So Grateful

I’m grateful today.  My family has been so blessed.  Today we are fasting.  My kids fast.  I am so grateful for their good examples, their faith, and their goodness.  I have been so blessed in this life.  I don’t know why, but I am grateful.  Today when we were talking about whether or not our Heavenly Father will heal the person for whom we are fasting, Becca reminded me that we must have trials in this life.  She is reminding me that even if our petition isn’t granted the way we want, there is a Plan of Happiness and we will go home one day.  Thanks Bec.

Another favorite song by Kari Jobe.  This one is called Joyfully.  It’s #4 on the playlist here.  I love to hear my kids singing good music.  There is so much good out there why waste our time on anything else?  :)  I love to hear Becca singing.  She has a beautiful alto voice.  She doesn’t sing often.  She is more quiet and shy than her sisters.    I love to hear her sing this song.  

You lead me by the waters still
You lay me down to rest upon your faithfulness
My shepherd, simply take my hand
Your song restores my soul
For Your name, You make me whole


Joyfully I lift my voice in praise to Thee
With heaven watching over me, I raise my hands up high
Your Majesty gently washes over me
Makes my heart begin to sing joyfully


No shadow ever shall I fear
Your peace, my heart will know
My cup it overflows
Your goodness chases after me
Your mercy and your grace will be my dwelling place


Joyfully I lift my voice in praise to Thee
With heaven watching over me,
I raise my hands up high
Your Majesty gently washes over me
Makes my heart begin to sing joyfully


I will sing from the mountain top
I will sing, I am overcome, I will sing making melodies
I will sing from the valley low
I will sing because of Your love, I will sing
You're my king, I will sing


Joyfully I lift my voice in praise to Thee
With heaven watching over me, I raise my hands up high
Your Majesty gently washes over me
Makes my heart begin to sing joyfully
Joyfully, joyfully, joyfully

I am so grateful for a family that understands the Plan of Salvation.
I started the Chemo today, and so far so good. No sickness, No Anxiety, but total calm. Thanks for your love.
