Favorite scriptures: “Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty firmament! Praise Him with trumpet sound; praise Him with lute and harp! Praise Him with timbre and dance; praise Him with strings and pipe! Praise Him with sounding cymbals; praise Him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that breathes praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 150)
