We are having a thunderstorm right now. Oscar, pictured above does not like thunder, he pants and is visibly stressed by it.
A psalm of David.
1 Ascribe to the LORD, O mighty ones, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of HIS holiness.
3 The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD thunders over the mighty waters.
4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is majestic.
5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
6 HE makes Lebanon skip like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox.
7 The voice of the LORD strikes with flashes of lightning.
8 The voice of the LORD shakes the desert; the LORD shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the LORD twists the oaks and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, "Glory!"
10 The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD is enthroned as King forever.
11 The LORD gives strength to HIS people; the LORD blesses HIS people with peace.
Personally I enjoy a thunderstorm, when I'm awake. If awakened in the night by one, they at first terrify me. But once awake, I can once again enjoy the voice of the Lord.
Oscar on the other hand is a dog, he will never be able to enjoy the majesty of God's voice in the thunder. He doesn't have the capability of understanding.
But I do.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name; worship the LORD in the splendor of HIS holiness.
For a wonderful recording of thunder, consider the above mentioned album.
It has a 30 minute track of a thunderstorm. We have it on vinyl, I need to get it for David on CD.
