Saturday Blessings

This hymn is one of my favorites:

Praise God from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

It reminds me to give God thanks for the blessings of life. As we sang this beautiful song on Sunday, I thought back to the blessings of the day before.

Thank you, God for a loving husband who enjoys spending time with me so much that he taught me to fish so we could spend even more time together.


Thank you, God for the beauty of the early morning.


For the way the light is soft and warm.


For revealing your power and divine nature in what you have made.


Thank you for all blessings, both great and small.


Help me to never take any of them for granted.

  1. THANK YOU FOR THE REMINDER AND THE PICTURES. SOMETIMES WE GET CAUGHT UP IN ASKING FOR THINGS WE FORGET TO ASK THANK GOD FOR WHAT WE HAVE.

  11. What a beautiful post, Tracy! I love the Doxology hymn. Often when I'm out walking my little dog late at night, I'll look up at the stars and want to sing out praises to God. My memory's not great for the words of many of them, but I can always count on remembering the words to that one, and I'll sing it out to the Lord as I walk.

    The pictures were beautiful!

  21. Growing up, we sang this praise every Sunday. It's still a favorite...if I am down in the dumps, singing this always raises my spirit.

  22. I love that hymn also! Just right for Thanksgiving! When I was a child
    we called that song "Doxology".
    My childhood church sang that while the deacons passed the plate. Now
    churches around here have gone contemporary and don't select the old hymns as much.
