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

Currently - The Day before Thanksgiving

Currently I am...


Reading:  Divine Disruption by Dr. Tony Evans and his 4 kids and I'm also reading The Rancher's Christmas by Brenda Minton.

Listening to: Christmas Traditional Radio on Pandora - "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" is currently playing.

Loving: Watching all the Hallmark Christmas movies.

Thinking: I have a 4 day weekend coming up and yes, I know I just got back from a 2 1/2 week vacation.

Feeling: Happy.  Life is pretty good right now.

Celebrating:  Thanksgiving of course.

Grateful for: Retirement that is approaching.  I only have 24 more days to work and that's counting today..

Weather:  Cold, but beautiful sunshine and blue skies.


Enjoying:  Seeing Lucy in her new sweater.

And the beautiful manger my sister's husband made for us.  Picking up a floodlight after work so it'll show in the dark.  

Looks like I also need to rake some leaves, so it'll look a little better.  lol

A quote I want to share: I've posted this before, but it bears repeating.
"Worry is a conversation you have with yourself about things you cannot change.  Prayer is a conversation you have with God about things He can change."

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Tuesday 4 - Thanksgiving

 

Thanksgiving

 Welcome to Toni Taddeo's Tuesday 4... Go here to link up, if you'd like to join in.


Thanksgiving is the subject.

1. What are you most thankful for this year?  My family.

2.Company or just immediate family?  Neither.  It'll just be hubby and me at home and then in the afternoon we are going to his mom's house (or that's what we're planning. She hasn't said for sure.)

3 Cooking or catering?  We had a Thanksgiving type meal at Bob Evans on Saturday with my sisters and brother and their spouses...so fun to be together and no mess and I even had leftovers to dinner that night) Home or eating out?  Hubby is hoping instead of a traditional dinner his mom will let him bring a pot of chili (his is the best!) and just relax and enjoy visiting without all the mess and fuss.)

4. What's for dessert? I have not idea, but maybe pumpkin pie?

So what are your plans...do tell.  Either here or make a post and link up above.

Thanks for visiting.
