Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has a wonderful day today! :)

Give Thanks 

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son
Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son
And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"


O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.  O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.  O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.   To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever.  To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.  To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.  To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever:  The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever: The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever."  Psalm 136

Follow That Which is Good

See that no man render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Thessalonians 5:15


How quickly we want to get back at someone and return evil for evil! Slights, insults, open rejection- hurtful words and actions that sometimes come our way. Our immediate response is to retaliate, to show we will not stand for it and to silence the source. But that strategy, appealing to the flesh and encouraged by the world deepens the problem. If that is your situation today, commit the matter to the Lord Who experienced the same (1 Peter 2:23) and watch how He will work with you and for you.  -M. Kolchin

Jesus, meek and gentle, Son of God most High, Gracious, loving Saviour, hear Thy children's cry. -G. Prynne

Surprise Supper

I already know that I have an awesome husband who treats me like a queen every day, but it's times like this...

 ...when he surprises me and brings home Happy Meals for the kids and delicious sushi for me and him so I didn't have to fix supper, that I realize again just how blessed I am to have him!  I'm one spoiled girl. ;) :)

A Little Fellow Follows Me

I came across this poem not long ago, though written about fathers and sons, it can easily be applied to me as a mom of daughters/sons too.  I'm thankful for my husband who is a wonderful loving example to our children!

  A LITTLE FELLOW FOLLOWS ME

A careful man I want to be;
A little fellow follows me.
I do not dare to go astray
For fear he’ll go the self-same way.
I cannot once escape his eyes,
Whate’er he sees me do, he tries.
Like me he says he’s going to be;
The little chap who follows me.
He thinks that I’m so very fine,
Believes in every word of mine.
The base in me he must not see;
The little chap who follows me.
I must remember as I go
Through summer’s sun and winter’s snow,
I’m building for the years to be;
The little chap who follows me.
