Thanksgiving Day!!


November 20, 2017

Welcome to my Monday Blog, my dear Friends!!

This week we celebrate one of our most beloved holidays in this great country of ours – Thanksgiving Day!! Oh, what wonderful memories I have of this special occasion with family and friends! As this Thanksgiving draws near, it’s the perfect time to consider all our blessings and the incredible gifts our Savior has bestowed upon us.

We have four days to revisit this past year and embrace in our own individual ways, the many blessings we have received from our heavenly Father. Even many of our “unanswered” prayers have by now most likely, shown us that they too, are blessings. He always knows what’s best for us, doesn’t He? I’m most thankful for that!!

May we all be mindful of every single one of our gifts and humble ourselves in His sight. He sees all, He knows all and He blesses all. Amen!!

Thanksgiving Day Prayer

Lord, so often times, as any other day, When we sit down to our meal and pray,

We hurry along and make fast the blessing, Thanks , amen, Now please pass the dressing.

We’re slaves to the ol factory overload, We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold. 

But Lord, I’d like to take a few minutes more, To really give thanks to what I’m thankful for.

For my family, my health, a nice soft bed, My friends , my freedom, a roof over my head,

I’m thankful right now to be surrounded by those, Whose lives touch me more than they’ll ever possibly know, 

Thankful Lord, that You’ve blessed me beyond measure, Thankful that in my heart lives life’s greatest treasure,

Dear Jesus, resides in that place, And I’m ever so grateful for Your unending grace.

So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You’ve provided,

And bless each and every person invited. 



Let us remember,  “when we pray within His will, in the authority of Jesus, persistently, unselfishly, and in faith, we will receive what we need.”  – 2 Corinthians 12:7  

GOD is Good! GOD is Great!! always!!!    

I love you,


A special “Thank You”, to Scott Wesemann for his gracious Thanksgiving Prayer.
