God's creation is great!

psalms 91

Psalm 91

 1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
   will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
   my God, in whom I trust.”
 3 Surely he will save you
   from the fowler’s snare
   and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
   and under his wings you will find refuge;
   his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
   nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
   nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
   ten thousand at your right hand,
   but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
   and see the punishment of the wicked.
 9 If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,”
   and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
   no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
   to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
   so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
   you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
 14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him;
   I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
   I will be with him in trouble,
   I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
   and show him my salvation.”

      Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, one of the great composers in history, is who we will be taking a brief look at today. He was born in the year of 1756, in Salzburg, Austria. The young lad had a music talent, which showed itself when he was extremely young. In fact, as he grew older, he was so gifted in music, that at the young age of 14 he composed his 1st opera! During his life, this amazing musician made over 600 pieces of music, including symphonies, operas, songs, and more! People still remember him today because of his great and interesting music, especially Eine kleine Nachtmusik, The Turkish march, and many, many more!

  Because of Mozart’s determination to       compose and perform, although he died in   1791, we can still enjoy his music today.
