Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our wonderful readers! I am thankful for so many things in my life as I am sure you are as well! If you are wondering how you can acknowledge all of your thanks, ask each person at your dinner table today to share one thing that they are thankful for! My family and I have done this in the past and it is really very special. I am so thankful for my amazing husband who is always there for my son and me, for our parents and family and most of all, my Lord, Jesus!

My mom and I are also very thankful for your dedication to our blog! 

I thought you would enjoy reading some quotes that I found regarding thanksgiving! Also, if you like the image that I posted above, you can find it here: It is free, however, if you use it, the artist asks that you give credit and leave a message for them on how it was used. I added the text "Happy Thanksgiving!" Wouldn't these make lovely place cards for your guests today? How about asking each guest to write one thing they are thankful for on their card or copy and paste some of the quotes I have below onto each card for sharing amongst family and friends today?

As you read below, I am wishing you and yours a very Happy, safe Thanksgiving!  


• Be joyful always, pray at all times, be thankful in all circumstances. (1 Thessalonians 5:16)

•Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. (Erma Bombeck)

Do not get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. (Galatians 6:9)

•A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues. (Cicero)

•God gave us our relatives; thank God we can choose our friends. (Ethel Watts Mumford)

•Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds. (Theodore Roosevelt)

•For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
