Give Thanks ~ Nov. 12

I am thankful to the Lord for the simple pleasure of feeding and watching His little feathered creatures! We have a wooden bird feeder that the squirrels have vandalized over the years. But I just can't seem to part with it since the birds enjoy it so, and it is strategically located so that I can enjoy catching a glimpse of them throughout my day. So thankful...

May I never stop thanking the Lord for the privilege, joy, and blessing of being a "full-time" home maker. I know there are women who long to do this--I've only been doing it for a little over 11 years--so I never want to take it for granted. Thank you Lord for the immeasurable blessing of "keeping the home fires burning", and serving my husband, daughters, and others from home base.

I am deeply thankful to God for friends. Through them, God has encouraged me, challenged me, strengthened me, rebuked/corrected me, spurred me on to love and good deeds, even carried me at times! Next to God's blessing of family, His blessing of good and faithful friends is priceless.

I thank the Lord for our safe, comfortable, cozy, and ever so slightly cramped house! It is truly a "home" because of the people who reside here, sharing our hearts with each other, memories we make together, and the love we share--imperfectly, yet intentionally, purposefully, and with hope!
