PSALM 98:4
"Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth; break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises."

I awoke earlier than I had liked this morning when I heard a loud noise outside of my bedroom window. Normally, a loud car driving by, would not awaken me, but this morning it did. Noises can be inconvenient and annoying!
Today, on THANKFUL THURSDAY, I want to share with you some NOISES that I am thankful for...

1. I'M THANKFUL for the noise of cheerping birds early in the reminds me of God's beautiful creation!

2. I'M THANKFUL for the noise of whining and crying of young is a reminder to me that my children will only be in my care for a very short time!

3. I'M THANKFUL for the awful noise of squeeling that my old, rusty car reminds me how blessed I am to have a car to drive!

4. I'M THANKFUL for the noise of sirens that cause me to pull over and be late for is a reminder to me how blessed I am that I am not on the way to the hospital!

5. I'M THANKFUL for the noise of loud music at youth night in reminds me how blessed we are to live in a place that we can worship freely, without fear, and out in the open. It also reminds me how glad I am that the youth are in God's house and not out on the street!

6. I'M also THANKFUL for the reminds me that it is in my stillness before the Lord that He will lead and guide me!

I'm thankful for the noise of gunfire here on our post, even when it's late into the reminds me of the blessing of freedom we have and those willing to sacrifice even their life so that we can be free. It also reminds me to pray for our Soldiers out there in harm's way.

God really showed me how to look at all that noise around me in a different way. I am like you and often say "stop all the noise", and the biggest noise maker I hate is the television blaring all of the time! I am sure there is something I can be thankful for about the TV but can't think of it right now. ha ha

love Laurie

WOW! Your comment brought a lump to my throat! Thank you for stopping by today and sharing many of us are not that close to our soldiers to actually hear the sounds and what a great reminder to us to be thankful for their sacrifice so we can live in peace!God bless - Laurie

Right now I'm listening to the noise of two guitars being tuned and one actually making beautiful music that my daughter is playing and singing with. How I wish the tuning would end so we can get on with the beautiful sound of a tuned guitar...I think there's an illustration in that somewhere! :)
