Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
Praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
Praise him according to his excellent greatness!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
My two oldest daughters (6 and 4) have started this thing where if someone says "Amen" they say, "Praise the Lord!" I know they got it from church which is a good place to pick things up :)
Sometimes saying "Praise the Lord" is hard. Sometimes its easy to type, but hard to say outloud.
Psalm 150 is all about the times/places we should praise God... if you read it all, basically it's everywhere/everytime/all the time.
Think about it, is God any more or less awesome at different times of the day or year. Now that Christmas and Thanksgiving are over, can we just hold in our thanks and praise?
Of course not!
(though it's hard to forget at times now that the holidays are over...)
This verse also reminded me of a song my husband used to sing when we were young sprouts (well, probably 20 year olds) at the youth choir at church. I couldn't find the exact one I was looking for (probably because I hear my husband's voice in my head), but it's a good verson none-the-less.
(BTW, click on these youtube links.. show the video makers some love)
God Bless You :)
