My Mosaic (Sept 10)
Did you know, a 100 sided object is called a hectogon?
I've never thought about a 100 sided object, that it even existed, or had a name. Teaching my kids geometry a few years ago, apparently we never got that far.

"Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever" (Ps 73:25-26).
If nothing else today, may the Lord show me grace and mercy to see more of who he is and may I rely on his strength and his promises, believing he is faithful and sovereign.
