Praise be to God

 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade—kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.

1 Peter 1:3-5

When we consider all that He has done for us, how can we not be filled with praise?  When we consider our great hope of eternal life, how can we not be filled with praise?  When we reflect on all of our blessings, how can we not be filled with praise?

Praise for God is a daily, regular and constant thing; can we really be expected to remain silent?

    Today is Labor Day – a day of celebration of people’s hard work. May God bless those that work hard for their families and continue to bless them with abundance. Today – I found out Chevyl couldn’t meet me to go to Old Town Alexandria. I was going to mope around here, but decided to take my bible and go for a walk. I read from Psalm 98 – “Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things” – so I have courage to go out on my own today and finished my walk, swam and I am doing laundry. When I am finished I am taking the train down to Old Town and having a late lunch or early dinner and then return. I have to be able to function in this world (here in our Nation’s capital. May God bless everyone who hears God’s words today and praise Don for giving us the world in 1 Peter 1.
