Six Words Saturday: Let's Give The Lord A Handclap!


Today for Six Words Saturday I am posting the words...
Let's Give The Lord A Handclap!





My sister simply loved the beauty of creation. When she would see something like a beautiful tree, or the vast ocean, or a snow topped mountain, she would say..."Let's give the Lord a handclap!" And then we would clap our hands and praise the Lord.

Yesterday as my husband and I were driving through town we saw so many beautiful Bradford Pear trees in bloom, and some of them were just breath taking...so I said..."Let's Give The Lord A Handclap!"...and we did. We gave praise to the Lord in memory of my sister who went to heaven two years ago.

She left me a gift... her legacy of loving and praising the Lord by appreciating His creation! Now she sees the beauty and glory of heaven and I am sure she is praising the God she loves!

What a neat idea...love the idea for clapping for the Lord. Thanks for stopping by Jeremiah 29:11 and leaving a comment. I really like the song "Blessings", too. I heard it on the radio yesterday and just had to cry because of trials we're going thru...and knowing they're only gonna serve to strengthen us!! HOPE you have a great week!

Hi Linda,
The pear trees are truly beautiful. We are a long way off from anything blooming here, so this was lovely to see.
Thank you so much for coming by and leaving such kind words for me. I am happy to meet you.
To answer your question...my husband really does love the white brightness of our home and even all the feminine touches. His favorite spot in the house is exactly where little Maddie is sitting (maining because it is right in front of the TV)LOL!
He even shows the house off to his cop buddies every chance he gets.(he's a police officer, although retiring soon)
sending hugs
