Wednesday in the Word-Bless the Lord

Recently on one my little trips to Dollar Tree I spotted this cute little candle holder. I especially liked it because it has Scripture inside the candle holder.

I thought of several ways to use this. My first thought was to buy several and to use them with Easter decoration with cute little candles in them. 

Then I thought, "this would make a great little gift filled with malt ball Easter eggs or jelly beans".

Another idea was to use at each table place setting and place the silverware in it....YES, my mind thinks like this.....Different and I like different!

I love the  verse inside....

Psalm 103:2 says,  Praise the Lord, my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits— 

One commentary said the meaning of this verse was;
Bless the Lord, O my soul - The repetition here denotes the intensity or earnestness of the wish or desire of the psalmist. It is an emphatic calling upon his soul, that is, himself, never to forget the many favors which God was continually conferring upon him.

What a sweet reminder that we should praise HIM for His favor on His children. His gifts are unmeasurable and His grace and mercy is everlasting.

Well, what did I do with the cute little candle holder?

I decided it would be GREAT as a ring holder!!!

 I need several more I am afraid to hold all my pretty gaudy rings.Well...they are pretty too!

Praise the Lord today my friend.....He is so worthy to be praised!

Hugs and blessings, Cindy
