My little ones

I am so thankful for the grandchildren God has brought into our lives.....our oldest granddaughter, Jbear...our only grandson, Gingerbread man...and our newest gift, Sbug...our 5 month old granddaughter....they truly are gifts and bring so much joy to our hearts.   God, you are wonderful!

I voted.

So I did my civic duty today and was the first really cold smoke-blowing day we've had with a leaf stripping rain coming down from daybreak.....and what do I see, but hundreds of coffee drinking, smart phone addicted, spoiled to central heat and air, never step outside except to get the mail or run to the grocery, city dwellers wading through puddles ankle deep, queuing up to patiently wait their vote.   It was awesome and I confess, I got a bit teary eyed when after 90 minutes my turn finally arrived to make my choices and cast my ballot.  What an amazing country we live in...and I am SO thankful for it!

I am incredibly thankful for my amazing husband.  He has been Christ to me in so many ways, day after day after day...loving me, giving himself to me and our family, challenging me, wooing me...long after the first blush of our marriage....I often think that he is the reason I am saved...Not that he is God, but he has been God to me...over and over....and thorough him the Holy Spirit has been able to break through my blindness and walls and grow Jesus in me.   Thank you, Lord, for this man you have given me.  I am truly blessed!

I think I will try and post...either here or on Facebook, something every day that I am thankful for during this season of Thanksgiving/November.    Today I am thankful for beautiful Autumn days, cool breezes and sunny days....
We have wonderful Autumns in the South....brilliant skies and bright foliage...much of which hasn't even begun to change here near the city.  We have extremely pleasant weather for much of it...with temps ranging from the 30s at night to 60-70 degrees during the day.  I love sitting on my front porch in the afternoons with the sun beating on me, warming me to my bones....delicious!   Soon the rain will come and wash away the beautiful leaves...soon the air will chill, too much to enjoy the porch but for now.... I will be thankful for God's goodness in Autumn.
