Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Happy Thanksgiving!
Take joy in counting your blessings
Rejoice in family and friends
May God be very real to you as you give thanks.

Yikes! the holidays are here!

I love the holidays, don't you? I hope so. It is wonderful to see old friends and catch up with family that we don't see often enough. And the food, oh yes the food, some that we only eat at this time and brings memories of the past.  Like the 'green jello' that Gramma made and we still make to this day or the sweet potatoes or broccoli casserole. The food is good but the memories are even better.

So as you prepare for Thanksgiving what are you thankful for? The food, the memories, being together as a family again? I hope there is also room to give thanks for the freedoms enjoyed in America and for all the blessings God has in his mercy given.

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving,

Scrappily, Susan
