Scripture to Live By:
Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.
Thanksgiving is almost here. I hope each of you will be spending it with loved ones and sharing things you are very thankful for. I am so very thankful for my family and friends, even though I will not be spending Thanksgiving with them.
I am most thankful for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who loved me and gave His life for me that I might have life eternal. When I was a little girl I memorized Psalm 100 and it is still one of my favorite psalms. I think it is an appropriate scripture to use around my table at the Thanksgiving meal. He is worthy of our praise and gratitude this Thanksgiving.

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love to decorate, cook, bake, make and give gifts, listen to Christmas music. I love a fire in the fire place and spending time with friends and family.
What a special time of the year.
Rejoicing in the one who made it possible.
