It has been 10 months today since the Lord filled our hearts with exceeding joy at the marriage of our Luke and Chantée. Since then, our families have been blessed with many seasons of sweet fellowship that bind our hearts together in heaven-born love.
"Let my mouth be filled with Thy praise and with Thy honor all the day." Ps. 71:8
"Because Thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise Thee." Ps. 63:3
"Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee: and let such as love Thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified." Ps. 70:4
We have experienced Your salvation, oh Lord! Thank You for rescuing our souls from the pit of sin and selfishness and bathing our lives in love. Cause our souls to "follow hard after You" (Ps. 63:8) even in times of perplexity and grief--as hard as we are inspired to do so in these days of rejoicing. "Strengthen, oh God, that which Thou hast wrought for us." Ps. 68:28b
"I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving. The humble shall see this and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God." P. 69:30,32
