Day 22 - Happy Thanksgiving!

We just left our first of two Thanksgiving celebrations today. Are any of you having two feasts today like us? I wanted to share a few Thanksgiving quotes right now... And another post later. I know, two in one day, but with it being Thanksgiving, it makes sense, right? So here it goes...

Thank God that even when we are not worthy of His blessings, He still loves us and bestows peace, joy, and happiness. Gary Smalley and John Trent

Our thanksgiving today should include things which we take for granted, and we should continually praise our
God, who is true to His promise, who has provided and retained the necessities for our living. Betty Fuhrman

And here is my prayer for you today:

May the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

This afternoon, I am thankful for...

1. Giggles of my sons wrestling with their Daddy
2. My sons battling it out over the wishbone
3. My 7 year old's uncle teaching him how to negotiate and the giggles that followed
4. Sweet potato soufflé
5. Doing dishes with my hubby
