HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! GOBBLE! GOBBLE! GRACE IS MINE!11/23/07 UPDATE!

I have to give thanks today!! 

For the Lord truly has looked my way.

My life so drawn from strife so long

That I was blessed today,  by someone

other  -far away!

Gobble,  Gobble,  Grace is Mine!

I would not have thought this would happen

to me,  not any time.

I have to say Happy ThanksGiving!  ThanksGiving is mine!

I want to share a miracle with you.  The Lord has given me  a basket for the holidays.  I thought I would not be able to feed my little family the traditional meal. 

  The past few months have been difficult.  I have had to go to the food pantry and eat whatever they offered.  They gave alot of brown rice and dried beans. 

 Beans are an excellent source of  protein.  But they take so long to cook!  Sometimes we did not have even butter or oil to add to the food. 

 But we survived and we are here today to offer THANKS GIVING TO THE LORD!!!!   

 I want to encourage all of  my fellow bloggers to be of good cheer–no matter what your circumstances that there is one above us all. 

 My good fortune I truly believe is based on the prayers of others for my family,  the good deeds of others toward my family,  and  my learning to be silent sometimes,  and other times to be humble.

  It is not always easy to be humble in the face of a difficult job,  or  frustrating situations in your job or personal life.  But I must inspire you today to not give up. 

There is a purpose to all of our lives.  Many times we lose loved ones along the road of life.  Other times we fall out of companionships and feel as though we are alone  in the world. 

 I have found that my faith in a higher power has seemed to brought people to my life that serve a positve purpose in my life. 

Thank the Lord!   Without the Lord I could not/ would not make it!  He keeps me and my family!

  Have a Great Thanks Giving with your friends, and loved ones!

 ((( So basically it as be as so helpful 2 give m3 da food i needed 2 haEve this thanksgiving dinner. Thank the Lord!!! )))That previous stuff is texting by my son! ***

 He  so happy to have a big 16 pound turkey to eat.  I am defrosting right now. 

I love to cook.  I love  to bake bread,  sweet potatoes, and all of the trimings.  It takes me a long time ….but  I love it.

  It sure beats the fo0d pantry!!!!!  Thanks be to God!  I have canned vegetables, and even stove top stuffing!!!!! I am baking RED VELET Duncan Heines Cup Cakes with white frosting!

  I will bake some brownies in the next few days too!  But the most tasty treat after that dinner is the Concord Apple Crisp!  As soon as you finish it,  it melts in your mouth!  It tastes great with icecream within the first half and an hour! 

 Pick it up in any regular  grocery store.  Get some Macintosh Apples and cut up about 7 or 8 and then lay in a 8′ by 10′  pan and cook until the concord crumbs seep into the apples. 

It is just like the apple without the entire pie crust!  Yes,  truly a blessed ThanksGiving Day indeed!!!!

 I am so happy that my church thought of  my little family.—-I will continue to pray for my church and the kind people there.  God bless everyone who contributed!!!

“BLESS THE LORD!!!  OH, MY SOUL!!!  AND ALL THAT IS WITHIN ME BLESS HIS HOLY NAME!!!!”

JUST TO ADD A LITTLE BIT MORE===I COOKED MY TURKEY LATE BECAUSE I AM ALWAYS TIRED….SO AS MY FAMILY TRADITION GOES—NOT BY CHOICE—MORE BY MY HUMAN WEAKNESS—IT IS JUST NOW STILL QUITE HOT—AND MY SON AND I ARE GOING TO RUN OUT TO SEE WHAT THIS BLACK FRIDAY THING IS ALL ABOUT.  I DO NOT HAVE MUCH MONEY–BUT MY SON GOT AND A IN AMERICAN HISTORY, AND MAINTAINS A PRETTY STRONG B AVERAGE IN ALL OF HIS SUBJECTS….SO I TRY TO STRETCH A DOLLAR OR TWO IN HIS DIRECTION.  THANK THE LORD FOR HIS GRACE TOWARD MY SON.—I WILL CHECK IN LATER WITH AN UPDATE OF MY EXPERIENCE AT BLACK FRIDAY—I AM GOING TO OLD NAVY AND GAMESTOP!!!!  TALK TO YOU SOON!
