest. No more attempts to hide my shame. You have heard and answered my echo of the Psalmist prayer. Quote:
Psalms 39:1-13 TLB
I said to myself, I’m going to quit complaining! I’ll keep quiet, especially when the ungodly are around me.
But as I stood there silently the turmoil within me grew to the bursting point. The more I mused, the hotter the fires inside. Then at last I spoke and pled with the Master:
Master help me to realize how brief my time on earth will be. Help me to know that I am here for but a moment more.
My life is no longer than my hand! My whole lifetime is but a moment to you. Proud man! Frail as breath! A shadow! And all his busy rushing ends in nothing. He heaps up riches for someone else to spend.
And so, Master, my only hope is in you.
Save me from being overpowered by my sins, for even fools will mock me then.
Master, I am speechless before you. I will not open my mouth to speak one word of complaint, for my punishment is from you.
Master don’t hit me anymore—I am exhausted beneath your hand.
When you punish a man for his sins, he is destroyed, for he is as fragile as a moth-infested cloth; yes, man is frail as breath.
Hear my prayer, O Master; listen to my cry! Don’t sit back, unmindful of my tears. For I am your guest. I am a traveler passing through the earth, as all my fathers were.
Spare me, Master! Let me recover and be filled with happiness again before my death.
You Have Spared Me. You Are Recovering Me. You Are Filling With Joy Inexplicable …
Joy Inexplicable? Indeed! Joy Inexplicable full of You. For You are LOVE, joy, the ultimate happiness I never dreamed I could obtain.
And So? Now I Know What To Do …
