Thanking the Lord for our sweet twin grandsons were able to visit this past weekend.
We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving with my eldest son and daughter in law making the entire Thanksgiving dinner by themselves...with a double portion of helpers!!
My husband had to work the day prior, so we traveled Thanksgiving day, arriving a couple hours before dinner. Everything was made and perfectly done! My son's first TURKEY! (well he might say he already had two!!) The twins are little characters...jabbering away and holding up hands for at "taste"...such a fun Thanksgiving with them.
We have so much to be THANKFUL for...as ALWAYS. God's mercies sure and sweet. I love THANKSGIVING and the thankful reminders all through the day of how BLESSED we truly are...and much more so for knowing the LORD JESUS CHRIST as our personal Saviour.
Thank you Lord, for saving my soul, Thanking you Lord, for making me whole,
Thank you Lord, for giving to me Thy great salvation so rich and free.

I Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
THIS IS THE DAY...thankfulness fills my heart!

THANKSGIVING...a time of recalling with others...THANKFULNESS.
I bought this little Indian decoration when my first grandson Austin, celebrated his FIRST Thanksgiving. He is now 14 years old.
I am so thankful to see my grandchildren now desire spiritual things in their lives, by choice. THANKFUL as well, for the many blessings they can now fully understand have come from the hand of GOD.
Thinking on past THANKSGIVINGS...it is a reminder of how many we have shared and EACH YEAR so full of testimonies of God's grace.
MEMORIES OF GOD'S FAITHFULNESS
It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father!
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not:
As Thou has been
Thou forever wilt be.
Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness,
Lord unto me!
John Peterson 1921
Have a blessed THANKSGIVING full of Praises to GOD!!

This post write up is excellent. I'd like to share it with you today if you will.
I myself have suffered loss. You can read more about this on my watering wells of hope blog
under the title STEPHEN. You can also click on labels if you like for specific helps.
GOD is our only help in time of such great need. He alone is the ONE who knows it all. The suffering, the heartache, the pain...and the lack of understanding by others. No one knows us like our maker...the GOD of ALl creation.
Please read this Psalm. I read this so often in my fiery trial of faith...and found such comfort. I italicized the verse that meant so much to me.
O LORD, though hast searched me, and known me.
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand hold me.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
Yes, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness
and the light are both alike to thee.
For thou has possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works;
and that my soul knoweth right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in
the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members
were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O GOD!
how great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with thee.
Sometimes words are not enough from others...nor from our own lips.
Praise GOD he knows the heart! He knows the depths of despair and he knows our desires. Let them be right before HIM and let HIM have his perfect will in your lives.
I can assure you..Romans 8:28 is always true to those who know the LORD Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. Who know the trust that comes by pure FAITH in his work.
I pray THIS IS THE DAY..you are encouraged to seek HIM..for whom shall you go?
