If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Counting One Thousand Gifts

Still counting things I'm thankful for.

31.  Being part of a church who loves to help the community.  Each year, our church serves a free Thanksgiving dinner to anyone in the community who wants to attend, or if they are shut-ins, we deliver lunch to them.  We also serve to our local law enforcement and fire personnel and communications officers who are on duty on Thanksgiving.  I love being part of a caring church family.

32.  I love getting to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family.  There were 19 of us gathered this year.  My sister opened her home to us and everyone brought in food and we had a great time.  Here are a few of us gathered at the table.  The rest of us were probably in the kitchen still filling our plates.  She had a humongous table that fit all of us and still had room for a few more.  (Kelli hopefully you'll get to be there with us soon, maybe next Thanksgiving).

33.  So thankful that my daughter has a wonderful roommate that took her home with her for Thanksgiving since she couldn't come home to us.  Thanks Salina and family!  Love you.

34.  I'm thankful for Skype.  It was so wonderful Friday night to be able to sit and talk for over an hour to Kelli via Skye.  I just love this modern technology sometimes.  :)

35.  Having a job that allows me to spread my vacation time out throughout the year.  It was so nice to be off from Wednesday through Sunday.  Loved the time with my family and friends.

36.  Going out on Black Friday, but not buying one thing from the special sales. haha  Just had fun with my hubby and Kerri.  We bought a few things, but not the special Black Friday sales. 

37.  Naps...I'm thankful that this past weekend I had several opportunities to take a short afternoon nap.  I just love to do this.  Of course now I'm not sure how I'll stay awake all day at work this week.  haha  Thank you Lord for the opportunity to rest in you.

  1. What a beautiful picture of your family, Cathy....it reminds me of my own.....BIG! :> )

    Kelli is growing into such a beautiful young lady!


  2. Isn't having the humongous table for all the family to sit around just the best?!?! And yay for skype! I'm sure it was hard for you and your daughter not being there on Thanksgiving.

  3. Oh Cathy I just loved reading your list of blessings. God is so good! And I love technology too. When used in the right way, it can be so helpful for keeping us all close when we're apart from family. I had the long weekend off too and spent much time taking NAPS too! :)

    Blessings and love,
