“Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.” ~Psalm 150:6
When the alarm clock goes off in the quiet pre-dawn, praise the Lord.
When the shower water’s cold, praise the Lord.
When you burn the toast and have to turn the milk carton upside down to drain the last drops, praise the Lord.
When a child calls “Mama” for the 347th time that day….and it’s only 9am, praise the Lord.
When you’re in the farthest back corner of Walmart and your potty-training child needs to use the restroom, praise the Lord.
When traffic comes to a standstill and you’re already running late, praise the Lord.
When no child naps and the afternoon stretches longer than your patience, praise the Lord
When a child comes home from school with a hole in the knee of his pants, praise the Lord.
When the laundry piles up and dirty dishes fill the sink, praise the Lord.
When you crawl in the bed at night and worries creep into the outskirts of your mind, praise the Lord.
When you get an unexpected check in the mail and you walk right into the doctor’s office without a wait and your husband washes the dishes after supper and the kids go to bed without a struggle….praise the Lord then, too.
