Happy Thanksgiving 2010

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to “recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness. Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be.—George Washington

I am thankful for the Godly home I was raised in
I am thankful for the loving parents the Lord blessed me with
I am thankful for the sister I was blessed with
I am thankful for my grandparents ~ all of whom are in heaven now
I am so thankful for the Godly, caring man the Lord blessed me with 5 1/2 years ago ~ I love you Greg
I am thankful for my 7 wonderful children
I am thankful for my beautiful home
I am very thankful for the opportunity to be a stay at home Mom and to homeschool my 3 youngest children
I am thankful for our 4 chickens, which bless me with 3-4 eggs everyday
I am thankful for our 5 dogs ~ their a handful, but we love them
I am thankful for our pigs ~ and James that cares for them
I am thankful for my wonderful garden spots and all the goodies we ate this year

I am so thankful that for the last 39 years, the Lord has been my Savior, Guide, Comforter, Provider, and Confidant.  My life is much richer and more blessed because of my faith in Jesus Christ.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Welcome to the farm ~ we are a blended family with 7 children (3 are married), 4 grandsons, 5 dogs, 3 rabbits, and 15 chickens living on 3 acres in Georgia. I love crafting, sewing, cooking & canning, recipes of all kinds, reading, playing with my little buddies, family time, travel, pinterest and most of all the Lord.
