Happy Thanksgiving!

~ Sam P. Spade, Secret Agent Saint ~
 
 Thank God for what you have
 Ask Him for what you need
Work for what you want

Snow storms and high winds are buffeting the farm but the chimney dampers are closed, oil in the furnace, propane in the tank and wood on the porch...soon to be in the stove and lit. Although loved ones are missing, HOME is still both succor and comfort to me.

This afternoon  was spent in the company of friends; we shared a meal, laughter and made more memories, and now evening plans include a flannel night gown, fuzzy slippers, loving hugs from all dogs, some cats and a good read on the Kindle. No, I didn't eat too much although the temptation was great; as Goldilocks said, "It was just right!"

Last Sunday's Prayer Keeping has been updated but if there are any more names, please let me know. My thoughts are with some blog land friends who have sustained the loss of their husband and others who are spending this holiday without the one they love. It's difficult and only those who've lost their spouse know; the rest can't even imagine...and you may thank God for that gift. Hold close the good memories and know God's great mercy covers you and your name is on the palm of His hand. He has a plan for you to prosper and do well, just hold on and choose to trust Him.

God loves you with an everlasting love and underneath are His everlasting arms.

Blessings ~ God's gifts, known and unknown ~ friends ~ good food ~ honest work ~ a warm house ~ HOME ~

  13. Wonderful words of consolation and encouragements for lovers, who have lost their partner in THIS world, but not in their heart - and they always life connection and in Gods grace. There is an energy, which is forever and never can die. Life is no more to destroy - Christ is born into this world and has killed the death.

    Have a blessed time of strong hope, faith, love!

    The dog on the photo is so nice, and I imagine, you, too in your flannel night-shirt, with your cats and dogs!

  14. Beautiful post. My husband died about a year ago. God is a great help. My dogs are a blessing. I shared Thanksgiving with friends, went home, donned flannel pj`s and sat in my cozy chair by the stove. Me and my dogs. It was nice. Your blog is encouraging. Thanks.
