Thankful here in the holler...


I'm thankful for my wonderful husband. JP has put up with me for 25+ years. He is a wonderful father and provider, he loves me. You know, he doesn't even mind when the house is messy! Plus, you all know he's a great cook.
I'm thankful for my family. We all get along great, I even am blessed with wonderful in-laws. I like to call them in-loves because that is what they are to me :O)


Thankful for our church family--they're just great!
The grace and mercy of God towards me is astounding. He has protected me from serious harm and, to be honest, from myself. The lesson I'm learning (it's hard to learn lessons) is that I can trust Him for the outcome of my and my family's life. He cares about each detail!
Also, I find it amazing that I can be thankful for people that I've never met but we share our lives here in blogland. So, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours and, as always, blessings from the holler

Wonderful post, dear- we all have so much to be thankful for. I just recently heard a beautiful song on youtube by the Collingsworth Family called "I Can Trust Jesus" and I can't quit singing it- we truly CAN trust him and be thankful for all he gives us!
And JP sounds like a keeper!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I've always liked the idea of Thanksgiving - it is a holiday not celebrated here (perhaps because it is non-comercial) but something we should all do.

Hey Mrs. JP - I know you are a blessing to your family, and that you are thankful for all the blessings in your life! Glad you had a wonderful holiday - why even your doggies are thankful for you! The things we both are most thankful for are the love and mercy of our Lord. 'Nuff said!
