I like how Elizabeth Gardener Bouguereau has painted David giving the honor for his victory of the lion to the LORD.

Elizabeth Jane Gardner Bouguereau

How often we have "lions" in our lives that need to be fought in the strength of the LORD!  Then we can give Him the glory....

Our piece of music this week from Ludwig Van Beethoven is Fur Elise (for Elise) a well-known favorite of many.  You listen on You-Tube here:

Poetry by Amy Carmichael - 

For all that seems impossible,
   For all things hard,
I thank Thee who art my exceeding Joy
   And great Reward.

For what I have not strength to do,
   Where I must fail,
All glory to the Victor in the fight,
   Who will prevail.

As the faithful shepherd toileth,
   Through the briars, up the steep,
Lest some evil prowler spoileth
   His poor foolish wandering sheep,

So, great Shepherd, would we, caring
   For each several precious one,
Something of Thy travail sharing,
   Seek Thy sheep till set of sun.

Only twelve short hours--oh, never
   Let the sense of urgency
Die in us, Good Shepherd, ever
   Let us search the hills with Thee.
