Celebrate, Jesus, Celebrate!

Praise God, Alli is celebrating her 4th birthday! Join me:
Praise God from whom all Blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above the heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, A-----men.

Don't know if anybody other than Baptists do that one, but it's a regular around the southern baptist churches. And that song rings in my heart tonight as I think about the journey that has brought us to where we are now- celebrating Alli's 4th birthday. As anyone who's followed this blog knows, we almost lost the opportunity to ever celebrate another birthday with Alli when she fell from our 2nd story balcony October 9, 2008. We went through 6 months of treatment and recovery, and ultimately received an amazing Holy touch from the Master's Hand upon her little body. Alli has been healed through the fervent prayers of God's people by the loving, merciful touch of my Savior's Hand. I know that He is the ONLY reason we are able to celebrate this precious birthday. I know that without Him, I would have lost my baby girl the night of that tragic accident. I know that it is no coincidence that Alli became fully conscious & alert for the first time on a Sunday morning, just a few minutes after 11, when churches from New York to Florida were united in prayer for her provision. And I know that every hurdle we climbed from that night through the next 6 months, were Victories in Jesus. And I know that I know that I know that He carried me through a time in which I could not walk...
Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and Is, and Is to come
With all creation I sing
Praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything, and I will adore you...

Lutherans call the "Praise God from whom all blessing flow..." to be the Doxology. We sing it at the end of a lot of things and at a moment of praise.
God is faithful and He has his hand on your family! :)

Yes, my Floridian friend, we baptists too call it the Doxology. Glad to know you Lutheran's are in on it! Love you!!!
