HAPPY THANKSGIVING, to all my blogger friends who live in the USA.
This is the day we take time out to give thanks for five of our faves from the past week. I like this writing exercise because although we have one day set aside in our country to offer up thanks to God for giving us this great country, for what the Pilgrims did in settling here, etc., but the Bible says to give thanks daily. In fact, it is how we should open up our prayer time. Giving thanks to God for all the blessings and circumstances He brings into our lives. Please join in by linking up at Susanne's.
Because I am on vacation with my family at my in-laws house in Plymouth County, MA, I am just going to list my five fave Scriptures that are based on thanksgiving along with some photos from around our home in eastern NYS.
