The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Thankful Thursday

Today I am so very Thankful for the sunshine. On the way to take Sam to school it was absolutely beautiful, the sun shining down through the clouds and the thick fog. It was truly a beautiful morning and after what, 2 weeks of rain that is much to be thankful for. Still looking forward to cooler fall weather ahead!!

So thankful that Sam's school got to participate in see you at the pole this week. To be able to meet together at the flag pole at school and pray for our country and our community together with classmates is AWESOME!!
Thankful for all the things that go along with fall..... the cool crisp air..... mums, pumpkins, corn stalks, hay bales to decorate with! Its my favorite time of the year and the beginning of lots of fun times. We always have so much fun going to the pumpkin patch and all the other fall festivities. Oh and need to make a trip to Scotts apple orchard too.... apples, apple cider, and of course a few candy apples!! and Alabama football!! Can you tell I LOVE FALL!!

As always I am thankful for my wonderful family, friends, including all my bloggin friends!

Still working on being excited about Fall. I LOVE summer & must admit I get in a Fall funk...I have to mourn the end of Summer =(
But I'm working on it & an apple slush from Scotts will definitely help...that was already on my "to do list" for the week!

Tho I live in Texas I've been to Scott's several times...with Barbara and the boys...I love it. Last month she was here on one of her many visits to be with me and her dad and brought us a basket of Scott's apples...I shared them with the hospital staff that were working that day...we all enjoyed them.
Thank you for your many comments on my blog...and for holding us up to our Lord.

You have a beautiful blog! I was reading some of your posts and Sam's baptism brought tears to my eyes. I remember well when my older 3 were baptised.It is such a beautiful thing when our children start to take ownership of their faith. Just wait, it gets better and better the older they get. My youngest has been asking and we have recently changed churches so I'm sure it will be soon.
