Welcome and enjoy.

Since I am a person of the BOOK,

I am content to allow this quotation from the Psalms

to provide a context for my musings:

The LORD builds up Jerusalem;

he gathers the exiles of Israel.

He heals the brokenhearted

and binds up their wounds.

He determines the number of the stars

and calls them each by name.

Great is the LORD and mighty in power;

his understanding has no limit.

Psalm 147: 2-5
