I want to wish each and every one of you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday together with your families.

I am so very thankful for so many things. Maybe too many to list........ but let me try a few anyhow.

I'm so thankful God sought me.
I'm so thankful that He continued seeking me & my stubborn heart.
I'm so thankful for that moment of repentance, on the bed, and my life changed FOREVER.
I'm so thankful for that special man He brought into my life who also sought me, married me and wouldn't give up on me.
I'm so thankful for patience & compassion God gave me so that I didn't give up on him either.
I'm so thankful for the bundles of testosterone joy that now stand practically shoulder to shoulder with me each day.
I'm so thankful to be a homeschool mom, inspite of its challenges.
I'm so thankful that God gave me a new heart to be a homemaker (that was a miracle!).
I'm so thankful for this wonderful home we have, reliable transportation, private backyard, great neighbors and a big boat so we can fish as a family hobby.
I'm so thankful for the many people God has brought into my life to help shape me, mentor me and love on me.
I'm so thankful for my parents still being alive and that we have a wonderful relationship.
I'm so thankful for my sisters & their families. I love a big, close family.
I'm so thankful for the money that bought this holiday meal and how Jack had to work so hard to get it.
I'm so thankful for his job and the miracle of surviving numerous lay-offs and furloughs this year.
I'm so thankful for the convenience of running at 4pm into a busy grocery store and getting all our holiday meal food in less than an hour.
I'm so thankful for my life and how blessed I am. For giving me a voice that moves people close to God, not running for the door. For each Scripture that spoke something new to me each day. For good pastors who preached like their life depended on people's souls needing Jesus.
I'm so thankful for a risen Savior, who didn't have to die for my sins, yet He loved me enough to do it anyhow.

God bless and Much love!
