Family and Friends

Matthew 6: 19-21: Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

It all starts out with Papaw getting the turkey ready for Mamaw to cook. Gayle and I are so blessed to have our grandchildren living close by to share little moments like these. Of course, there's not much around this area to visit for entertainments ... so, just head over to our house..we are always into something.
My niece, her son Devon, and boyfriend Chris were able to be with us this year. Our youngest son Jason and wife Traci and of course the munchkins Hunter and Chloe along with our oldest son Jeremy (his fiance' had to work) plus Devon brought his daddy, Billy with him.
Yes, I was there also, but behind the camera as usual! We had a delightful afternoon and I pray we can get together again before this year ends.
Here is some "food" for thought......
An Inspiring Alphabet
A lthough things are not perfect
B ecause of trial or pain
C ontinue in happy giving
D o not begin to blame
E ven when the times are hard
F ierce winds are bound to blow
G od is forever able
H old on to what you know
I magine life without God's love
J oy would cease to be
K eep thanking God for all the things
L ove imparts to thee
M ove out of "Self Complaining"
N o weapon that is known
O n earth can yield the power
P rayer can do alone
Q uit looking at the future
R edeem the time at hand
S tart every day with worship
T o "thank" is a command
U ntil we get blessings
V ictorious in the sky
W e'll run the race with gratitude
X pect from God most high
Y es, there will be some bad times and there will be some good, but...
Z zzz peacefully at night... you're in the care of God!

You wrote this just for me, didn't you Betty? Thank you for grounding me and reminding me what is important. We are at our daughters to celebrate Thanksgiving with our family. That is what is important. Thank you and you guys have a wonderful time together!
