Praise the Lord!

I just thought I would let you all know that my mom's surgery went well. We are very thankful for all your prayers, thoughts, and phone calls. We are so blessed to have so many friends without which it would be impossible to live. Thank you!

Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth all his praise? Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times. Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation; That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.            Psalm 106:1-5

Motherhood is a Calling

My dear sister-in-law, Letha, graciously shared this article with me this morning. She must have known I needed to read it! :-) Actually, her dad, Pastor Taylor, shared it with her. Afterwards, I just couldn't keep it to myself so I'm sharing it all with you. I hope it encourages you and builds you up.

Motherhood Is a Calling (And Where Your Children Rank) - Desiring God

I know that picture doesn't seem to fit the rest of the post but I couldn't resist sharing it with you. Isn't it too sweet when they fall asleep in the most awkward positions??

Burfoot Park...O That Men Would Praise the Lord!

Psalm 107

   O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
   Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.

Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
