Last month: A simple, thankful life in September


  1. I live your Silver Sundays!
    What a wonderful idea to just reflect on the good that God has blessed us with!


  2. I am so very thankful to our Lord and Savior that I can't begin to list all of them, but to make a list short, I am most thankful for the salvation that Jesus Christ has given to me and my husband. I am thankful for the good health we both have.
    I am also thankful that He has everything under control in our lives, even if we don't realize it.

    As to nature, I am thankful that I am able to feed the deer, the squirrels, the birds (and even one time a mommy bear and her two cubs), sunshine and rain, wind and storms; just all the things that He created for us.

  3. I am so thankful for finding your are such a blessing to me!
