  1. Eric, I LOVE this post!! Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on "Your Great Name" When I first heard that song, I called one of my more in-tune sons to come hear it with me and we worshipped toetehr as we listened. As I taught it to our church body God continued to minister to me and as I prepare to lead it again this week, I am excited to sing the message of God's love throug this song. I know you must be VERY proud of Krissy. Krissy, this guy REALLY LOVES YOU!!!! What a grat birthday tribute!!!
