Blessed Be His Name–Always — 13 Comments

  1. What a beautiful tribute to your friend and their family as they worshipped the Lord at the funeral. And what a great reminder to the rest of us as we face suffering and trials during our daily lives.

    Love you,


  2. What a beautiful photograph, Janis. This song is one of my favorites. Praying for your friend’s family and loved ones. Bless you all in this loss.

  3. Janis, I love your photo (I grew up on the Atlantic Ocean and sorely miss it). The waves remind me of the Lord’s constant working and blessing in my life. Always there, steady, washing me with His Word! Thanks for sharing your beautiful photo.


  4. In October the Lord gave me that song after a friend’s son died of a brain tumor. I was so deeply saddened and felt such a burden for the family. I was noting the pretty sunset outside and all of a sudden I was singing that song in my head and I couldn’t quit singing it and then every time I got into my car for the next few days it kept coming on the radio. I felt the Lord telling me “to praise Him in this loss”. When we sang that song again at the service this past week I was just amazed once again at God reminding me we must trust Him and praise Him no matter what the circumstances. Love how you have expressed this in your post! 🙂

  5. This picture made me feel like I could hear and smell the ocean. It must bring God joy to know we trust His ways enough to praise Him in our heart breaking days.


  6. Janis, I was so uplifted by this blog post. I haven’t had much time to comment, but I wanted to comment on this one. Lisa had shared that they sang this song at the memorial, and I was needing comfort, so I started playing it. I cried and cried. I then went and picked up my daughter and it came on the radio in her car. It has given me much comfort in these days that have been filled with both sorrow and blessing. Love you, dear friend.
