thanksgiving day roses

Nothing says beautiful
like a big bouquet of roses.
Only God can make a flower...
That from a tiny seed placed deep in the earth,
such a masterpiece can come,
is truly a miracle.
These will be gracing our table on Thursday
when we gather together.

I have such thanks ~ giving in my heart this day!
My house is clean,
All of the food that we need for the big day is here,
Amanda & Mark & Jake & Eli are on their way.
We have had three days of much needed rain,
God has abundantly answered our prayers.

The only sad thing is that little Gus is very sick.
David and his family are having Thanksgiving with
Erika's family in North Carolina.
We will surely miss them. :(

Thankfulness is an attitude.
God's word tells us to
"give thanks in all things."
Thankfulness is a daily habit to cultivate,
a striving to remember how much God has done
to give us life and set us free.

once again I will strive to make the dressing
as good as our moms could,
make the table setting exquisitely beautiful,
and make our guests feel 
special & loved.
most of all,
I have been praying for everyone that will come.

"In everything give thanks:
for that is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
I Thessalonians 5:18
