"Blessed are you, O Lord, the God of our fathers, praiseworthy and exalted above all forever..."
Pray-as-You-Go had a lovely little exercise surrounding this today...inviting us to think about what we would praise God for on this day. That's easy for me, having just spent a fabulous weekend with three out of four of my kids! I was thinking how funny it is: I did a good deal of pondering and nourishing my relationship with God in my early twenties. Then busy family life began and I was caught up in a whirlwind of all of that for thirty years. Now, here I am again, on my own pondering and nourishing my relationship with God. These God-times are like bookends of my life--times of awareness, while the years in between are somewhat of a blur to me. I spend time this late-Lenten Wednesday praising God for it all. I relish each phase, each period of life, as I look back. I see how God was there through it all, even as I was so caught up living a busy life. The constant through it all is God...who is definitely praiseworthy and exalted forever! Let's all ask ourselves today...what do we praise God for this very day? Love, heidi
