Happy Thanksgiving!

I haven’t read this book (If You Give a Pig a Party) that is waiting for Olivia under mom’s Christmas tree…..

I’ll read it with Olivia when she wakes up.  (Olivia loves pigs!!)

But it does make me think about some other “ifs”……

If you give a friend a hug, you show them they are loved.

If you send a friend a “Happy Thanksgiving” text, you make them smile.

If you focus on your blessings, your troubles seem to fade.

If you live with an eternal perspective, grief cannot consume you.

If you put others first, you’ll forget all the things that “you” wish “you” could change about “your” life.

If you love people in spite of their imperfections, you’ll receive love in spite of your own.

I wanted to send a quick note and say “Happy Thanksgiving” from my family to yours!

We’re missing Nick greatly today, but my morning Bible reading was all about living with the Hope of Heaven and the GLORIES we will experience that will surpass any earthly suffering!!!

Romans 8:17-28 

Now if we are children, then we are heirs-heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Thank you, Father, for Your Word and Your WIsdom and Your Hope!

Thank you.

Loving all of you and thanking God for you,

  1. Thinking of you. You are amazing to me. Your love for the Father even though you’ve been through such hard times.

    My heart goes out to you and your family as you go through this time. I can not imagine.

    You have been.truly inspiring throughout the last year and a half to 2 years. And I still can not imagine.

    The grief. The heartache. Yet now, you have been through every first. A saddness in its own.

    I have truly grown to love you all. I pray for you. Just know you are never alone.

    I know that 2 days from now is the day. I am so sorry. You are so brave.

    But above all… please know that you are contagious.I love Jesus and you are part of the reason why.
