He has some great Thanksgiving thoughts and perspective to share with us today. "That time of year is here again. We have said goodbye to another summer and are now in the dwindling days of fall. If you live in Northern Michigan, I think we skipped over the last half of fall, and we are now knee deep in winter! Fall is one of my favorite times of year. The leaves changes, the sun takes on a different glow, there is a crispness in the air, and my thoughts turn to Thanksgiving – and pie! . . ."Read More

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Are you naturally producing joy and thankfulness? Philippians 4:8, in the Bible, states:
Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, Think About These Things!Read More
I love the season of autumn or fall. I love the colors, crisp air and warm, sunny afternoons. It is now November, just a few short days before Thanksgiving in the United States. Although it looks a lot like Christmas outside with all the fluffy white stuff, inside our home it still looks like fall.
I love November and the many things that come with this month of thankfulness. I am personally thankful my husband (or myself!) does not follow "No Shave November" each year. I'm not a fan of his super furry face; however, I am a fan of Facebook in November. I love the number of posts each day that are filled with positive words of thankfulness. So today, on this 11th month, I would like to share 11 things I am thankful for in no particular order. I hope it will cause you to think about those things for which you are truly thankful and why.
#1 Purpose. Living with purpose beyond this temporary moment is an amazing way to walk through life.
#2 Jesus. He is the reason I have purpose in this life and hope for the next.
#3 Childhood. The years that shaped me, the people that influenced me, the experiences that impacted me - all part of making me who I am today.
#4 Parents. I am blessed by the influence and continued encouragement I receive from all my parents.
#5 In-Laws. All of them (and there are many!). They love me as if I'm their own. My parent-in-laws raised an incredible son who I am blessed to call my husband.
#6 Bethany Joy. My daughter who brings joy and excitement to our family. She teaches me to pause and truly listen.
#7 AJ. His loyalty and determination challenge me regularly. And he holds his own amongst all his female siblings.
#8 Tatiana. The beautiful addition to our family who is teaching me to communicate more clearly than I ever have. Valuable lesson for me.
#9 Celina. My youngest child who is filled with grace and love. She teaches me to let go of my ever-so-serious side and see the world through the eyes of wonder and awe.
#10 Joe. I feel so incredibly blessed to be married to a man who loves me and encourages me to pursue my passions. I love dreaming and working toward those dreams with this awesome man.
#11 USANA. This home-based business has provided financial stability for our family. It allows me the freedom to travel, give time to our ministries and be a stay-at-home mom.
What are you thankful for? Will you please share in the comments below so I may enjoy and learn from your thankfulness too? November or not -- it is always a good time to be thankful.
