We are all very busy getting ready for Christmas this year. Grandma made skirts for the girls. She even made one for Ruthie too. Grandpa made a swing. Elise tried the swing out and said cousins hurry and come play with me.
I can't take credit for this as it was in my quiet time this morning, but I thought it was worth sharing. God's presence comes to dwell in our midst when we praise Him, and in His presence we find healing, transformation, and direction for our lives. In fact, the more time we spend praising the LORD, the more we will see ourselves and our circumstances grow in wholeness and completeness. That's because praise softens our hearts and makes them pliable. Stormie Omartin "Praying God's Will For Your Life" Because your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You. Psalm 63:3
Teach me your way, O LORD and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will praise you, O LORD my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever. For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave. Psalm 86: 11-13
