Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.
~ 1 Chronicles 29:13
The week of Thanksgiving, more than any other time prompts us to recall what we are thankful for. I want to share a picture of a treasured Thanksgiving memory and a person I am thankful for... my niece Becky.
Thanksgiving 1991, my then 7 year old niece Becky made this turkey for me.(I wrote the date and her age on the back so I would always remember when...) As you can see, my treasured turkey has 4 legs. After all, did a 7 year old understand that a turkey only has 2 legs... or was it wishful thinking? I mean 4 turkey legs would mean more food for everyone!
Every year this turkey comes out on November 1st and graces the front of our refrigerator. (I keep saying eventually I will frame him) My niece Becky is now 24 years old and has a baby of her own. How time flies! Although I treasure the gift of my four legged turkey, I treasure my sweet niece Becky more... she is one of the children the Lord gave to me when I cried out to him for a child. For her I am eternally grateful to my God!
I hope you have something as sweet as the gift of a four legged turkey and a wonderful child that you treasure. It's simple, it didn't cost a thing and it's worth is far more than gold!
Yes Lord, I give you thanks, and praise your glorious name! Amen!

I love to share my home, my heart and my faith.
As I journey with the Lord through this earthly life it is my prayer that I come to know Him deeper and deeper each and every day.
