This is a verse that I learned a young girl in fact I learned a song (a round) that went with this song. I love this song but not always do I think about it. When the days of winter get cold, the water pipes break, the car wont run, and I just have a bad day not always do I remember to give praises to God. I need to remember no matter the day the truth is that he did make it and he is worthy of all the praise.

Today is Martin Luther King Day and Tomorrow we celebrate the inauguration of Obama. I believe that Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud of us. NOt only him but our Lord up above in heaven I believe would also be happy. He created us to love each other and to praise him and I teach my children everyday. So today take a minute and ponder the relationships going on in this great word of ours

2. Are you able to ignore a ringing telephone? How often do you allow a ringing phone to go to voice mail? Do you answer your cell phone, out in public, every time it rings? Or do you silence it and get back to it when you’re in a more private area? How often would you say you’re on your home phone? Your cell phone? Do you like talking on the phone or do you view it as a necessary communication tool?
for me it is hard to ignore a ringing phone thank goodness it has a silencer. I only allow this to happen if i do not know the number. Yes (not in church or somewhere silent). no home phone only cell phone. I talk on phone not as much as teens but I do use phone quite often
