Psalm of Thanksgiving and Christmas Lights

I know that the above verse only quotes Verse 1 and Verse 26, but I guess I'm strange, because I feel if your going to quote a passage, quote the whole thing, Unless of course it's tremendously long like Psalm 119. (I would have to devote my whole post to that chapter if I tried to quote the complete chapter. Anyway, this close after Thanksgiving, I felt like giving God some extra thanks. He has been so good to me. Especially this past year. (He's always good to me, but this year we've been extremely blessed.

Psalm 136 (in it's entirety)

Thanksgiving to God for His Enduring Mercy
Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endureth forever.
Oh, give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy endureth forever.
Oh, give thanks to the LORD of lords! For His mercy endureth forever:
To Him who alone does great wonders, For His mercy endureth forever;
To Him who by wisdom made the heavens, For His mercy endureth forever;
To Him who laid out the earth above the waters, For His mercy endureth forever--
To Him who made great lights, For His mercy endureth forever--
The sun to rule by day, For His mercy endureth forever;
The moon and stars to rule by night, For His mercy endureth forever;
To Him who struck Egypt in their first-born, His mercy endureth forever;
And brought out Israel from among them, For His mercy endureth forever;
With a strong hand, and with an outstretched arm, For His mercy endureth forever;
To Him who divided the Red Sea in two, For His mercy endureth forever;
And made Israel pass through the midst of it, For His mercy endureth forever;
But overthrew Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea, For His mercy endureth forever
To Him who led His people through the wilderness, For His mercy endureth forever;
To Him who struck down great kings, For His mercy endureth forever;
And slew famous kings, For His mercy endureth forever;
Sihon, King of the Amorites, For His mercy endureth forever;
And Og, king of Bashan, For His mercy endureth forever;
And gave their land as a heritage, For His mercy endureth forever;
A heritage to Israel His servant, For His mercy endureth forever.
Who remembered us in our lowly state, For His mercy endureth forever;
And His rescued us from our enemies, For His mercy endureth forever;
Who gives food to all flesh, For His mercy endureth forever.
Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven! For His mercy endureth forever.

Good Evening to All!

Tonight, the tour of my Branson trip is going to take us through the "Trail of Lights". They were beautiful even though it didn't seem to last long. It was supposed to be 21/2 miles, but it really didn't seem that long. Anyway, here we go.



These lights were almost all animated. They were really pretty. I'm not going to show all of them, because I want to leave some for my Christmas Post.

It was a 2 1/2 mile long stretch of road with all of these lights set up. There were no houses around.







There were several of these "Trail of Lights in different locations of the city, I believe. I would have liked to seen more, but the traffic was horrendous, so I didn't dare mention it to hubby, because I knew his response would be for me to drive, and I would not attempt to do so in that kind of traffic.














In the picture below, the horses' legs actually looked like they
were galloping. That silver thing in the lower left is the car mirror.
My camera wouldn't work right, so hubby ended up driving
and taking pictures on his side of the road, then I would use
his camera and take them on my side. Great fun! HAHA....












In the picture below, the drummer was actually
playing the drum.













Good Night to All and May God Bless!

Christmas Lights Look at the Christmas Lights
There is nothing that beats the joy of a child excited by something so easy to do.
Thanks for sharing with us.
