Psalm 100
"Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations."

  • An incredible man of God. A man of honor and integrity and a man who is able to surprise me by flying in for a short weekend...just because he missed me!!! A man that makes me feel special and beautiful often. A man that I can trust, depend upon and feel safe around. A man that makes me laugh and brings perspective as needed/when asked.
Well these are just a few of the many, many, many blessings and life moments that I am beyond thankful for.
