Word Filled Wednesday





Lily 012 copy
The lily in this picture is from my yard.  Through the years I transplanted some beautiful lilies from my mother’s yard and from my husband’s grandmother’s yard.  Both of these wonderful women have passed away, but each spring these lilies bloom and provide a beautiful reminder of the many ways that they touched and impacted our lives.  
In Psalms 78 God’s Word encourages us to pass on to each generation the praises of God and to tell of His strength, power and glorious works. Generations are to remember God’s faithfulness and keep alive the faith and hope in Him. 
We will not hide them from their children,
         Telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD,
         And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.
That the generation to come might know them,
         The children who would be born,
That they may arise and declare them to their children,
That they may set their hope in God,
         And not forget the works of God,
         But keep His commandments;

In our day to day lives things can get very hectic.  May we always remember to stop and reflect on the goodness of the Lord and purpose to pass along praise, faith and hope in God to our children and grandchildren.  May the Lord be an everlasting remembrance and a vital, living part of our daily lives.
