Praising Texan


Holy is the Lord
(Chris Tomlin)

We stand and lift up our hands
For the joy of the Lord is our strength
We bow down and worship Him now
How great, how awesome is He

And together we sing

[Chorus]
Holy is the Lord God Almighty
The earth is filled with His glory
Holy is the Lord God Almighty
The earth is filled with His glory
The earth is filled with His glory

It's rising up all around
It's the anthem of the Lord's renown

And together we sing,
Everyone sing.

It's so fun when you come across bloggers from your home state! I always get excited when I stumble upon another one.

So please do me a favor! I am working on a list of all my blogging friends who live here in Texas or have roots here. (Family members, I know you are here!) Please either email me or leave me a comment if you are one of those; I just want to make sure my list is complete. (In the future, I'm also going to compile a list of all you others who are scattered across--got 'em from Canada to my brother who is living in Cambodia.)

Yeah, I know this is probably a little crazy. But humor me!

Thanks and have a great week.

  1. I LOVE that song. Always brings me to tears when I hear/sing it.

    Hubby and I met and married in Texas. Two of our daughters were born there. My mom lives there and I will be visiting the end of this month.

  2. OK, I'm not from Texas, but I flew through Dallas a couple of times. I also like horses. Maybe I could be an "honorary"?

    Blessings!

  5. I'm so excited to say that I am a Texan. My family settled there before Texas gained statehood. I was born and raised there; married there and have two daughters who were born there. My ancestors pictures are hanging in the capital. But I married a Yankee and we moved here to Illinois a few years back. Please put me on your list of 'people who have roots in Texas'. My family still lives there; mostly near San Antone but our roots are originally in East Texas.
    Homesick, Debbie

  10. Ooo Ooo Ooo! Pick me!

    I was born and raised in South Texas...all (and I mean ALL) my family is still there, and my husband's too. He's from just outside San Antonio.

    All of our kids were born there but one (we've been in Georgia for 7 years now). So PUT ME DOWN, pardner! ;-)

  12. Love the song. Hope you and yours have a blessed New Year. I'm not from Texas, never been there either. But my oldest brother and sister was born there in panhandle. lol Im in Georgia. Tried doing the same thing with my blog a while back but it got confusing for this old blonde. So I just left it like it was.

  15. My husband and I have lived in Texas 4 times: once with the Army, once for college (we are graduates of Abilene Christian and went all 4 years there), once for the Air Force, and once to just live there and pastor a church. Does that count???
    Am I a "born-again Texan"?

  22. WOOHOO count me in. I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. My parents still live there as do most of my relatives. We now live in Oklahoma but not far across the Texas border at Gainesville, Texas (about 35 mins. away) and we frequent the Dallas, Texas area. Thanks so much for inviting me to join.♥

  29. Another Howdy from East Texas! I've talked to you before, but I wanted to make sure I'm on your list, Diana! I'm a natural Texan from way back on both sides of my family. We Gig 'Em and Hook 'Em both. And like Debbie at Attracted to Shiny Objects, I'm getting my handgun license and I'm the first person to be on a sign-up list when Texas decides to secede from the Union! We're the only state that can fly our flag at the same level as the US Flag! Remember the Alamo!

  31. Diana, so glad I met you in Texas! I lived in Texas from 6th grade through 10th, then from 2002-2008. My parents and our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter, and Jeff's sister and her family all live in Texas, and we didn't move very far across the line.

  35. I'm a Texan... at least for the last for the last 5+ years. I know that doesn't qualify me as a "real" Texan ;) But I would still love to be included.

    Sadly, I am in the process of moving back to the West Coast.
