A Day in My Life: Thanksgiving


In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. —1 Thessalonians 5:18

My Thanksgiving was filled with loved ones, delicious food, and reminders of the many blessings of this year. Countless things to be grateful for! Below are a few snapshots of our Thanksgiving celebration.

  1. Looks like you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. The pictures of the baby are precious. That day was a real memory maker.
    God Bless

    A beautiful set table. So inviting. Love your attitude. I have tried to thank the Lord every night and every morning before getting out of bed for things. David Jeremiah, Charles Stanley, and others gave quite a list of verses where we are supposed to daily, nightly, even at midnight it mentions in Psalm 119, to give thanks. Give thanks for all things, even the bad things, thanking Him He is going through them with you and helping you, etc. If circumstances is not good thank Him anyway, He will get us through, etc. Besides for food too, scripture for that. I am trying to increase my spirit of thanks more heavily and enjoyed your writing here. It is so important for us to be thankful, it helps my attitude about things. God richly bless you and yours. So enjoyed your photos. Wish I was a part of your wonderful family.

    What beautiful pictures and you all look so happy to be together! God Bless You and Your Family! I hope that you had a wonderful day! My highlight from Thanksgiving was being with my family and everybody enjoying the meal That I prepared and just enjoying our time together and being happy and content and not arguing with each other! You never know when today might be your last day, and i have been very ill this year, I spend a lot of time in the hospital for treatments too! I love to read, especially Amish books! And because I have been ill, I haven’t been able to buy any new books. I get to my small library when I can, but I have read all of the books that are on subjects that I enjoy! I am hoping to win a Kindle, I would be so truly blessed and fortunate to win one and then I would be able to get free books on the internet! And that would mean a lot to me! I am hoping that maybe a Christmas Angel will come to my rescue! Have a wonderful, blessed day!
