Since it is Thanksgiving and all…
I thought I’d start by sharing one of my favorite Bible verses …
“Rejoice in the Lord Always, I will say it again rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. the Lord is near you. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with Thanksgiving, present your requests to God. and the Peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally Brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think on such things.”
it is amazing how your mind & spirit become naturally thankful in ALL circumstances when you set your mind on Him and give Him Thanks for ALL things… even in the hard things… we can Thank Him for being with us…for loving us unconditionally… for Hope.
On with my week at a glance – scavenger hunt style =) with Thanksgiving!~
Sammy’s normal vision is 20/200 = legally blind
there is no correction available for the kind of low vision he has
alas – it is just a small part of the amazing little man he is.
we muddle through life pretty happy
large print included
or the help of his tool that magnifies words
sometimes he is even the cool kid ~
when you have cool tools to use =)
Sammy’s boyhood is not defined by his vision
it is simply how God made him
beautifully and wonderfully made =)
I give Thanks to God daily for the blessing he is in our lives!
and we walk on a path that we would have never otherwise known
the path God has for us is way better than our own path!
This bench is a photo map of our city… kinda … sorta…
well… for those of us who know the city anyway!
I love this bench!
I want to make one for my front yard!!
I am Thankful to live in such a fun/funky/artistic city.
I LOVE metal buttons on my pants
rather than snaps or plastic buttons or (shudder) Hooks
i’m funny that way
button fly – even better
yes – yes I do wear men’s pants – why do you ask?
I am forever thankful for button fly Levis. really! =)
we have a lot of apple trees in my neck of the woods
that haven’t been plucked (tragic!)
my photo doesn’t do it justice
apple trees with no leaves and a whole lot of apples = pretty
country kind of pretty – right here in the city =)
today when I went to photograph it with my camera
No SD card – seriously!
this poor quality pic was snapped with my cell
doctored a bit
not so much to my liking
anyway – its all I have for fruit
I am Thankful for living in the apple state
it = lots of fresh pressed apple cider!
just picked up an order of Partylite candles this morning
the Strong Scent of spiced cider, spiced vanilla, holiday spice and mulberry fills me house ~ and I haven’t even put a flame to one yet! =) love!
I am thankful for candles – esp. when we lose power to stormy weather!
its supposed to be a blustery week – this week!
I’m Thankful for this little Rascal too
he got a hair cut this week
its amazing how strong one’s affections can be for their Adorable pets, eh?
Alrightygoodthen ~ busy but short week ahead!
Hope y’all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
I am looking forward to eating yummy food with family
and then burying my nose in a book
with hot coffee in hand & my new candles burning
while the blustery rain beats on the windows
and the roof and the gutters and the hardyplank siding
and drenches our lawn puddling in our streets and walkways
you get the idea! =) its going to be a WET week!
Oh – and don’t forget leftover turkey sandwiches!!
I’m looking forward to leftover turkey! YUM.
How about you? what are you looking forward to this week??
where the photo scavenger hunt fun begins =)
