How Great Is Our God

When you've been blogging for five years as I have 
and have come to know people and popped in to their homes on an almost daily basis,
You find that you miss them dearly whenever the posts become fewer.

So, these flowers are for you,
those of you who have been so close to me through the past few years,
those of you who have never commented, just followed,
those of you who have commented on almost every post I've ever written.

Those of you who have disagreed me with me on my views through the years
and either been so tactful in your disagreements or didn't say anything at all--
To those of you who have gently set me straight when I needed it--

These flowers are for you.

To those who only pop in on rare occasions,
These are for you also.

Oh, and I mustn't leave out those who've never been here before today--
these are especially for you.

To all the wonderful, unique, incredibly Godly people I have found across the nation
and yes, you, in all those foreign lands--

My heart is thinking about each of you today
and missing you so very much.

Some day we will all rejoice together
but in the meantime............

Would you please rejoice with me today?

Whatever is your favorite mode or method of praise,
Would you join with me and all nature
in crying out our praise to Him.

"How Great Is Our God"

The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
All the earth rejoice

He wraps himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
Trembles at His voice

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God

Age to age He stands
And time is in His hands
Beginning and the end
Beginning and the end

The Godhead Three in One
Father Spirit Son
The Lion and the Lamb
The Lion and the Lamb

Name above all names
Worthy of our praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God

There's just something about sunflowers that make me smile. I count them a very favorite flower. And Chris Tomlin's music is way up there on my favorites list as well. And a favorite friend and sister in the Lord...well, that's YOU, dear lady, that's You!
