Making My Home A Haven is important to me. Sharing homemaking skills. Recipes and food. Bible Studies. This is a treasure chest of goodies. So take a seat. Have a glass of tea and enjoy. You will learn all about who I am.
These were taken Saturday evening. Danny and I left our house around 10: 30 AM. Got gas and a few groceries and were on our way. It’s a fairly short drive. Lot’s of traffic for us country bumpkins.
I Am VERY THANKFUL that we were able to get- a -way this weekend. Needing prayers though. MY ATTITUDE NEEDS ADJUSTED! I am still fighting the anger of betrayal and can’t seem to get past getting upset when things don’t go the way I believe they should. I hate it when he is texting (other RAIL FANS) ALL DAY LONG WHILE I AM WITH HIM. A few here and there would be ok. I just don’t believe in being online with someone when your spouse/love one/friend IS SITTING right next to you.
From Sarah : Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I pray that you are busy spending time with your family and friends and not online like I am. LOL. I used to go HELP out at the park every Thanksgiving. Being lazy this year. Danny has late field so we were able to sleep in a bit. I could have stayed in bed a lot longer. Woke up to a very cloudy and gloomy day.
The park radio has been blaring all morning . We had a huge mixup in our DAY USE AREA. Double booked at the large pavilion. It is the ONLY pavilion with electricity. The only one really big enough for a large group. The staff is making adjustments. Thank heavens for generators and extension cords. Also thankful that one of the groups has been working with staff and making due with a smaller site. One of the groups has 50 people. Give or take a few. The other has 30?
I have three candles lit. My diffusers are also going strong.
Can’t help wishing for PAST THANKSGIVINGS. Memories Flood in this time of year.
From Sarah : This will be short. It’s almost 3:30 and Danny will be off shortly. As in any time. I was gone most of the days. I had something I ABSOLUTELY HAD TO DO (Nothing to do with Thanksgiving or the holidays). I ended up GETTING A LOT DONE. I AM THANKFUL that I was able to get something notarized and sent off with too much of a problem. (My bank was the only hitch. They don’t do certain property transfers. I was TOLD to go to UPS.) I AM THANKFUL that the roads weren’t nearly as crowded as I thought they would be. Everyone was in a GREAT MOOD. I AM THANKFUL that I was feeling good. That the weather was good for Florida. I got some things done that I have put off doing for a long, long time. It was just a good day. So no time today on the computer. That probably did me some good. I AM THANKFUL for the HUG I GOT . Happy THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!! Danny works tomorrow. I plan to volunteer or just hang out with him. We have our ANNUAL THANKSGIVING DINNER at the park. I need to cook tonight. Everything turned out great for the church dinners we did for the shut ins and less fortunate. Danny and I did an awesome job on our end. So did everyone else. Enjoy family time. Love And Hugs, Sarah
In the United States, we are preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving. This means cooking a large turkey and additional side dishes: peas, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and more. This doesn’t include desserts like pie, all kinds of pies. Then you watch a football game, where many of the watchers fall asleep because they ate too […]
Philippians 2:14 – Do all things without murmurings and disputing: Ephesians 4:29 – Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. What we complain about someone else would be thankful for! We complain about our jobs […]
“Friends, you may have heard the news about our next Online Bible Study, One Thousand Gifts with Ann Voskamp, and feel yourself holding back, maybe hesitating a little, because to be honest… you don’t feel very thankful.
I get it…
This may be a scraping season for you. It is for me, too. I’ve experienced trauma and grief this year like I didn’t know was possible. And, my heart needs this study. Maybe yours does, too.
One Thousand Gifts is especially for those of us who are tired, or hurting, or just don’t feel very grateful right now given our circumstances. We don’t want to miss what God has for us! This study is an invitation to look again, to open our eyes to see God’s goodness where we may not see it right now. It’s a beckoning to wake up, to be strengthened, enlivened, and to allow gratitude to grow even among thorns and thistles.”
From Sarah; After reading this post I am so glad I decided to do this study NOW! I have been in a season of despair way too long.
