And Let The Beauty (Psalm 90) – With Painting By Georgia O’Keeffe

This last verse from Psalm 90 (KJV) seems fitting as we reflect on 2011 and look forward to 2012. 

And let the beauty

of the LORD our God

be upon us:

and establish thou

the work of our hands upon us;

yea the work of our hands

establish thou it.
