Praise for the King!
When life becomes dark and I succumb to misery, the only solution is to praise God. Gratitude is the antidote to sadness. So it is with gratitude to Jennifer at My Chocolate Heart for this fabulous MEME that gives me pause to reflect upon all of the good things that God has done for me.
PRAISE for kind words of comfort and love from friends who care.
PRAISE for my children who sing so well and share their gifts with others.
PRAISE for a full pantry with healthy foods for my family.
PRAISE for the smiles of children.
PRAISE for a warm house and comfortable clothes when so many go without.
PRAISE for jars and jars of grape jelly to share with friends and family.
PRAISE for the gift of my Catholic Faith and the never ending love of Christ my King.
Praise for the King
In the dark days of winter,
a light shines forth
golden crown of glory
captivates my eyes
covering yesterday's pain.
Though marks of pain are lasting
the sorrow melts away
with the brilliance and majesty
of my wondrous Lord
who loves me,
Jesus Christ the King!
