HAPPY THANKSGIVING!



Well, we have some friends coming in for the week/weekend and I'm not even going to set anything to publish! Woot! A real "bloggy vacation" until after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend is over.

I hope all of you have a truly wonderful Thanksgiving holiday celebration with your friends and family this year.

I know I have much to be thankful for, but the greatest is this:

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Thank you, Jesus, for your grace and mercy which you extend to me daily (sometimes on a minute-to-minute basis) and to my family.

Blessings, all!

Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude. ~E.P. Powell

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds. ~Theodore Roosevelt

Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. ~W.J. Cameron

Perhaps it takes a purer faith to praise God for unrealized blessings than for those we once enjoyed or those we enjoy now. ~A.W. Tozer

When our perils are past, shall our gratitude sleep? ~George Canning
