Let's get it started

So, I was laying in bed for the scant moment I had before the girls got up. I had a wonderful day of prayer and see prayers answered yesterday. Nothing huge, but God just kept showing His face to me. I decided to praise Him this morning instead of only ask for what I, my family and friends need to face their day.

With the song "I am God" by Kirk Franklin (feat. TobyMac) ringing in my head (and playing on my iTunes now), I decided to start a list of reasons to praise God, based on who He is. Not new, but since my Bible wasn't in front of me, I just started rattling it off. Here goes (and by no means an exhaustive list and not complete!) I hope to come back and add Scripture references to all of these (and more) later!
