Glacier National Park

PSALM 84
1 How lovely is your dwelling place,
O LORD Almighty!
2 My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.
3 Even the sparrow has found a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.
4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
they are ever praising you.
Selah
5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.
6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca,
they make it a place of springs;
the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
7 They go from strength to strength,
till each appears before God in Zion.
8 Hear my prayer, O LORD God Almighty;
listen to me, O God of Jacob.
Selah
9 Look upon our shield, [c] O God;
look with favor on your anointed one.
10 Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
12 O LORD Almighty,
blessed is the man who trusts in you

I spent the last two days up at Many Glacier in the most beautiful weather this side of Heaven.  I saw two of the largest blackbears I have ever seen in the wild.  One was standing on his hind feet eating berries...he was only about 20 feet from me...fortunately I was in my truck!  Whew.  These park bears don't seem to have the natural fear that bears I run into up by the wilderness have.  I am so glad I didn't run into these guys while hiking.  I also spent time working towards two artists and craftsmem shows I have coming up...Tune in next week to see what these turn into.
