As a child my world grew leaps and bounds as I immersed myself into books. I hid myself in pages of orphaned girls, mysteries of years ago, animals and animation of all kinds. As a child I would write puppet shows and perform them for younger friends. As a young aunt I would make up stories for my nieces and nephews. As a first year teacher I wrote my first children's book. My see my words published and beautifully illustrated one day, Lord willing. For now, I will self-publish the stories that I write for my own precious four children as I do what I can to help their imaginations soar through a world of wonderful words.

Today I Am Thankful For......

We took the kids on an outing the other day.  "THIS is the best day of my life!"  My response - "Can you remember this on the days when you DON'T like your day?" often do I remember the good gifts of my Father on the  days I have been in a 'blah' mood.  Something that I can get into easily if I let myself.  So I decided to sit down and think about what I have to be thankful for.  The following is what flowed out of my fingers.  

Today I Am Thankful For......

Sunshine, cool mountain breezes and blue skies
southern hash-browns, turkey bacon and toast
four active kids dreaming of apple pies
my husband whom I love the most.

Fields of green grass
covered with tiny yellow flowers
not littered with tons of trash
lingering evidence of nourishing showers.

Of all of these
none compares
to The Creator of trees
and His Son whom He shares.

For His mercy and grace
for His wisdom from above
to Him I raise my hands in this place
and thank Him for eternal love.

I am content where I am
for this is where He desires
His little lamb
He guards from fires.

For what will you be thankful for today?
Food, shelter, clothing?
Family, friends, sunshine in May?
Hands of loved ones holding?

Today I am thankful for
to whom belongs all praise honor and glory for all things
