Monday Manna for October 19 - What is man?

Monday Manna

The purpose of Monday Manna is to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word.

On the first and third Mondays of each month, anyone who wants to participate can post their thoughts on a specific verse--posted here at my blog on the Thursday before, to allow you to chew on it over the weekend. It doesn't have to be long -- just a few thoughts, a picture you feel helps express it, a poem, a short story, a devotional. Just post it on your blog on Mondayish (early OR late is fine, by the way!), then come back here and link up in the MckLinky gadget that will be at the bottom of MY post at o'dark thirty that morning.

I'll admit that I didn't have a verse "jump out at me" to pick for this week. So, I thought I'd read a bit of Word-Filled Wednesday, hoping to find a verse that screamed "pick me." Well, I did - and it was at the blog of my dear friend Teresa Rainey. So, without further ado, here are our verses for Monday.
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? Psalm 8:3-4
Humbling AND wonderful, isn't it? Looking forward to your thoughts (and my own! LOL). Be sure to come back on Monday and add your entry to my post. See you then!


  1. Very humbling verse, Joanne. You're gonna make me dig deeper on this one, aren't you? Thanks.

    Love ya, friend.

  2. Wonderful verse, Joanne, from the very same passage I have just posted about too. Through it we can see our significance to God - we are special, we have value.

  3. I love it Jo. I've already written mine. :)

  4. I love this verse because it reminds me to notice the world around me and bask in His creation.

    Joanne, I have been meaning for some time to come over here and tell you how much I appreciate you. Your encouraging comments on my posts at Adding Zest have really kept me going back to try again. I can't tell you how much seeing your consistent positive response has encouraged me. Thanks, my friend!


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!

My One Word: 2016 and 2017

Most who know me know I am a very goal-oriented person (in fact, I already shared my goal wrap-up for 2016 and my new ones for 2017 on this...
