A Groovy Party

Thank you my Lord
For a beautiful day
Thank you my Lord
I’m so happy to say
Thank you my Lord
For the flowers that grow
There would be nothing I know
Without You
Thank you my Lord
For the sun in the sky
Thank you my Lord
I’m so grateful that I
Thank you my Lord
For the rivers that flow
There would be nothing I know
Without You

To God be the glory
To God be the glory
To God be the glory
For the things He has done

With His blood He has saved me
With His power He has raised me;
To God be the glory
For the things He has done

For all the music
And the songs that we sing
For all the laughter
And the joy that You bring
Thank you my Lord
I have nothing to fear
As long as I have You here
Beside me
Thank you my Lord
For the birds in the trees
Thank you my Lord
I am down on my knees
Thank you my Lord
For the rain and the snow
There would be nothing I know
Without You
Just let me live my life
Let it pleasing, Lord to Thee
And if I gain any praise
Let it go to Calvary
For all the mountains
That You give us to climb
For all the valleys
Yeah I say one more time
Thank you my Lord
I have nothing to fear
As long as I have You here
Beside me

Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend. Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend.
Oh, yeah, yeah, you’ve got a friend.
How can I say thanks
For the things You have done for me?
Things so undeserved
Yet You gave to prove Your love for me;
The voices of a million angels
Could not express my gratitude
All that I am and ever hope to be
I owe it all to Thee
I mixed up some lyrics from a few songs from the 70’s to give words to this post about the wonderful birthday celebration for Herb and Anneliese in Canada last Saturday. It was a wonderful thought out celebration with a 70’s theme. Herb and Anneliese’s kids brought things together well for a lovely celebration. New friends and lifelong friends came together to celebrate. The lyrics are from songs by B.J. Thomas, Andrae Crouch and Carole King.

  1. You gals sure know something about celebrating! I loved the photo of you and Judy doing the limbo. Some are more challenged than others in being successful at that game. Those lyrics were cool!

  2. I like how you incorporated the lyrics of those songs, expressing the sentiments of the celebration in our hearts. To God be the glory for the things He has done! Thank you for coming to our pad “in Canada” to party with us! I’ll be posting once I get the photos from the photographer the kids arranged for. =)

  3. So enjoyed seeing the birthdays celebration,Ellen, your thankfulness is so inspiring! Friends are one of God’s greatest gifts to us! Thank you for sharing.
    Blessings,

  4. What a joyous time for everyone that was there. It looks as though everything was so well organized and the fruit of that was seeing everyone enjoying themselves so much.

  5. What a great 70s party . . . a happy celebration for your friends!! (Love the outfits!)

    When you remember “vintage,” does that mean you’re old? 😉

  6. Oh what a cool party!!!! You captured some great photos and I love the lyrics you put with them. This reminds me of a 60s New Years Eve Party we did some time ago – what fun. Great way to celebrate two amazing people!
