Blessed be Your name in the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name
And blessed be Your name when I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed be your name
Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
And when the darkness closes in Lord
Still I will say Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name
Blessed be Your name when the suns shining down on me
When the worlds all as it should be
Blessed be Your name
And blessed be Your name on the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name
You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name
I first heard this song when Mr. Brick's dear Nana was in the processing of passing from this life to the next. I was 8 months pregnant with #2 and the words hit me straight in the heart. He gives AND takes away. My heart will CHOOSE to say. I have heard it on the radio three times since Granny Beth has gone to Heaven and I am again pregnant. My heart overflows with the abundance of His blessings and with the way in which He reveals His gifts to me. Granny Beth was indeed a gift while on this earth and I am carrying a gift in my womb. My heart is choosing to say: Lord, blessed be Your name.

This is my first time to see your blog and I am so impressed! I love your mix of humor and serious stuff. Anne Murray does rock! Granny Beth was an amazing woman and I hope I can live in a shack in the neighborhood of her mansion someday. Mine will be the one with the dirty floors. It is a blessing that she passed so quickly. It is hard to see the blessings when the storm clouds are so big but they are there. Her death should make us all hug our loved ones a little closer.
