I will sing of your steadfast love, O Lord, forever; with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations.
Spring is here, even if the temperatures are still fluctuating. Joy rises in the heart; new life rises. These are reasons enough to praise God. In the next few months, we will celebrate Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and graduations. There may be family picnics for Memorial Day and 4th of July. Perhaps, in addition to the praises that rise naturally and silently in our hearts this season, it would also be a good time to proclaim God’s faithfulness “to all generations.” It can be as simple as telling someone “God has been so good to me, and I wish God’s blessings for you, too.” The gift of those words is not only appropriate for mothers, fathers, and graduates, they’re a gift to God as well.
