Our Family Thanksgiving

It was a very blessed Thanksgiving with our family home from TX, CA, and NY - joining those of us who live here in NE. It was all a gift from God - so, so wonderful to spend time together!! 

My heart is overflowing with thanks to God, and digital scrapbooking is one way to try to hold the memories close ...

Family truly is a gift from God. We have had our share of trials as a family, times of discord and problems, and I do not take the love and joy that we experience together for granted - it is without a doubt all a gift from God. And I am filled with thanks!

We also were able to have some great family pictures taken, and will be sharing those at a later date ... but for now, I am treasuring the memories of having our six sweet (grown) children here (four daughters and two sons), three of our four sons-in-law here (one was gone, visiting his own mother who is in the hospital in another state), and our ten precious grandchildren. 

Thank You, Lord, for the blessing of family -
each one, a gift from You.


  1. I will have to get some of your "Make Ahead" recipes. Everything looks yummy!
    Yes, family is one of God's most precious gifts and blessings for us.
    Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    1. Janis, yes - family is a most precious gift! And about the "Make Ahead" recipes - I put up a post on Dec. 4 with links to a few of the recipes ... hope they're helpful. I'm always looking for more recipes myself!
