Remembering and praise
"Worship the Lord with gladness, come before him with joyful songs." Psalm 100:2
It is hard to believe but we are to the end of May. Today is Trinity Sunday, for those of us who follow the Liturgical calendar, the 2nd Sunday after Pentecost and Memorial Day Weekend. A time to remember the Trinity -- our God is 3 in 1 and 1 in 3 -- and celebrate the Holy Spirit being part of the 3. It is also Memorial Day a time of remembering the ones who did NOT come home. That is a lot to remember but it is especially a lot to be praising God for!
This Psalm reminds us to "make a joyful noise" (verse 1) and come into "His courts with praise and thanksgiving." (v. 4) As you think (remember?) about the celebrations going on this weekend what is the favorite hymn you think of? I, personally, think of "Holy, Holy, Holy" because of the "Lord, God Almight all thy works shall praise thy name." Yup, Trinity is the first thing, for this Sunday, I am thinking of. I must admit, however, I also love hearing - for Memorial Day - the songs/hymns of the various branches of our military.
What is it you think of? What do you remember? Can you share it with friends and family? Can we celebrate the special day of "remembering" with praise?
