Thankful Thursday

Mr D and I enjoyed a peaceful day yesterday, nothing much happening.  A new house is being built across the street and I enjoy watching the progress from my front window.   I feel sorry for the workers because it's so hot outside.  Many of them wore big brim hats and long sleeve shirts to protect them from the sun.  Thankfully there are several big trees close by so they do have some shade during the day.

I  am very thankful for such a pleasant day.

Drawing a picture of Jesus

A kindergarten teacher was walking around her classroom while her students drew pictures. One little girl was scribbling so intently that the teacher asked what she was drawing. The little girl replied, “I’m drawing a picture of Jesus.” The teacher said, “Oh honey, nobody really knows for sure what Jesus looked like.” The little girl, without missing a beat, responded, “They will in a minute.”

I'm very thankful for laughter, it makes me feel good.

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”
Proverbs 17:22

Merica Update:

First day of school is hard work, she didn't last long when she got home.  The little red spot on her cheek is a sticker from her teacher for being good.

I am so thankful for my grandchildren, they surely bless my heart.

Until Next Time

Hello everyone!  So glad you've stopped by for a visit.

Isn't our God wonderful?!!

Rejoicing in His mercies 💟

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”

Lamentations 3:22-25

Every morning is a fresh start with our Father.

Great is Thy faithfulness,” O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.
“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!”
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!
 Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
 Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

George Beverly Shea (1909-2013), the famous Canadian-born singer of the Billy Graham Crusades, 
introduced this hymn to those attending the evangelistic meetings in Great Britain in 1954. It immediately
became a favorite.

I have some great news to share.  Mr D and I are going to be great, great grands again.  Adalynn is going to be a big sister.

Today is Merica's first day of school. (pre-K)

Her Momma said she was a little nervous, but excited too.

The mail just came and I received a new Country Door magazine.  I'll be browsing the pages for a while.

Until Next Time
