Good afternoon and happy Sunday! I hope you all have enjoyed a fantastic weekend and that it continues through the day! It’s been a crazy busy weekend for us, but VERY enjoyable! We spent Friday night visiting with friends. It was supposed to be a campfire outing, but the downpour rain and storms made that not happen. It was still nice to get together for some drinks and chat. I worked on Saturday, but immediately after we were off to our friends house for their good-bye party! Good thing we will see them on Wednesday again, so it wasn’t really good-bye! 🙂 If you remember from my last blog post, our friends are moving to Africa! It’s been wonderful to get to know them and pray for them as they leave on this amazing adventure!
This morning we went to an amazing church service, which I will try and recap sometime this week….it was too good not to share! We followed it up by an awesome trip to the dog park with Telli! She had so much fun bounding through the water and playing with the other dogs!
My favorite song at the moment- Chris Tomlin-How Great is Our God-World Edition
This song has been out for awhile, and I have loved it ever since I initially heard it, but there is something different about the song lately. It’s my jam…no joke. I have worked out to it, it pumps me up on my way to work, I listen to it at home, every where..I love it! It’s truly a song that stands true to it’s title, “How Great is Our God.” He is so great! And regardless where you are at in life, what your relationship with Christ is like, where you live in the world, what language you speak, what you look like….our God is SO Great and loves us the same!
He loves us unconditionally.
He gives us strength when we feel weak.
He shows the light when we only see darkness.
When we mess up, He shows His grace.
When we fall down, He picks us up.
He shows us His original artwork everyday when the sun rises and the sun sets.
He shows His creation by the beauty of this Earth.
We really do serve a wonderful, loving, amazing and GREAT God!
I hope you enjoy the song as much as I do!
And if you want to hear Chris Tomlin’s explanation of how he came up with the idea of the world version of his original song and the inspiration behind it, you can see it here. It truly is it’s own work of God and how amazing he is.
Now for the funny part of this morning and this song…….
As we were driving home from church this morning, I told Nate I wanted to listen to that song, so we played it and I sang along at the top of my lungs (like I always do), but this was the first time I had an audience. Nate looked at me and laughed. I knew exactly what he was thinking, she is singing to this song like she knows the words she’s singing, and the language she’s singing. Yes Nate, your right…..and God doesn’t care! 😉 As long as I’m singing to him, right? Or attempting in this case? Well, then he said something that we laughed so hard at for the next 20 minutes….”You sound like Joey on the Friends episode that he thinks he is speaking French! You are singing like you know African and Portuguese!”
I hope that leads you with a smile the rest of the day. Remember to praise our God always and see the beauty and grace he surrounds us with everyday!
❤ God Bless
