Thanksgiving Thursday - November 5, 2015

Welcome to another weekly installment of Thanksgiving Thursday.  :-)

Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous;
    it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
Psalm 33:1

Counting my blessings one by one:
  • For a town rich in American History...
  • For a crisp, sunny Autumn day to enjoy a nice, long walk with my husband...
  • For a God who creates incredible beauty during this time of year - from the color spectrum of Autumn leaves to the majesty of brilliant sunsets..

  • For the incredible joy of having a baby in the house once again...

  • For delicious comfort food...
{Beef & Gnocchi}

  • For catching up via email with a dear, sweet friend who recently moved...
  • For the continued unseasonably warm November weather...
  • For a routine dermatology check yielding know worrisome findings...
  • For time in the Word on a sunny afternoon...

Praising God for His many blessings this past week.

I’ll count my blessings—
Count them o’er and o’er—
I’ll tell my Father’s goodness—
I will love Him more,
I’ll count my blessings, bountiful and free—
Yet I can never count them all—
So good is God to me!

Carrie E. Breck

  1. Beautiful post-- the pics of the trees make me miss back home... and the delicious soup/bread makes me hungry! (I have comfort ate a lot today to nurse this cold. Need to break that habit. Ha.) Thanks for sharing and linking up, Karen.

    1. Sharita, Thank you.


      Hope your cold is feeling better. I know what you mean. I didn't use to be a comfort eater and now that's all I do! lol.

      Always a pleasure to link up. Thanks for hosting! :-)

  5. Such beautiful Fall colors and that fine stone fence...reminds me of Virginia or Pennsylvania or somewhere where I have been before with those two characteristics.
    Joy comes with our gratitude, doesn't it? Glad you are my neighbor at Jennifer's tonight.
