Giving Thanks For The Ordinary

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Memory Verse For The Month Of November

I didn’t realize it when I extended the Making Your Home A Haven During November that Women Living Well/Good Morning Girls were going to be doing it as well.
I’m excited about it and I really love what they are doing.
Giving Thanks for the Ordinary

Have you heard? We are keeping the “Making Your Home Haven” Series going but with a twist for November. Come check out this week’s Challenge here – the comment section is lit up today with thanks! I’m so encouraged! —–>…/new-series-giving-thanks-for-…/

Tag your friends and join us! This will transform your home this month!

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, GIVE THANKS in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“So while our candles are going…
and the soft music is playing…
and the fun mom is smiling…
and the tasty smells are lofting through the air from dinner in the oven…
let’s add in “Giving Thanks”!


I believe we will be greatly blessed by living this out in our homes. Let’s do this together!

This month, I want to keep our candles going and each time we see the flicker of the candle, give thanks to God for something ordinary.  I’m not talking about the big things like our home, family and jobs (which I am deeply grateful for!) but the ordinary things we take for granted – without ever giving a prayer of thanks.

Check out the rest of the post.
Remember to thank God For all of the ordinary gifts we have been given.

Take This Week’s Challenge:

Buy an extra large candle and light a candle everyday in your home.  Each time the candle catches your eye, give thanks to God for an ordinary thing in your life.  Encourage those who live in your home to join you.

New Series: Giving Thanks for the Ordinary


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
