Great is Thy Faithfulness

Growing up, I wasn't a huge fan of hymns.  I went to a fairly conservative church in Portland where they *sometimes* used the big organ.  The funny thing is, I really liked the organ with the pipes reaching high up, and the woman who played it always seemed so serious, so I thought playing the organ must have been a super hard job.  I mean goodness, there's several levels of keys so you've really gotta be on it to make sure you don't mess the entire service up. 

Now that I'm a "grown up" I actually have grown to appreciate hymns and the history they have.  One of my favorites as of late is "Great is thy Faithfulness."  My favorite version is this one...(excuse the cheesy graphics...)

If I had to pick a favorite verse it'd be this one

Great is thy faithfulness, great is thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed, thy hand hath provided
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord unto me

Why? I don't know, I just really like it

Yesterday, I was in a pretty crappy mood (just being real here) .  My poor husband, it's like I was taken over by a grouchy, whiny brat. 

Then I heard this song on my Pandora this morning, coincidence? I think not, and I was determined to make this a better day. It's funny how God uses things like Pandora to snap me back into line.

I love this hymn so much. My mom and I sang it together every morning before my grandma passed away while we were taking care of her. I'm glad you enjoy it too ;) Love all your posts, by the way!
