Thanks for the Memories

Dear God,

Every single day of my life you give me a reason to give thanks.  Sometimes it’s easy to thank you when it’s something tangible or visible to the eye. 

Likewise Lord, it’s easy to become ungrateful when I can’t touch or see the things you do for me on a daily basis.  However, Father I’m learning more and more every day that there is just so much more to you than what my eyes can see and what my hands can touch.

Today Father, as I sat memories ran through my mind of family, friends, love, laughter and happy times.  The memories brought a smile to my face and the thought to my mind that memories are a precious blessing, something for which I should thank my father up above.

So today Lord I want to say, thank you for the memories. 

Thank you for memories from childhood that still bring a nostalgic smile to my face.

Thank you for memories of family who inspire me to always give you praise.

Thank you for memories of friends who encourage me along the way
Thank you Lord for the memories of those who have gone on and those present still.  I consider them all to be blessings in my life.

Lord again I say, thank you for memories.

Your daughter,

The Gift of Prayer...

Have you ever thought about prayer as a gift you can offer as well as receive?
I'm over at my friend Michele's  new blog, Hidden in My Heart, talking about The Gift of Prayer.
I hope you'll stop by.


I've also shared this post, The Gift of Prayer at Laced With Grace.

A Quote I Like

When a Christian shuns fellowship with other Christians
the devil smiles,
When he stops studying the Bible
 the devil laughs.
When he stops praying
the devil shouts for joy.
--Corrie Ten Boom

I found this quote recently and I thought I'd share it with you.  
I think I need this reminder for those days when I don't feel like doing any of those things.

Let the Church Say...

Let the church say Amen,Let the church say Amen
God has spoken, so let the church say Amen

Let the church, let 'em say Amen
If you believe the word, let the whole church say Amen
God has spoken, so let the church say Amen

I can’t remember hearing the song Let the Church Say Amen before I heard Pastor Marvin Winans sing it at Whitney Houston’s funeral.

 Ever since then, it has been stuck in my spirit.

I’ve found the song and I’ve been listening to it over and over again because it ministers to my heart and I can never be reminded enough that God’s promises are sure.

Sometimes life can get difficult.  Dreams, desires and even the promises of God seem like a fairy tale, something that happens to others while you stand by and watch.

But I’ve been reminded every time I sang that song in the past few weeks that God has spoken and even though his word seem long in coming to pass I say Amen.

 I notice that I've been leaning towards the same types of songs lately.  Maybe God is trying to send me a message...

Trusting Him,
