Worship and Praise Sunday

I hope you all have had a wonderful week!
It is my goal to come visit each of you today and tomorrow. I have such a nice, relaxing spring break and am a bit sad that I have to go back to work on Monday. Oh well!

I was able to get a lot done this week but also was able to spend some time lounging on the couch! It was so wonderful!

An overview of my week:
Sunday, I went to IKEA with some of my girlfriends. I got a cute end table for our living room and some other small things.

Monday, I was able to help my best friend set up her nursery to prepare for her baby's arrival in May.

Tuesday was laundry and cleaning around the house. Also, Mackenzie and I went and bought two area rugs for our living room and dining area. It really helps the house feel more cozy.

Wednesday, Mackenzie and I both had the day off and we spent half the day in bookstores and other cute shops around town. That evening I went to a friends house for a "Twilight" party. We watched the movie and had dinner. It wasn't my favorite but fun to be with friends.

Thursday, I spend the day with a former mentor of mine and her kids. She is the photographer friend of mine and we took some more pictures. This time, they were outdoors. Fun!
Friday, I got some errands done and was able to clean and vacuum my car.

My husband worked on our guest bathroom this week. He hung a new mirror and I added some decorative details to it. I loved the way it turned out. We are still planning on tiling it within the next couple months.

I will share pictures of this past week in future posts. Now on to Worship and Praise Sunday!

This week I am sharing Our Great God by Fernando Ortega. This version has both Fernando Ortega and Mac Powell.

Eternal God, unchanging, mysterious and unknown
Your boundless love unfailing, in grace and mercy shown
Bright seraphim in ceaseless flight around Your glorious throne
They raise their voices day and night in praise to You alone

Hallelujah! Glory be to our great God!
Hallelujah! Glory be to our great God!

Lord, we are weak and frail, helpless in the storm
Surround us with Your angels, hold us in Your arms
Our cold and ruthless enemy, his pleasure is our harm
Rise up, oh Lord, and he will flee before our Sovereign God

Let every creature in the sea and every flying bird
Let every mountain, every field and valley of the earth
Let all the moons and all the stars in all the universe
Sing praises to the living God, who rules them by His word

This song is a favorite of both Mackenzie and I. The words are powerful and moving. I hope you enjoy it and are blessed by it.

Sounds like a wonderful week. I love to go on trips but sometimes staying at home and getting things done is even better.
I hadn't heard this song before but it was wonderful. I love the part:
Lord, we are weak and frail, helpless in the storm
Surround us with Your angels, hold us in Your arms
Aren't we thankful we have such a loving God that takes such great care of us!
Have a blessed Sunday!

Thanks for hosting. I find THE BEST new praise & worship songs, some that I had never heard before. The added bonus is finding neat blogs and new Christian friends. Have a blessed week!

I love this song, Brittany! We sing it a lot at church, so I found myself belting it out with your video. :-) Thanks so much for hosting Praise and Worship Sunday! If I can ever figure out the mechanics, I may join with a choice of mine. In the meantime, I am enjoying listening and singing along!
