Psalm 34: 1-3 ~ "I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exhalt His name."
Some days it's easier to praise the Lord than others isn't it? It's easy to praise the Lord when times are good and blessings abound. When tragedy strikes it's hard to see God's goodness through the sorrow. The first line of this verse reminded me that we praise the Lord in ALL times, not just when we feel like it. So, this week I am thankful for :
~The rain yesterday because my plants really needed the water!
~I picked my first cucumber from my garden last night and it was delicious!
~My daughter and how well she has adjusted back into the swing of things from traveling and company last weekend.
~My husband for constantly thinking of my needs and helping out with Emily when he gets home so that I have time to get the house back in order.
~Our church family and new friends.
~God's free gift of salvation and the comfort of knowing that lost loved ones who have accepted that gift are standing in his presence!
