I AM




....The hustle and bustle and the here and yon........ I have to slow down a bit... I love the holidays so much and I decorate my house for Christmas the week before Thanksgiving...... It is my favorite time of year.... there will be just a hand full of people here this year and that makes me kind of sad.... Mom and Dad, my brother PE and his wife Alpha, my son Chris, myself and my husband... I do not get to see my oldest son and his three kids. Seems that families are fragmented more and more these days and I wish it were different..... However it does not stop me from decorating. I hold out high hopes of one of these days having the laughter of grandchildren running around my house but until then I am thankful.

........ The Lord gifted me 8 years ago with my soul mate and for that I am thankful. My youngest son Chris is a blessing to all those around him and he is the faithful son that has stood by me through bad and really bad. He is an investigator for the Chickasaw Nation here in town and is goooooooooooooooooooood looking..... I just cannot seem to get him married off....... I pray and pray but seems that the Lord is waiting for that special one.......(she needs to hurry, I need grand babies) for Chris I am thankful....... I have an older brother, Paul that is a friend as well as brother and his wife Alpha is more of a sister than an in-law. Then there is Mom and Dad....... they are precious people and I am thankful that the Lord has given them long life so that we may share the beautiful days of Autumn here in Oklahoma.
..... I am thankful for my health and for the quiet times as well as the rush..... I am thankful for a country that allows such freedom as we have and the right of every person to worship as they see fit.....
......Most of all I am thankful for the grace of God that allows me to be me and the mercy of God that forgives my sin...... I am thankful that God touches my life on a daily basic and lets me laugh and dance and enter into His presence.....

I am thankful that : He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me is love. Song of Solomon

Hey!!!!!!!!! I am thankful that I have found YOU!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all and to all a good night (oops this is for another day)

Be blessed

Denise,

I am also thankful that I found YOU! Your friendship is a real blessing to me.

I loved reading your thankful list. The grandbabies will come all in good time. :-) You would make an awesome grandma.

My grandsons and I are VERY close. I love spending time with them and doing silly things. They aren't as silly as they used to be, as they are now 10 and 12 and looking at the world in a more serious light. Please keep them in your prayers, as change is coming for them. I will email you about it.

Blessings for a wonderful day. I love you, my friend.

Mary

You're home sounds lovely and inviting at Christmas time. It's so much fun to decorate for Christmas. I especially love making a birthday cake for Jesus with my dd and then singing Happy Birthday together. Beautiful post today!
