Hosanna - "a cry of adoration to our God"

Today the 'boys' are enjoying some time together and we 'girls' are enjoying some time together.  Tony and James left early this morning to join the Promise 139 field trip to our former stomping ground - New Orleans!  I avoided the temptation of tagging along knowing James needed some Papa time.   Praising God for opportunities to have "Papa" time and "Mama" time...
Tony sent the following pictures...Manly breakfast - Chicken!
French Quarter...
Cafe Du Monde...
Mississippi River...
Meanwhile, the girls dressed themselves up and asked, "Mama!  Musica!"  Their favorite song:
"Hosanna!  Hosanna!  Hosanna in the highest!"
(Hillsongs of Australia)

Dancing around while I checked email...

"Ascribe to the LORD, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.  Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness....  The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD sits enthroned as king forever.  May the LORD give strength to his people!  May the LORD bless his people with peace!"  (Psalm 29:1-2, 10-11)

We give thanks to the Lord today for His steadfast love, constant provision and sovereign grace!  
We join in celebrating the news of the Hodge's new family of six ability to travel home tomorrow!  May the Lord grant them safe, timely and sweet flights tomorrow!
