my horn

I often write about Ann Voskamp, what she has written or invited others to write with her.  Sometimes when I share about it on our blog I have certain friends in mind that I think would most enjoy whatever post it is....  but today, her post is really for everyone.


I won't even try to sum it up for you, I just so hope you'll read and enjoy for yourself.  Honestly, a few lines in, I was wondering if it might end up being a fairly silly (cheesy) post?  But gladly, positively, I was wrong.  It was wonderful.


Ann hung a horn on her wall for the lesson she learned.... and I printed up an old song that came to mind.  These lyrics are posted on the wall near our table now, where I'll be reminded often to sing them loud, sing them bold to proclaim all this goodness to myself and to my kids.


May it ring loud like a glad horn in our daily fight for joy!  

I Give Thanks

(Brian Thiessen, Vineyard Music)
      You have shown me favour unending 
      You have given Your life for me 
      And my heart knows of Your goodness 
      Your blood has covered me 
        I will arise and give thanks to You Lord my God And Your name I will bless With my whole heart You have shown mercy You have shown mercy to me I will give thanks to You, Lord 
      You have poured out Your healing upon us You have set the captives free And we know it is not what we’ve done But by Your hand alone
        We will arise and give thanks to You Lord our God And Your name we will bless With our whole heart You have shown mercy You have shown mercy to us We will give thanks to You, Lord
