...my heart is full as I think upon the loss my dear sweet daughter in law has experienced this past week. Her father was tragically killed..suddenly..without warning. I cannot imagine the ache in her heart..and yet she showed herself strong while I was with her.
As the above verse states...the LORD Jesus...HE IS OUR STRONG HOLD.
I think upon the many trials in my own life where I needed that strong hold...and He was indeed mine as well, as I put my trust in HIM.
My son too...how thankful I am...that HE showed himself strong..for her. At such a needful time of comfort..her own husband, strong in faith.
We don't always understand what happens...but GOD is perfect as are HIS ways.
As I looked at my two precious twin grandsons just three weeks old..how timely that GOD allowed my son and daughter in law to be BLESSED in such a sweet way and to have this comfort of love in the midst of trial.
GOD knows...she brought them into the world with her Father nearby to share in a memory she will always cherish. Photos she can share with her children.
The LORD is good...he gives GRACE and Strength in time of need.
As we continue on in our days...of prayer and courage...
May the LORD Jesus be Glorified and HIS manifold Graces revealed.
(thank you so very much to all of you who have left comforting words and prayer)
THIS IS THE DAY...I thank the LORD Jesus for HIS WORD..HIS COMFORT..HIS GRACE.

PRAISE ye the LORD.
I will praise the LORD with my whole heart,
in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
The works of the LORD are great,
sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
His work is honourable and glorious:
and his righteousness endureth for ever.
He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered:
the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
He hath given meat unto them that fear him:
he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
He hath shewed his people the power of his works,
that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
The works of his hands are verity and judgment;
all his commandments are sure.
They stand fast for ever and ever,
and are done in truth and uprightness.
He sent redemption unto his people:
he hath commanded his covenant for ever:
holy and reverend is his name.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom:
a good understanding have all they that do his commandments:
his praise endureth for ever.
Since my beginning days as a Born Again Christian..I have had continual Praises to my GOD. He is so worthy.
He has done so much for me!! Truly HIS WORD is TRUE...HIS PROMISES fail not...
How often do you actually say?..PRAISE GOD...PRAISE THE LORD!
It is not a Charismatic outcry...but one of the heart full of rejoicing and thanksgiving!
Do you recognize those many moments...that deserve this EXCLAMATION!
So oft in the world we YELL out...
GO FOR IT!...ATTA BOY!...ATTA GIRL!...WHOOO HOOO!
How much more the bold PRAISE to GOD for his wonderous works in our lives!
Make known HIS GREATNESS...say aloud...
PRAISE THE LORD!!
