Praise God!

      The day after... 

      To see such love to the lovers expressed in service... hard work... coordination... practice... prayers... faith... from so many precious people. It's a memory that I will cherish. 

      Words fail. What can I say but Praise God? 

            Indeed, words may fail, but our God will not. Did not. Has not. No, never.

Praise God.

Happy Sabbath!

Happy Sabbath day of rest!
- Of all the week the utmost best
This day contains sweet peace for all,
Of those who heed its' restful call
To end a week so full and long,
Begin it's hours with joyful song
For 'tis the day to spend with One,
Who loves us as His only Son!

Blessed are they...

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness...

For all whose hearts are yearning food,
A table has been set
It's bounties fill the multitude,
With surplus yet unmet
But to receive of Heaven's fare,
A hungered you must be
Desiring in the meal to share,
Is for fulfillment key

For some it's thirst that overwhelms,
-That's never satisfied 
But there is water from the realms,
Of One who will provide 
This living, flowing stream of streams,
Holds more than worlds could need
But though it bountifully teems,
Thirst must compel indeed

A heart will not desire sup,
That knows no need of food
Nor will it seek a laden cup,
If thirst it's never viewed
Then give me hunger, grant me thirst,
That Lord, for You I'll crave
Oh may my soul's desire burst,
With longings that You gave!

...for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6
