“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18

God has been so good to us as a family.

Even in the down times the Lord has lifted us up.

Even in the uncertain times the Lord has brought assurance of His presence.

Even in the sad times the Lord has given comfort beyond our sorrow.

Don't think of God's provision for us as an entitlement but of His blessing and goodness to us.

Don't take for granted the people that the Lord has brought into your life as one's to serve but ones to be served.

We don't know what a year may bring but we trust the One who does.

We don't know how our life journey may twist and turn but we know the One who will never leave or forsake.

Let's take time to remember what the Lord has done and not to forget all His benefits.

You are all deeply loved with the deep love of Jesus.

My heart is filled with thanksgiving for each of you and I pray God's richest blessing for all of you.

Keep an attitude of gratitude !!!

None Worse for the Wear...

"Giving is the secret of a healthy life...not necessarily money, but whatever a man has of encouragement and sympathy and understanding."
These past few weeks I've been the recipient of a lot of encouragement, sympathy, and understanding. I've got a new heart valve and am none worse for the wear--a little slow still, but healing and doing well. I long to encourage each of you with visits and time, prayer, and to be available with a word of encouragement, but since I'm having to be at home for the healing to take place, I'll be satisfied with thinking of you and praying for you. We've had several sweet gifts of meals, visits, flowers, and calls and all are such a blessing to me at this time. Last night we had a sweet time with Freddy's family and to listen to their kids play Bible Trivia and beat their Grandpa at it was pretty amazing! I've had a good report from the doctor--and now will be patient and follow doctor's orders!
Thank you for everything each of you have done for Becky and I--it's good to be back blogging again.

How Can I Say Thanks ?

“I would thank you from the bottom of my heart, but for you my heart has no bottom. “ ~Author Unknown

My Tribute – Andre Crouch

How can I say thanks for the things you have done for me? Things so undeserved, yet you gave to prove your love for me; the voices of a million angels could not express my gratitude. All that I am and ever hope to be, I owe it all to Thee.

To God be the glory, to God be the glory, to God be the glory for the things He has done. With His blood He has saved me, with His power He has raised me; to God be the glory for the things He has done.

Just let me live my life, let it pleasing, Lord to Thee, and if I gain any praise, let it go to Calvary.

To God be the glory, to God be the glory, to God be the glory for the things He has done
