Rain and Gratitude

Thank YOU for the comments
on our anniversary. You deeply

Thinking of the Gratitude
Community through Holy
Experience as it rained this
morning and through out the

GREAT news that a friend's husband
sold a house! I praise God for His
faithfulness to provide as we ask for
His mercies new every morning.

Spurgeon's Evening Devotion

Have you had no deliverances?
Have you passed through no rivers,
supported by the divine presence?
Have you walked through no fires unharmed?
Have you had no manifestations?
Have you had no choice favors?
The God who gave Solomon the desire of his heart,
hath he never listened to you and answered
your requests?
That God of lavish bounty of whom David sang,
“Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things,”
hath he never satiated you with fatness?
Have you never been made to lie down in green pastures?
Have you never been led by the still waters?
Surely the goodness of God has been the same
to us as to the saints of old.

Let us, then, weave his mercies into a song.

Let us take the pure gold of thankfulness,
and the jewels of praise and make them into
another crown for the head of Jesus.

Let our souls give forth music as sweet and
as exhilarating as came from
David’s harp, while we praise the Lord whose
mercy endureth forever

Wonderful quote from Spurgeon.

And belated congratulations on your anniversary! As you were on your honeymoon, I was preparing to give birth....just a few days later, to my son and only child, who will be 31 next week. Seems like several lifetimes ago!

Oh Sara ~~~ hope he has a wonderful birthday and I'm sure he blesses you! Yes, it does seem like lifetimes ago. You made me smile in that understanding.
