Today we went to our church--pictured above. I am so glad we have a day of rest to spend resting, worshipping, and listening to God. I have been so thankful for our church because It not only has the liturgy--the form of worship; but it has the power of worship. I can not tell you what this has meant to me. I am thankful for being able to pray, sing, celebrate communion and seek his face. Love the way our communion starts:
"All glory be to thee, Almighty God, our heavenly Father, for that thou, of thy tender mercy, didst give thine only Son Jesus Christ to suffer death upon the cross for our redemption; who made there by his one oblation of himself once offered, a full, perfect, and sufficient sacrifice, oblation, and satisfaction, for the sins of the whole world; and did institute, and in his holy gospel command us to continue, a perpetual memory of that his precious death and sacrifice, until his coming again."
Sundays are full of coffee and talks; thankful to have times to talk with my kids by phone and webcam
And to sit out on the rockers with my hubby and talk about the hymns, the word, our kids, our dreams, etc.
Blessed be God for His good gifts. Blessed be Him for giving us hearts that sing in the fullness of His presence. Blessed be God for his outworking of faith in our children. Blessed be Godfor equipping so many to preach His Word for the edification of the saints the world over. Blessed be God for the beauty of his redemption and the wonder of all that the future holds in eternity to come.
