Praise!

Psalm 100

Make a joyful nose to the LORD, all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into His presence with singing!

Know that the LORD, He is God!
It is He who made us, and we are His;
we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter His gates with thanksgiving, 
and His courts with praise!
Give thanks to Him; bless His name!

For the LORD is good;
His steadfast love endures forever,
and His faithfulness to all generations.

My heart is overflowing in praise.  God is so good.  I have had many struggles the last few years, but God has shown Himself faithful again and again and again.

Tomorrow I will be singing my first solo in church in over two years. With the health struggles I had the last few years, my voice was not dependable.  It would come and go and most of the time I was unable to sing.  For those that know me, you know how difficult that has been for me. I missed singing praises to my wonderful Savior.

My voice is returning.  It still isn't as it was, but I am so thankful that I can once again sing for Him.

Thanks Erin! I sure needed that reminder of all the reasons I can give thanks to the Lord. It's been a rough day - emotionally, physically, mentally, etc. Just got online for a few moments to catch up and then laundry and bed. But after being reminded of praising our Savior - I think I will also take the time to read the Bible and pray. I shouldn't neglect that. (btw - I would LOVE to hear you sing)!

I echo this awesomeness of this answer to prayer! God is good!
My kiddos will be in Creston for Balloon Days this weekend! You're gonna love it! (if the weather cooperates!)
