What Are You Thankful For?

Giving Thanks

Hello dear readers!  I have returned home after being away for about twelve days with a family member who was quite ill. As are most situations like this, the illness was totally unexpected and was one of those times when you quickly throw things in the car and head out. Thank you so very much for your kind thoughts and prayers. Each and every prayer was felt and I must say that I feel that my family member is a walking miracle! To move from ICU to a step-down unit to a rehab center and, tonight, I heard that she may be released to go home by the end of this week! I am celebrating Thanksgiving early with so much praise to God and thankfulness for His healing grace in my heart!

Although I'm always happy to see my family, this visit was quite stressful because we were all so worried about our loved one. It was hard to be away from the Mr. and Cassie and Garden for such a long period of time. The mountains looked so wonderful Sunday evening as we got closer and closer to home! I hope you will join me in celebrating all the things we have in our lives for which we can give thanks. Feel free to mention a few in the comments if you like! And continued prayers for "S" are appreciated. 

"Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name."
I Chronicles 29:13

With Thanksgiving,

Praise God for healing!!! I will continue to pray. Your picture of the mountains is gorgeous Debbie! There is so much to be thankful for, even in the midst of our struggles. It was a wonderful gift to give S to go to be with her through her time of need. I'm sure it's good to be home!
