God Has Smiled on All of Us~

Photo Copyright Prayer Notes by Cynthia, LLC

Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals!

Good Morning Friends,
     Today, I am linking up with a few of my favorite blogs. It is a blessing to be able to write and express my feelings, today. I take nothing for granted....  I am so thankful for my life and my experiences, whether they have been uplifting or torturous, for they have made me who I am, today, a child of God.

     I feel the Lord working and moving in me when I am still, quiet and open.  It takes work for me to get to this place and  sometimes, the interruptions are plentiful. But, it is worth the work to get there. When I am in this place, I find myself NOT asking, praying, lamenting or worrying. I just "soak-up" His Presence and "hold-on." You know, this is the way I live and survive. It's a place of peace and praise. I treasure this time, as it is my Soul Food. I am not fully nourished without it and my day is disturbed when I miss it. My soul mourns and my perspective is self-centered when I forgo my communion with Him.

     After my stillness with the Lord, I spend my day creating "Praise-Art" and enjoying songs of praise, in the process. Today, I will share a few songs of praise that lift and speak to my heart and soul. I hope you enjoy them, too. Be blessed my friends~

Jeremiah 29:11

New International Version (NIV)
 For I know the plans I have for you,” 
declares the Lord
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, 
plans to give you hope and a future."
