I need to Praise the Lord

Let everything that has breath Praise the Lord.  
Psalm 150:6

One of the sure signs of spring, at least in rural farmland where I live, is birds singing early in the morning.  As I've awakened to that several times recently it brings to my mind the verse above.

How often do our children and husbands hear us nag, criticize, complain, gossip, etc?.  These things are easy to do!  But along those same lines how often do they hear us praising the Lord?  There are so many things to praise  God for each and every day!  Our children need to learn from us to Praise him for both the big and little things in life!  Let's face it, there are days when I am just as thankful for not burning dinner as I am for beautiful weather.  

Today I am going to try to Praise God more for the blessings he gives us and I'm going to encourage my family to do the same.  I'm going to make a conscious effort to Praise God out loud each hour today, will you join me?

Heavenly Father,
You bless my family beyond measure each and every day.  Forgive me when I don't acknowledge those blessings.  Thank you for the greatest of all blessings, your son Jesus!
