Be Thankful

Though we are thankful all the days of the year, Thanksgiving is when most families get together, lots of food is prepared and many thanks are given. 

What I am most thankful for is Jesus Christ. I am also thankful that I was raised in a Christian home. In a world like today, I can have the peace and understanding that I do not think I would have without knowing who is in control. Next, I am thankful for answered prayers. My daughter and my husband both are just that. They both have given me a personal testimony. 

“Be Thankful”
Me and my sister attended a girls night out at our church. We listened to a couple ladies speak about their personal experiences with faith and thankfulness. There was lots of food. 
Let me just say, “when you get a forty Baptist women together, there is going to be a lot of food”. 
We had homemade soups, salads, and all the snacks you need as each lady brought at dish. I brought a tray of mini doughnuts since my choice to go was last minute due to my schedule. 

After we ate we did a pallet painting. We had a model to copy. I went with the instructed painting while some of the others changed theirs up a bit with different colors and styles.

Now I have another piece of Fall decor and it sits on my mantel. Every time I look at it, I can think about the fun and fellowship I had with 38 friends and 1 sister in which I am very thankful for. She is the only Sister I have.


  1. You are an inspiration to all! I too am so thankful to know our Lord and Savior! Sounds like y'all had a great time and that is a pretty cute design made from a pallet! I know the food was good too!
    Great post.

  2. I am very grateful to have my foundation in Christ. I'm by no means the best Christian, but I am a dependent one.

    Beautiful pallet. I love to paint and craft, I'm just not very good at it.

  3. Loved the visit today. I get a kick out of just thinking about 'special ladies' and mothers. But having a wife who had two sisters and seeing their close knit love, I just cannot forget the fun they had together, my girl has missed the females in her family life. We enjoy reading of your devotion and life.

  4. Had to smile when you mentioned food, know exactly what you mean. I'm a Baptist too. :)
    I'm also thankful for some prayers that have NOT be answered how I wanted them to be!!
    Like that pallet you made.

  5. Aren't those meetings just the greatest? I have not been to a women's church meeting in a lot of years. I always came home blessed because of the things I heard there-the personal testimonies usually blow me away. xo Diana. ps- Love the sign!

  6. Cute Fall decor Lisa! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
