Weekend Worship at First Presbyterian, Aliceville, Alabama

We have a big weekend ahead as I'm sure a lot of you do. We have two graduations and of course Mother's Day to celebrate.

But first I wanted to share this beautiful church we came across in Aliceville, Alabama.  I hope the members there will have a wonderful sabbath celebrating our Lord.

And I wish you and yours the very best this weekend--whatever you are doing.

This church was so pretty, I just couldn't quit taking pictures of it.  Hope it blesses you.







 What a beautiful home, God-of-the-Angel-Armies! 
      



I've always longed to live in a place like this,
   Always dreamed of a room in your house, 



where I could sing for joy to God-alive! 



Birds find nooks and crannies in your house, 



 sparrows and swallows make nests there. 




 They lay their eggs and raise their young,
      singing their songs in the place where we worship. 





 God-of-the-Angel-Armies! King! God!
      How blessed they are to live and sing there! 





And how blessed all those in whom you live,
      whose lives become roads you travel; 




 They wind through lonesome valleys, come upon brooks,
      discover cool springs and pools brimming with rain! 




 God-of-the-Angel-Armies, listen:
      O God of Jacob, open your ears—I'm praying! 




  Look at our shields, glistening in the sun,
      our faces, shining with your gracious anointing. 






One day spent in your house, this beautiful place of worship,
      beats thousands spent on Greek island beaches.
   I'd rather scrub floors in the house of my God
      than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin. 



 All sunshine and sovereign is God,
      generous in gifts and glory.
   He doesn't scrimp with his traveling companions.
      It's smooth sailing all the way with God-of-the-Angel-Armies.



 God-of-the-Angel-Armies! King! God!
Psalm 84
