Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth;
sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise.
Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! Because of your great power, your enemies cringe before you.

A foreign exchange student was about to return to his home country after a year in the States. I asked him what he observed about Americans. His comments were fair, and both critical and complimentary. He observed that Americans say "awesome" a lot. Everything was awesome from a hamburger to a sunrise. There really should be some words set aside to be used only in those jaw-dropping, face-melting moments of pure amazement. In a land where everyone gets a trophy, it is especially important to save the standing O's for the one who is worthy of the word, "awesome."

Wow, Lord, wow! Amen.
