THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The joy of grandchildren is measured in the heart.
I was blessed to celebrate with this little granddaughter last Saturday when she and her older sister, by just one year, had their party. This is the last of our November birthdays, but that doesn’t mean the celebrating is over. Tomorrow our family gathers for our Thanksgiving celebration.
After today, the weather is supposed to be warming up some and we’ll have a chance of rain. This has been a terribly cold week with single digit temps and to get up over the freezing mark will seem like a heat wave…of sorts anyway. The high for today is supposed to be 25 degrees.
I’m off on a little adventure with my sisters this morning , then later on I’m hoping to get some baking done. I made pie crust dough yesterday and it’s in the fridge ready to roll out. Pumpkin pies are going to be making my house smell delicious!
Hope you all have a fantastic Friday!!!
33 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
Take a moment today to check out your stock of food storage containers and zipper bags. Disposable containers hold baked goods for giving and keep leftovers in order during holiday cooking sessions. Lightweight and inexpensive, they nest neatly and travel well to new homes. I’ve got a large bag full here I’ll be taking along to DS#6’s for our family feast on Saturday.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
A One year old child is so many things --
A tiny discoverer of butterfly wings,
A hugger of Teddies,
A sweet sleepyhead,
And someone to dream for in bright years ahead…
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for 2 years and have now reached over 2000 gifts. On my way now to 3000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2240. for our Cutie Patootie, it’s her birthday today !
2241. for pumpkin pies, they are good and I need to make them more often
2242. for the preparation for the holidays, it’s half the fun!
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS

our troops and HIS wisdom for their

in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

Grandchildren complete the circle of love.

A bit of love from someone dear…
