Created to praise

Most of the verses written about praise in God's Word were voiced by people faced with crushing heartaches, injustice, treachery, slander, and scores of other difficult situations.

- Joni Eareckson Tada

This people I have formed for Myself;
They shall declare my praise."
Isaiah 43:21

I love the quotes (and the picture, of course).

Touching quote and verse selection, Bethany! The picture is so captivating, and ties the entire post together beautifully. Thank you for sharing!

Hello Bethany,

I've been a "lurker" for awhile, (I found it either through Courtney N.'s or Andrea H.'s blogs ... they both are dear friends of mine) but I just wanted to tell you how much I have been encouraged by your blog.

Thankyou for all the poems, and quotes you post (and pictures too! I'm a violinist, and so I especially enjoy the music ones). =)

How true! What a statement. Thanks for sharing! Trials make us stronger by God's grace... And how worthy He is of our praise!

I love the picture of the violin! I like to experiment with different angles on pictures, and the one you picked is probably my favorite! Thanks for posting a great picture of "my" instrument! :)

PS. I meant my favorite angle for violins. Sorry I didn't make that clear in the last note!
