Thankful Thursday

Today is Thankful Thursday ... already? lol ... time goes fast when you're having fun! I have a lot to be thankful for but for now I will just post part of one of my favorite hymns. Rhondi of Rose Colored Glasses is hosting a Thankful Thursday. Please visit her blog if you're interested to join. So, here goes ...

I'm Pressing on the Upward Way

I'm pressing on the upward way,
New heights I'm gaining every day;
Still praying as I'm onward bound,
"Lord, plant my feet on higher ground."

Lord, Lift me up and let me stand
By faith on heaven's table land,
A higher plane that I have found;
"Lord, plant my feet on higher ground."


I love this hymn ... it's very old, 1898. Have a wonderful Thursday everybody!

That is an old! I'm sure I can't sing this song, I'll just hum (still out of tune) the last line, which I like..."Lord, plant my feet on higher ground."

Have a Thankful Thursday!

it's uplifting Nance...
Thank you for sharing.

The job interview was a preliminary one, then they had to interview internal candidates. I got an email yesterday saying they are now looking at external. I am crossing my fingers and toes and hoping God will make a way for me to get in. It's a great opportunity especially for an immigrant like me, in the city of Pittsburgh, during hard times like now, at home and nationwide. worldwide i guess. pakisama mo naman ako sa dasal mo.

Thank you Nancy
Jeannie

The words were great in 1898 and still hold true to this day. Thanks for the reminder.

Yes, that's an oldie but a goodie. Thanks for posting the words, they'll be playing in my head all day!

I have CD set called "Hymns from the Old Country Church", and it is so good to listen to the traditional hymns before heading off to church to hear the more contemporary music. (I am learning to enjoy that too!)
