Just wanted to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving I will be busy with school Monday and Tuesday and trying to get my boys packed and ready for their trip with their dad to NC., then Wed, Dylan and I are head to Operation Christmas child to work with our local 4-H! I love doing this its great fun and a great way to start the holidays.
Speaking of holidays do you know what holiday means? It means holy day, a day to show reverence. So this Thanksgiving lets remember the real reason this holiday exist, its not for the feast, family, football and friends. But its a day to show thanks to our heavenly father for ALL that he has given us not just on Thanksgiving but everyday throughout the year. This world has taken Christ out of this holiday, most call it turkey day and most just think about the feast. Many years ago our founding fathers set this day aside to pray, read the Bible and give thanks to God for his blessings he had given them each year, so this year don't just say a prayer over the food to eat, truly give thanks to God for all your blessings! Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello all! Just wanted to let you know about a sweet giveaway over at a friends blog, she and her dd are giving away a tea bag cozy. Run over and visit them at if you go check out some of her other post she is a sweet lady and I just love visiting her!

Day 6 Thankfulness

I am thankful today for the beautiful sunshine after the rain. It is truly amazing to think about what all God has to handle, when we need rain , when we need sun, wind, clouds, ect. In Luke 12:22-34 it talks about God feeding the ravens and the lilies growing. God takes care of them and he loves us more than the birds and flowers so we should know he will take care of us! He knows what we need and when we need it, although our timing may not be the same as his or our wants and desires may not be what he desires for us. When it comes down to it he knows what is best for us, all the time! Thank you father for taking care of me! Blessings,Karen

Thankfulness Day 4 & 5

I was afraid I was going to get behind and so today I'm doing two days in one here. I am so thankful for a wonderful mom and Grandmother. I lost my grandmama about two weeks ago and I am just so thankful for all the years the Lord allowed me to have with her. My mom was so faithful in taking care of her for many years and I know what a void she has in her life as well. But we are so thankful that she is whole again and in no more pain. She has her vision and hearing back and she is in heaven with our heavenly father! My mom is always helping me here and there , picking up kids, running to the store or just coming over to lend a hand. I am thankful for a mom who is giving and loves us so much! So today I am thankful for to faith loving women who have impacted my life in so many ways!
Hope all of you are having a great week so far! Blessings!

Day 3 thankfulness

Today and everyday I am thankful for such sweet and caring pastors! They are filled with the Holy Spirit and not afraid to follow his lead, even though we may not follow the norm for worship each week. We follow a living God who knows what we need and when we need it. For all of you pastors and pastor wives I thank you for all you do for your church family and for the body of Christ! I love you all!! Blessings for a great week and remember to let your light shine!

With us getting closer to Thanksgiving I wanted to challenge each of you to stop each day and think of one thing you are thankful for, Today I am thankful for so much. Its hard to know where to begin,but first and foremost I am thankful for my heavenly father for holding my hand each and everyday! He continues to bless me daily and I cannot put into words how much he does for me and shows his love for me daily. He never gave up on this country girl and he wont give up on you. If your not saved and don't know Christ I urge you to read Gods word, Pray, confess your sins, because no matter what you've done God allows U turns and he will forgive you. He loves you, and he can bring you back from a life of sin and put you in the place where he wants you to be, no road is easy but when you have a daddy that is there for you and will never let you down( because every man will at some point or time let you down, God won't) you can be assured you will come up and out a better person.
So that's all for now, tomorrow I will be back and share with you another thing I'm thankful for, hope each of you has a blessed Friday!
