A Day of Thanksgiving




Just want to take this time and say how very thankful I am for my family and friends! Thanksgiving has always been a special time for me....I love to think back on my childhood days and all the wonderful memories we all made. Some bring tears to my eyes knowing that those days are so long gone but then I think of the wonderful new memories that are yet to be made!

Danny started a fire in the wood stove late last night and the smell of the wood brought back so many memories...memories of both of my Grandma's now both resting in the arms of the Lord. I do miss them dearly!

So with that take time to reflect on all the blessings we have each and every day and tell those near and dear that you LOVE them for this is a time of THANKSGIVING!


We plough the fields and scatter
The good seed on the land,
But it is fed and watered
By God's almighty hand:
He sends the snow in winter,
The warmth to swell the grain,
The breezes and the sunshine,
And soft, refreshing rain.

Refrain:
All good gifts around us
Are sent from heaven above;
Then thank the Lord,
O thank the Lord,
For all his love.

He only is the maker
Of all things near and far;
He paints the wayside flower,
He lights the evening star;
The winds and waves obey him,
By him the birds are fed;
Much more to us, his children,
He gives our daily bread.

We thank thee then, O Father,
For all things bright and good,
The seed time and the harvest,
Our life, our health, our food.
Accept the gifts we offer
For all thy love imparts,
And what thou most desirest,
Our humble, thankful hearts.
