As I write this Thanksgiving post, all is still and quiet in my house.
It's still early, and I have at least an hour or so before my day will actually begin.
I LOVE this time of day. Time to be still and a moment to reflect.
This Thanksgiving, I am once again humbled and overwhelmed by the Lord's abundant mercy and goodness to me!
My heart is so full of gratitude that it feels as if it might BURST!
The Lord has blessed me with four...
...soon to be five...
a giving husband who loves me (and proves it daily),
Attentive parents and
siblings who are also...
my best friends,
extended family we LOVE
Food to fill our bellies and
a stocked pantry.
a church we LOVE, friends we ADMIRE,
a comfortable home, kind and caring neighbors,
warm beds, closets full of clothes, and shoes on our feet.
Seriously y'all...my list could go on and on and on...
As I was preparing to host both of our families for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, a little chorus I often heard my Grandpa sing flooded my mind...
"Thank you, Lord for saving my soul.
Thank you, Lord for making me whole.
Thank you, Lord for giving to me
Thy great salvation so rich and free."
Oh, how I am most grateful for my salvation and my personal relationship with Jesus Christ!
Without Him, I AM and would be NOTHING!
What a truly wonderful day it was.
A day to remember, reflect, and rejoice in what the Lord has done!
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!!!
