Singing Snapshots

Last weekend we enjoyed a very quick ministry tour to Illinois and Indiana. In the short, three day trip we covered many miles and shared in five different services. The Lord really had His hand on each opportunity and we're so grateful for the sweet encouragement of the saints, many safe miles, and and open doors to share!

Glory in His holy name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD!

Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face evermore!

Another specific answer to prayer lately was the addition of new singing outfits. With wedding planning/sewing in full swing -- amongst other ongoing projects -- I really didn't know how we were going to squeeze in a shopping day for another set of much-needed clothing. Usually a new set includes a full day of shopping and at least one additional day of sewing.

But the Lord was so gracious -- one afternoon while wedding shopping, we stumbled across the perfect clothing for us older girls which coordinated with dresses the younger girls already had on hand. After a quick stop at a men's store, we had all the pieces needed for the new outfits -- an all-time record for clothes shopping! He knows our needs!

Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth

Remember His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations,

Sing to the LORD, all the earth; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.

Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.

For the LORD is great and greatly to be praised; He is also to be feared above all gods.

Honor and majesty are before Him; Strength and gladness are in His place.

Give to the LORD, O families of the peoples, Give to the LORD glory and strength.
Give to the LORD the glory due His name;

Verses from 1 Chron 16
