Happy Day!

I had the coolest experience tonight so I just had to share. :)
It's the 4th of July still as I write this. I left my parents house
for the hour drive back up the mountain just a little before 10pm.
So I got to see all the "finale" fireworks of the shows from each
town. I had this old cd in playing of choir songs from the last few
years. I was just awed at the mood it set. You know I really did
spend the day being thankful for our country, my family, our freedom,
my friends in the service and total strangers thousands of miles away
fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. But on the way home the only words
I could put together were "God you are so good." Over and over again
I was singing about His holiness, His faithfulness, His mercy and
goodness with bright sparkles and lightning shining in front of me.
It was awesome in the truest sense of that word. God is good. He's
good whether we feel it or not. He is good on the good days, but He
is still good on the bad days. So I'll leave you with some of His
names, because that is how I finished my drive! Praise Him people.
He is:
Wonderful, Glorious, Holy and Righteous, Victorious, Conqueror,
Triumphant and Mighty, Healer, Deliver, Shield and Defense, Strong
Tower and My Best Friend, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Soon Coming King,
Alpha, Omega, Lord of Everything!!!
Holy, Holy, Holy is your name
"In that day you will say: "Give thanks to the LORD, call on his
name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim
that his name is exalted."- Isaiah 12:4
