Happy Thanksgiving

Hello, I just stopped by to wish you a wonderful 
Thanksgiving this coming week. and wanted to share 
Some fun and beautiful pictures and quotes on  Thankfulness.  And Thanksgiving. :)
So wishing you a very joyous and heart filled Thanksgiving.
1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 
Be Joyful Always; Pray continually; Give Thanks in all circumstances,
For this is God's will for you and Christ Jesus
"Gratitude is born in hearts that take time to count past mercies." 
[Charles E. Jefferson]

          "In ordinary life we hardly realize that 
we receive a great deal more than we give,
            and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich." 
[Dietrich Bonhoeffer]

"Life without thankfulness is devoid of love and passion. Hope without thankfulness is lacking in fine perception. 
Faith without thankfulness lacks strength and fortitude.
Every virtue divorced 
from thankfulness is maimed and
limps along the spiritual road."
[John Henry Jowett]

 "Perhaps it takes a purer faith to praise God for unrealized blessings than for those we once enjoyed or those we enjoy now." 
 [A. W. Tozer]

"You say, 'If I had a little more, 
I should be very satisfied.' 
You make a mistake. 
         If you are not content with what you have,
                                       you would not be satisfied if it were doubled." 
[Charles Haddon Spurgeon]
"Remember God's bounty in the year.
String the pearls of His favor. Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light! Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude!"
[Henry Ward Beecher]

"No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope or fear;
But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here."
[John Greenleaf Whittier] 
"We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction."  
[Harry A. Ironside]

“Thanksgiving is more than eating, Chuck…we should just be thankful for being together.”
[after Snoopy and Woodstock accidentally shoot Snoopy's rifle] Come on, Snoopy. We don't have any time for this playing around. The guests will be here pretty soon, so please get ready to help serve them.
[Snoopy sighs]  
Charlie Brown: We've got ANOTHER holiday to worry about. It seems Thanksgiving Day is upon us.
Sally Brown: I haven't even finished eating all of my Halloween candy.

      "O Lord, who lends me life, lend me a heart replete with thankfulness."

“A thanksgiving-day hath a double precedency of a fast-day.
On a fast-day we eye God’s anger; on a thanksgiving-day we look to God’s favor.
In the former we specially mind our corruptions; in the latter, God’s compassions;
therefore a fast-day calls for sorrow, a thanksgiving-day for joy.
But the Lord’s day is the highest thanksgiving day.”
[George Swinnock ]

 "Our rural ancestors, with little blest, patient of labor when the end was rest, indulged the day that housed their annual grain, with feasts, and off'rings, and a thankful strain."  [Alexander Pope]

"The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts.
No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving."
[H. U. Westermayer]

"No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope or fear;
But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here."
[John Greenleaf Whittier]
Psalm 100:4-5 
"Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; 
give thanks to him and praise his name. 
For the Lord is good and his love endures for ever; 
his faithfulness continues through all generations."

Just a quick note. ;)

Yes I am alive , no I haven't abandoned you guys 
and it all boils down to the simple fact that I have been super  busy. .... 
the reason you may ask?
 Is this 

This is the trailer my mother and father in law are going to let us use... 
but it has been a storage unit for the past twelve years... 
and there was so much to do... 
It is not finished yet, and I have more pictures to post.
Just wanted to let you know that I was alive lol 
and asking you to please not give up on me... 
Keep us in your prayers. the trailer isn't finished and 
there is so mucch to do... plus Willie's school 
is keeping him ever so busy, and with everything 
the big picture looks very unorganized and muddled.
Which drives me crazy because I like to make my 
lists and have my plans , and follow through with them until I 
have reached them... in otther words 
My husband on the other hand is not that way... 
He is laid back and very calm and collected.
 Which also helps me, because he can calm me down with 
one look or word.
I am trying to be patient, but I need your prayers
because God is teaching me something big. 
So I need to go for the evening, but just thought I would drop a line and say hi. :)
