Thanksgivng

It was a different kind of Thanksgiving this year.  My two daughters are out of state and my son went to have Thanksgiving dinner with his in-laws so Michael and I were on our own.  So breaking from our tradition of having a meal at home, we went out to dinner with friends.  It was the first time we’ve ever done that and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.  I didn’t think the food would be as good as mine.  🙂  But it was very good!!

God gives good gifts and even though the season of my life is changing and will continue to change, I can rejoice in those good gifts.

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”  (Psalm 118:24)

daily life, faith life, nature study, simple living, thankfulness

ESG: My favourite picture of the month September

I’m doing my Swap this month as a blog post.  My favorite picture of the month is actually a series of pictures.  One evening when I was leaving a nearby craft store (where else??), I stepped out into the parking lot and was greeted with this magnificent sunset.  I stood in the parking lot and took this series.  There was another person taking pictures also but there were also many who were not even looking up!

These were taken with my phone and I have not edited them in any way.  I think this is one of those “once in a lifetime” moments and I’m glad I was able to witness it.

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork–Psalm 19:1
