Praise, Praise to the Father

Those five words remind me of one of the best weeks I ever had, the week we went to Family Camp in Oregon.  Every day before meals we sang a prayer:

Praise, praise to the Father
Praise, praise to the Son
Praise, praise to the Spirit
All praise to the three in one

Bless each of our families
Bless this food we eat
May we be a blessing
To all that we meet

Amen.

It was such a sweet way to give all the glory and honor to God before each time we ate.  As we enter the Christmas season, I want to remember to praise God in everything I do.  So, this Christmas season, I will be posting  my praises to God and my thankfulness for what he has done for me.  I hope that this will encourage you and remind you of how great and powerful our God is.

Praise, Praise #1
God, I praise you for your work in my little sister Sunshine's life.  She has had lots of the struggles in the last three years, but I see your power and strength in the way you have turned her life around.  I am filled with such joy to see her obeying you and enjoying life.
