I can do all things through....

Christ who strengthens me - Phil 4:13.  This by far is one of my favorite bible verses and without my faith and God in my life I honestly cannot imagine where I would be.  Life is hard enough and I am so thankful in this time of Thanksgiving for answered prayers which came today in the form of two different job offers.  I didn't see them coming but am so happy that some prayers are being answered especially after my alarm didn't go off.  Anyway just wanted to give credit where credit is due today. 

Today it was 80 degrees and a beautiful day here in Texas.  God's beauty is everywhere and the changing of tree colors is beyond words at my age.  I only wish the weather would stay like this but we are due for a very cold Thanksgiving and temps below 30. 

I am looking forward to spending time this week with loved ones counting our many blessings and His protection.  What traditions do you have on this special day?  What are your fondest memories growing up?  What do you want your children to remember about this day?  I want my daughter to be grateful and thankful everyday for her faith, family and friends and to remember that even at her age that everyday is a gift and it is up to God's children to share his love with others.  That is takes so little to make the world a better place and even at the tender age of 10 she cand do so much to make the world a better place.  She is amazing and I am so proud of who she is and the heart she has today when we live in a fallen world.  Did I mention she tried out for the spelling bee and was one of 20 to make it for her school.  So proud and happy for her!  So one of my fond memories of Thanksgiving was watching Charlie Browns specials and also watching the Macy Parade. 

One more day of school and work and then it is 4 days off to relax and enjoy my family.  Turkey, games, Dallas football and time to be thankful for the gift of life as it is today. 

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by today,  I have some great pictures to share this week but have to make the images smaller in order to show here so hopefully in the next 24 hours I will have some fun and cute pictures of the last couple of weeks.
