Sunday Blessings

29 April 2012


 He looks! and ten thousands of angels rejoice,
And myriads wait for His word;
He speaks! and eternity, filled with His voice,
Re-echoes the praise of the Lord.

Dear Shepherd! I hear, and will follow Thy call;
I know the sweet sound of Thy voice;
Restore and defend me, for Thou art my all,
And in Thee I will ever rejoice.

— Excerpt from "O Thou, In Whose Presence" by Joseph Swain

May our rejoicing in our Shepherd and His wonderful love for us last not just on Sundays and even Wednesdays nights but every minute, every hour, every day, and every year of our lives. He sacrificed Himself — gave up His all — for the sake of His children. That alone is reason enough to rejoice until the end of our days.

Have a blessed Lord's Day!
"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul . . ." — Psalm 23:1-3

2 epistles:

  1. "He speaks! and eternity, filled with His voice,
    Re-echoes the praise of the Lord." Absolutely beautiful... Thank you for sharing, Elizabeth Rose! I just love your photo of those fresh green leaves, too.

  2. I love this, Lizzy!

    "He looks! and ten thousands of angels rejoice,And myriads wait for His word" Beautiful."

    What a powerful Savior we have and how wonderful to think that he still considers and love to now end us, His children.

    Love ya!
