Thanksgiving, EH?!

It's a beautiful Autumn day with cool temperatures
and leaves blowing in the wind.
The perfect day for sitting under the tree while enjoying a hot drink 
and pondering God's Word.

Please join me...
I have an extra mug of hot cocoa with marshmallows waiting for you :)


Today is also Thanksgiving in Canada
and I want to wish my blogging friends from Canada
a very Happy Thanksgiving!


My dad's side of the family are Canadian and even though some of us live in the states,
we still celebrate this blessed holiday.

There is so much to be thankful for -
sweet family, 
precious friends, 
loving Savior, 
Holy Bible,
salvation through Jesus,
beautiful sunshine,
gentle raindrops,
smiling faces,
delicious coffee,
hugs and kisses,
warmth of home,
snuggles and cuddles,
a captivating book,
the beauty of a rose,
the smell of pie cooking,
talks with God,
holding hands with the one you love,
playing the piano,
watching the snow fall,
eternity in heaven,
love and laughter,
walking in a meadow,
singing praises to God,
and the list could go on and on :)


I would love to read some of the things that you are grateful for, dear friends.
May you have a thankful day!

Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for so much this year...40 years of marriage, a baby grandson, our Seattle kids getting their first home, and oh so much more.
I can't let the day slip away without thanking GOD for you dear Stephanie. What a blessing your are in my life. It's so funny, because it all came about when my husband drew your name for my blog give away! I remember when he showed me the name, I thought, who is Stephanie? Now I know you and treasure you and just love ya so much dear friend. God is good and works in very interesting ways, even blogs!
Hugs, Linda

As I was reading your post and all that you are thankful for such as the smell of pie baking the pumpkin pie is in the oven right now giving off it's delicious aroma.
I could say ditto to all that you are thankful for, except of course playing the piano as I do not, but I am thankful for you when I get to sit and listen to those beautiful fingers grace the ivory keys.

We all have so much to thank the Lord for. Praise His Holy name!

I enjoyed my visit here today, beautiful photos as always.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a beautiful day my friend!

Today we have sunshine after a week of rain --- so maybe I'll join you outside for some Thanksgiving Time and I'll add "sunshine after rain" to my list of "Things to be Thankful For!"

Happy Autumn and Canadian Thanksgiving. It's so good to be back to your blog again. I'm afraid I got distracted by too many things. I will enjoy browsing through all the posts I have missed. And what a wonderful idea, to have a store for all your marvelous crafts. Hugs to you. Hope to see you yet this year.

Haddock said...

That mug of hot cocoa looks inviting.

Jazzmin said...

I enjoyed your warm, lovely post so much!! I love the sweet photos you shared, and felt like I was sitting right there with you, having a Fall-style picnic with a blanket spread out over the fallen leaves and drinking that delicious hot chocolate! (and I love your vintage picnic basket.)
I am blessed by the verse you shared also, and by reading the things you are thankful for.

I hope you and your family had a very blessed Canadian Thanksgiving!

Hugs to you!
Jazzmin

How sweet of you! I am thankful to my good health and living in a beautiful place. Very thankful for my sweet family and good husband, too. Enjoy your week my friend!

Robyn said...

Such a beautiful post, Stephanie and the mugs made me giggle.
We say our thanks around the table as well and it's always a joy and surprise to see what the kids will come up with.
I think the secret is to be thankful for every blessing, whether big or small, don't you?
There is so much to be joyful about in this world.

xoxo
Take care, sweet friend
