Joyful Thursday!

No, this isn't a new meme,...just the way I feel today... :)

If you are here reading today, I'm going to ask you to do something...don't just scan this scripture (yes we're all guilty of the occassional 'scan')...really read it,..slowly, and with the excitement that it deserves...taste every word, this is God's Word! It fills my heart to overflowing... I love His Word!




Sing to the Lord a new song;

Sing to the Lord, all the earth.

Sing to the Lord, bless His name;

Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.

Tell of His glory among the nations,

His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.

For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised;

He is feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the peoples are idols,

But the Lord made the heavens.

Splendor and majesty are before Him,

Strength and beauty are His sanctuary.



Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,

Ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

Ascribe to the Lord the glory of His name;

Bring an offering and come into His courts.

Worship the Lord in holy attire;

Tremble before Him, all the earth.

Say among the nations, "The Lord reigns;

Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved;

He will judge the peoples with equity."

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;

Let the sea roar, and all it contains;

Let the field exult, and all that is in it.

Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy

Before the Lord, for He is coming,

For He is coming to judge the earth.

He will judge the world in righteousness

And the peoples in His faithfulness.


Psalm 96



My heart is full today....full of so many things....

Joy and overflowing love for my Lord Jesus, He has always been so faithful to me, always been there gently guiding me, and comforting me.

My heart is full of thankfulness to Him for the blessings He has given to me, my precious husband,...I am so very thankful for the man that he is and the gift of him in my life.

My heart is full of a Mother's love...today we are picking up our son at the airport. I love being a Mom, oh how my heart aches to kiss my child everyday....today is the day! I am thankful that my great big baby boy is still more than willing to let his Momma kiss his face - he knows how much it means to me.


Oh my heart is full!


He'll be here until the day after Christmas, so I may be absent from blogland. Maybe I'll have a moment to pop on a photo or two, but it's not too likely.


If I'm not around to say it before then, have a very Merry Christmas!!! Thank you for being my friends! :)
