Songs that Inspire: Great is Thy Faithfulness

There’s nothing like a song to inspire me. Songs, poetry, nature and art are some of the things that inspire me. And yes, the Word of God.

One of the songs, actually, a hymn that particularly blesses and inspires me is Great is Thy Faithfulness. I heard the song when I was already in my teens as it was sung in church. And honestly, I can almost memorize all the lyrics of this song since it has inspired me even then and yes, until now. I also made sure that it was one of the songs sung at my wedding 🙂

A couple of years back, a friend of mine gave me a CD of songs from the group, Selah. I was really pleased because among the songs in the CD is this beautiful hymn.  Now, just maybe, this song will also inspire you wherever you are right now. Below is the live version of Selah singing Great is Thy Faithfulness.

Tonight, unity for a greater cause will once again take place.

From 8:30-9:30 pm (Philippine local time), my husband and I will be joining that cause. We will turn the lights out and keep the power off in our home, this side of Mindanao, Philippines and contribute what we can in our little way to Earth Hour 2014.

Check out more information on Earth Hour 2014 at earthhour.org. And yes, see you under the stars 🙂

Here Comes the Month of March

The month of March signals the beginning of summer days here in my part of the world. And I look forward to less rain but at the same time, I hope it will not be too hot as well 🙂 Oh, well, we all have these ideas as to how weather should be and yet we know, only God holds the keys to weather doors 🙂

When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar;
    he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth.
He sends lightning with the rain
    and brings out the wind from his storehouses.
Jeremiah 10:13

Before, we totally say good bye to February 2014, let me share just a couple of shots of this love month 🙂

A Blessed 2014

Before we know it, we have to bid goodbye to 2013! As we all say, how time quickly flies!

2013 for me personally has its share of joys as well as challenges. But I am thankful that with God’s grace, I could move on this year with renewed hope and expectation 🙂

I wish you, dear reader, a blessed 2014! A year of new opportunities, new hopes and joys as well as strength and wisdom to face this year.

I am also sharing this video below of Hillsong Australia’s song, Blessed. The song features verses from Psalm 84, a psalm which is very close to my heart 🙂  Be blessed and be a blessing this 2014!!
