Have a Blessed Thanksgiving

BE THANKFUL
Dear Family and Friends,   Thursday this week is THANKSGIVING DAY in our country.  Thanksgiving is a special time for families to gather and just enjoy being together.   George and I will spend a few days with George's son and family. George's son is an excellent chef ---so you know that we will really enjoy some 'good eatin'........ YUM!!!!

The picture above has always been a favorite of mine.  It was taken on one of our trips to the Hocking Hills area in OHIO several years ago....  I am thankful when I'm out in nature enjoying God's beautiful creations.





YES----remember your blessings and fill your home with LOVE!




I am grateful for so many things in my life.   Right now,  I think about my health and how much  better I feel when compared to a year ago.  When the "A-Fib-Bug"  hit me a year ago,  my life changed.  BUT--after my Cardiac Ablation in June,   I am now in Normal Sinus Rhythm --and feel as if I have my life back...Thanks be to God!


I am SNAZY ST. CRANBERRY!!!!!!  haha







I took this picture a few years ago from the parking lot of the Lutheran Church here in Fairfield Glade...  Seeing the steeple, the blue skies and the Autumn colors  reminded me of how blessed I am.




This prayer says it ALL!!!!!  Let's rejoice in the God who is always there for us in every situation.

We all have so many things in our lives to be thankful for --but sometimes, when life gets 'rough',  we ignore these blessings....  Today  (and every day),  let's CELEBRATE them!

To God Be the Glory......  Have a loving, happy, healthy and God-Filled WEEK.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Love to ALL,

We’re all thankful for someone or something in life and it’s the kind of humbleness elevates us. Hope you have a blessed day with George’s son family and their special treats! Thank you Betsy, I enjoy your company in blog :)
