Want a little chocolate? I am putting together a goodie box for a friend and took her favorite chocolate bar and wrapped it up-
I decided to use this week's BELLI CHALLENGE - CORD on this challenge too -The Bloggers Challenge is anything with a THANKSGIVING theme - I used Sweet 'n Sassy's Thanksgiving Scripture stamp set! I just love this set!
I want to take a moment and say - I am soooo blessed! There are multiple things I am thankful for this year. Here is a short list -
1. My God and Savior - "I will praise the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God even with my dying breath." Psalm 146:2 NLT
2. My husband - despite the difficulties and times we may disagree, he is a hardworker, excellent provider, he is faithful, he loves me despite my MANY flaws, and he is willing to work through our difficulties TOGETHER - and he is an excellent father. He gets up for work every day - even when I say you should call in "sick of work" today, LOL...he resists the temptation. He's the MAN and I am blessed to have him in my life - even if he doesn't try to be romantic. heehee
3. My children - ohhh, if you know me, I may complain that they can drive me crazy - I hear "I'm hungry" at least 100 times a day but what mother doesn't? They are beautiful, loving, snuggly and my JOY.
4. My mom - recently my mom and I went away for a weekend together and during a quiet time, we had an opportunity to pray together. It was such an encouragement and blessed time for me. I appreciate her so much! I am blessed to have a praying mother.
I could go on and on - every Thanksgiving we make a Thanksgiving tree and during our daily devotions as a family, I make leaves and each person writes what we are thankful for on those leaves and decorate our tree. I will take a picture of our tree next week!
Be sure to take some time to check out the other Thanksgiving Blogger challenges!
Count Your Blessings today!
God Bless You-
