This Week’s Memory Verse: P is for…
“Praise him, sun and moon, praise Him all you shining stars!” -Psalm 148:3
(Last year, we memorized this whole chapter as a family and included portions in Hawaiian. This particular verse reads “E halelelu aku ia ia, e ka la, a me ka mahina, E halelu aku ia ia, e na hoku malamalama a pau.”)
Hymn of the Week: “Beneath the Cross of Jesus” (Clephane/Maker)
Beneath the cross of Jesus I fain would take my stand
The shadow of a mighty Rock within a weary land;
A home within the wilderness, a rest upon the way,
From the burning of the noon-tide heat, and the burden of the day.
Upon that cross of Jesus mine eye at times can see
The very dying form of One who suffered there for me;
And from my smitten heart with tears two wonders I confess-
The wonders of redeeming love and my unworthiness.
I take, O cross, thy shadow for my abiding place;
I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of His face;
Content to let the world go by, to know no gain nor loss,
My sinful self my only shame, my glory all the cross.
(E halelu aku oukou ia Lehova!)

This has been such a joy to follow. I don’t comment all the time but just know we are keeping tabs anyway! Did the boys get their first issue of Montana Outdoors yet?
They’ve already “read” it, cover to cover! Thanks Uncle Jody!
I love your blog. Will definitely be visiting often!
Great week of praise. I love this blog too! (Especially when little hands add their comments and creative artwork).
We have practiced singing Psalm 148. Love it! How wonderful it is that you grew up without TV. I always love reading the comments from your children’s grandparents. I know they delight in seeing the fruit of their faithfulness and labors in their grandchildren! I sometimes think about the generations to come and the importance of my decisions, the impact they will have on my children’s children and even more! Whew! 🙂 Interesting how that works…. 😉
Singing the Psalms is such a wonderfully effective way of hiding God’s Word in our hearts and I bet it sounds beautiful, too! I know it does in God’s ears!
