In the end...all you're left saying is "Hallelujah!" many emotions to feel right now...I just finished bawling over a video of some old friends meeting their two Ethiopian children for the first time...before that I was bawling about my husband leaving for a missions trip tomorrow and playing out a movie plot in my head...something like p.s. i love you or up close and personal.  I'm also not feeling well...but in spite of it all I am reminded of the song that was playing during my friend's video called "Praise to the Lord, the Almighty".  It's an old hymn that I remember trying to pound out on the piano.  In the end...all you're left saying is "Hallelujah!"  So as I go to bed...I choose to entrust once again, my life, my husband, my friends, and all circumstances to Him...and just say..."Hallelujah!"

Praise to the Lord,
The Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him,
For He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear,
Now to His temple draw near;
Praise Him in glad adoration.

Praise to the Lord,
Who over all things so wondrously reigneth,
Shelters thee under His wings,
Yea, so gently sustaineth!
Hast thou not seen
How all your longings have been
Granted in what He ordaineth?

Praise to the Lord,
Who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
Surely His goodness
And mercy here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do,
If with His love He befriend thee.

Praise to the Lord,
O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath,
Come now with praises before Him.
Let the Amen
Sound from His people again,
Gladly for aye we adore Him.

  1. Praying for the trip they are taking tomorrow! I hope you feel better soon. I always hate when Tim leaves me over night, so I always have one of my sisters come stay with me! Praying..
