"I hold on to You for dear life, and you hold me steady as a post..." Psalm 63

Thursday, November 26, 2009


I have an endless list of things to be thankful for today...

*my children
*my family
*my friends
*my home
*food at each meal
*a tank full of fuel oil
*clothes in my closet
*a healthy family
*a car that runs

And so much more...
I woke with a heart of gratitude today.  My family will be gathering at my sister's house in just a few hours.  The feasting preparations began two days ago...

my eldest nephew, Justin, will be preparing our whole meal!  It's always a treat to eat what his hands have prepared!  He is most excellent in his musical talent, and his cooking skills are pretty close to the same!  (makes Great Grandma's jello salad that I'm bringing pale in comparison!)  We've not had alot of time together in these last few months, so we're looking forward to gathering together
today to eat, play, and laugh!

Blessings upon each of you and your households as you gather to celebrate thankful lives.  In this time of difficult economy, job loss and other hardships may you have hearts that seek after the only One who brings joy midst the trouble.  Even when life looks bleak, there is SO much that each of us has to give thanks for.

"Give THANKS to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever....
Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story...
Let them give THANKS to the Lord for His unfailing love
and His wonderful deeds for mankind...."
Psalm 107
