We will Praise Him

At the end of another week and His blessings are all around us.
The sky is perfect.
Trees are letting their colors out for fall.
Air is cool in the morning, warm in the afternoon, and cool again at night.

We will praise Him for His excellence in creation!
We will praise Him for His plan and purpose in our lives.
We will praise Him for joy and laughter and all good things He gives.

I praise Him, today, for my children.
My growing, strong, and healthy little girls... and the endless giggles that only girls can provide.
And, I praise Him that even after the yucky, hard, bearing down days...
He still loves me. 
Despite my attitudes and mess ups, failures and shortcomings.
He see's His son. His perfect, priceless Jesus. 

"We praise Thee, O God,
For the Son of Thy love, 
For our Savior who died and
  Is now gone above.

Hallelujah! Thine the glory,
Hallelujah! Amen;
Hallelujah! Thine the glory,
 We praise Thee again.

We praise Thee, O God,For Thy Spirit of light,
Who has shown us our Savior,
 And scattered our night.

All glory and praise
  To Thee, Father of love,
For through Jesus' redemption 
 Thy heart we may prove.

We praise Thee again; 
We are filled with Thy love,
And each heart is rekindled 
 With fire from above."
