Psalm 98:1-2 – O sing unto THE LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory. THE LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
This is one of my favorite Psalms. (Yes, I looked back and it is the last Psalm I blogged on, nearly a year ago.) It shows how great God is and how good He is, and echos my worship and gratitude back to Him. I truly love to SING unto the Lord.
I have been in awe of my God, my King, my Savior, my Lord today, just rejoicing in His greatness and His goodness. Making melody in my heart and a joyful song with my voice.
While rejoicing in the spirit and in song, everyday life continues. Although He has kept me in perfect peace, my flesh has been frustrated at web changes today – the planned “remodeling” is going fine, but slow – I actually took a break from recoding pages today. But I wasn’t counting on going to my blog and finding my template totally messed up!
I’ve been looking at an app that would work with my Dreamweaver CS3 to build WordPress templates, so I figured now was the time to give ThemeDreamer a try. Since I knew I wanted a different template anyhow, I’ve been looking – and not finding anything I like. Well, maybe with this new app I could find a basic shell I like and adapt it.
Found one, tried, it didn’t work. 🙁 Looked more, didn’t find anything else – even though I really wish this one had 3 columns rather than 2. Decided while I was at it I REALLY needed to upgrade my WP software, (running a REALLY old one,) figured that could be part of the reason it wasn’t working.
SOOOOO – upgraded WP. Still singing praises to my King.
I uploaded the new Template “out of the box” to make sure it worked OK on its own, without my changes. It worked – but it’s ugly.
Now it’s going on midnight. But I can’t leave it as it is. I think my blog has shown over half a dozen “looks” today. Praying no-one looked while it was messed up or down in between.
Decided to go back in and make a few changes, just to see if it will work – without the Theme Dreamer, just basic CSS changes.
Beautiful! I love it! It still needs tweaking, (and I still wish I had 3 columns) but I am pleased with how it is shaping up, and I can go to bed now. Still singing praises to my King – not only because He is great and done marvelous things – like my salvation! Not only because He is good – and gives me the very breath of life. But also because He cares about the little things in my life, like nice looking blog sites.
I hope you like it too!
