Pause and Give Thanks

In our busy world today we sometimes forget to pause and give thanks for the little things. I give thanks every day but I am especially liking the "30 Days of Thanksgiving" that I'm doing on Facebook. It gives me a chance to tell everyone one of the things I am thankful for that day. I seen this poem and wanted to share it with you today.

The First Thanksgiving
When the Pilgrims
first gathered together to share
with their Indian friends
in the mild autumn air,
they lifted the voices
in jubilant praise
for the bread on the table,
the berries and maize,
for field and for forest,
for turkey and deer,
for the bountiful crops
they were blessed with that year.
They were thankful for these
as they feasted away,
and as they were thankful
we're thankful today.

I am hoping you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving and blessings!! Don't forget to pause and give thanks everyday!

Have a blessed day!

Hello! Anyone there?

I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted. This year has just flown by hasn't it? I am not going to play catch up on this post though. Time just seems to have got away with me. I remember when there wasn't a day that I wouldn't write a post. Or even a day I would go without reading others posts. Now I find it very rare I am even on the internet. I do try to get on Facebook but really I'm not even on there as much as I use to be. I have been looking at my blog a couple of times a month. I guess just to make sure it's still here.

I got a little sad last night and a little happy too. My oldest grandson is off to K4 next week. Last night he had his orientation and that is why the mixed emotions. They came over here afterwards to pick up my youngest grandson and after they left I felt like blogging. So here I am!

First just a little picture of my little man at orientation.

He is just sooo excited about going to school. He’s the tallest in his class, just like his momma was. He is also attending the same K4 school his mom attended. I remember so clearly when she was going there, can’t hardly believe my grandchild is going there now. It’s a wonderful school and my daughter’s niece went there a couple of years ago. So we know it’s still as good as it was when I sent my daughter there. She was reading before the end of the year and as a result always got good grades.

I have a few things I want to blog about but like I said earlier not this post. I hope to be back by Monday and try to get back into the habit of blogging again. I have missed my blogging friends and hope to get back to catching up on their lives. Until later y’all

Have a blessed day!

A New Years Poem

Another Year Is Dawning

Another year is dawning,
Dear Master, let it be,
In working, or in waiting,
Another year with Thee.

Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness
In the shining of Thy face.

Another year of progress,
Another year of praise,
Another year of proving
Thy presence all the days.

Another year of service,
Of witness of Thy love,
Another year of training
For holier work above.

Another year is dawning,
Dear Master, let it be
On earth, or else in heaven
Another year for Thee. 
Author - Francis Ridley Havergal 


Have a blessed day!
