I've had this hymn stuck in my head for days, so I decided to letter its first line. I learned to love old hymns in college, the ones that make you think as you sing them. Newton is calling us to forms of praise: loving God, singing his praises, and wondering in amazement of the glory of God. What does praise look like in a normal day? I'm not sure mine looks much like love, singing, or wonder. I'm usually half hearted at best, humming along to the radio but not paying much attention, taking most of what's around me for granted. But what if he heeded Newtons call here, to wholehearted love, sing, and wonder at God's goodness and grace? I think our days would look very different. Tomorrow I want to live a day of praise, to love and sing and wonder. To not miss the ways the earth is crying out His glory. To marvel at the amazing intricacy of God's plan. To proudly proclaim his praise. Anyone else with me? (This print is on my etsy now, nancypage.etsy.com).
