Thankful and Soaring On Eagles Wings

This is one of my favourite psalms, Psalm 91.  I wanted to share this beautiful song with you. It has become popular at funerals and we attended one yesterday for a family friend's husband. May his soul rest in peace in the bosom of Our Lord.

So much to be grateful to God for.. most of all for the beautiful promises in this Psalm that He is ever-faithful to. I hope this song gives any of you who needs it the comfort and courage that it always gives to me. The chorus is based on Isaiah 40:31.

111. A good and honest mechanic...God bless him!
112. Help of relatives  in time of need.
113. Time off from driving..peace!
114. Quiet time with the Lord where he knits back my frazzled nerves.
115. Creative daughters who put together their little sister's Easter hat for her school's  hat party.
116. A daughter who loves making oatmeal coconut cookies (my waistline isn't very happy with me)
117. Four year old's scribbles all over the house (I think we have a future artist on our hands!)
118. Another blogger's words which show me how blessed I am.
119. Words of wisdom from my daughter's future school principal.
120. A spontaneous outing for me and the girls.
121. Rain... rain.. rain.. so welcome and unexpected in a dry season..Praise God! (My yard is actually green and not brown like it usually is this time of year)
122. Strong arms and gentle words.
123. Skype calls from daughter in college (sorry, but always have to be thankful for this one!)
124. His Amazing Grace... always healing, always comforting.
125. His Amazing Grace.. always providing, always faithful
126. Easter Vacation and a break from the routine.
127. Easter Vacation and having my girls, all except one, at home with me.
128. Watching my 14 year old galloping around like a big child again with her little sister.
129. Hearing squeals and giggles as my husband and youngest have a pillow fight through the house.
130. Forgiveness and unconditional love.

God bless all of you my friends. May your day be filled with love and laughter and thanksgiving to a faithful, constant and loving God. Shine on, shine strong for Jesus!

If you have any prayer requests you would like me to offer on your behalf tomorrow when I go before God's throne, please let me know. I'll be happy to add your request to my prayer list..

Hi Lisa Maria,

Love the list today! I had to pop over since you commented on my blog. I'm a bit past the age for a hideout too. ;) 24, but still love all things sweet and romantic. My greenhouse is my little chateau. I spend quite a bit of time in it and take pleasure in the plants and alone time. But some shabby chicness might add a nice touch too!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Loved reading everyone of your gifts. Wish I could come over and eat oatmeal cookies with you:)
I applied for a nanny job to help with college expenses. The mother is going to call me in a couple of days about it. I would love for you to pray about this with me.
I will be thinking of you again tomorrow and pray blessings on your quiet time with Him.

Such a beautiful list today! Loved the pillow fight thing. I can remember squeals of laughter as feathers went flying everywhere when I was a kid. Yes, back then, all pillows had feathers!!!! And that Skype thing --- isn't it just the greatest thing ever?????

Lisa Maria said...

Hi Cora

Thanks for visiting my blog today.. yes I love Skype.. I don't know how mothers coped with college-gone children in the past! Question though.. did you have to pick up all the feathers and re-stuff the pillows? :)

I realise that a lot of people may think that I don't respond to my commentators. I actually reply via e-mail.. but I decided that I would respond here too so people don't get the wrong idea.

Kristin... I replied via e-mail ;-)
Melanie... nice to meet a fellow "frazzled" lol! I've also replied via e-m. The buttons are so cute.. hope other people check them out.
h.rae... I've responded via e-m already but let me just tell you that you guys have to check out her blog.

My thanks to Sonya and Fringegirl for their lovely comments too.
