Today is October 31st the end of the month, and the beginning of the ‘holiday season’.
The leaves are dropping off the trees now, the air is becoming cooler, rain is the normal for us too.
I love a storm where the trees sway and the wind sounds powerful and mighty.
Especially if we have a fire in the fireplace and the house is warm.
We were in a barn a few weeks ago at a wedding and it was the worst storm of the season.
The winds hit close to 61 miles per hour and the barn floor shook and creaked and the windows rocked as the rain beat against them.
It was a bit scary because the force of the wind was so strong.
The wedding was beautiful and we all survived it and for that we were thankful.
At home we dug out the candles and flashlights just incase we might need them.
We stocked our pantry and refrigerator just because, we didn’t know if another storm was brewing.
I am glad November is coming.
I love the holiday season full of festive decorations and family meals.
Thanksgiving will soon be here and as we enter into the new month I challenge us tomorrow to start a 30 days of gratitude notebook.
To have gratitude is to have the quality or feeling of being grateful, being thankful.
This is Thanksgivings message.
Giving thanks for all that we have and for all that we are blessed with, for life, health and family.
For good friends and freedoms.
This week is our anniversary so I am grateful already for a husband who has walked alongside me, even when the journey was not easy.
Next week we see who our next President of our United states will be.
Shall we wait with anticipation and wonder who it will be?
Our freedoms give us choice.
We are allowed to choose and in that choice making decision the final result will come out.
A new season will begin on many levels.
Will we remain thankful, blessed and in peace no matter what takes place?
I realized the words ‘give thanks’ are in the bible 48 times.
I don’t think that is an accident, that we are encouraged to give thanks.
1 Chronicles 29:13
Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.
Psalm 106:47
Save us, Lord our God, and gather us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise.
Psalm 118:21
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
