I thought since it seems are lives are so difficult and sometimes on the negative side. Maybe we might just start acknowledging blessings each day. Maybe this will help us keep ourselves from falling into all the negative. Like today I am blessed because I noticed my patience is getting better. I hope you all can see at least one blessing a day. Even though we have many we sometimes don't think about or see. May God Bless.

I am so thankful that Mom has recovered from being severely ill.
I am so thankful for our bountiful harvest especially of tomatoes.
I am so thankful for you all that no matter when or where or what time, I can find you here.

PB- Thank you, how are you. School is going well, I go back exactly a month from now. I received a scholarship for the rest of my education which I am so thankful for.
We have been harvesting for about a month now, mostly tomatoes and peppers. We have some watermelons on the vines, I am looking forward to those for sure. I have been making lots of tomato sauces, my favorite is the pizza sauce.
Much love PB!

Hallah that is so wonderful!

Mom has been sick for a couple of days. I am thankful that she is beginning to feel better.
I have gotten AB on an exercise regimen and it seems to be doing him good.

I am so thankful for the nice cool day yesterday after some fierce temperatures.

Our garden and animals are doing well.

I am thankful for Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, who loved us sinners so much to lay down his life in our place. What a King! What a Lord! What a Saviour! What Love!

God blessed us richly today in that my wife and I were able to get out to a local park for a picnic and a little bit of fishing.

Each year I create a custom Christmas ornament celebrating/honoring a special person in my life. This year it was my mother - 89 and struggling with dementia. I wanted to share my thoughts here where I know they'll be appreciated:

"2020 has been a challenging year to say the least, yet in every circumstance we can find strength and purpose. Mine is found daily as I journey alongside my mother and through her gift of Grace. Unconditional, forgiving, compassionate, redeeming. Grace is accepting the things you cannot change and learning
to live in, embrace and cherish the moment. Grace is doing what is right, not what is easy.  A gift that cannot be given until it has truly been received. Through her courage, love, acceptance, gratitude, patience and limitless chances for ‘do-overs’, my mother has transformed the hearts of all who are blessed to know her…through her gift of Grace.
 As we begin yet another year, my prayer is that we all truly learn to give (and receive) Grace."

Blessed Be the caregivers and this forum.
Peace & Love,
MamaChar

I am sooo thankful for a warm place in this snow.

I hope you all are staying warm.
May God bless each of you with what you need.


Everyday, God is Good, and God is Good everyday.

A boy was standing in the middle of the street waiting for the bus. An older man approached him and said, "Son, if you want to catch the bus, you have to walk down to that bus stop over there." The boy said, "No Sir, the bus will stop for me right here." The man tried and tried to convinced the boy he had to go to the bus stop to be picked up. The boy said to the man, " I have faith that the bus will pick me up here."
Shortly after the bus came by and sure enough stopped and as the boy got on the bus he turned to the man and said, "Sir, I had faith because the bus driver is my Daddy."


If we are God's children, let our faith remain strong and true, knowing our Father works everything for our good. Trust HIM, believe HIM, and receive HIM.

Much love everyone!

Thank you Lord for the beautiful Sunshine you gave us this day, and that we are all healthy and safe.

From Psalm 8 which humbles me every time I read it. The incredible glory of the heavens, the never-ending expanse of it all that our minds can't even comprehend, the countless galaxies blazing with light and stars and energy... and yet the Lord has put us above all of it and above all living things as well:

"When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
 what is man that you are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that you care for him?"

"O Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!"

I thank God every night that I have a roof over my head and that I get to sleep in my own bed because I know there are so many people who don't and I pray for those people as well.


I love your avatar!!

I am so thankful for a warm fire and a warm place to sleep in this cooooold weather.
Let us pray for all those who do not have those luxuries.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. 🦃🥧🥂

All I can say is that even though this has been a roller coaster year with my emotions and with the whole Covid-19 that I am thankful that I am above ground to enjoy my sweetheart and having him to share a big dinner with, but I am more thankful that Jesus has been with me through everything I have gone through this year. He wiped my tears when no one else did, He comfort me when I felt lonely. He listen to me in the middle of the night. He kept me & my sig-other safe. He has been healing my body, mind, and soul. He has kept a roof over our heads & food in our bellies. He has even remind me that He will bring me through this. How He loves me so and I just love Him with all my heart and soul. Praise the Lord, our King!🙌

Be safe everyone!❤

Always so great to read all these blessings. I got a little Turner Classic Movies channel time in with a cup of herbal tea while my dad napped, then a nice dinner with him. Thanks, Lord!

I am happy to see all of your blessings, that is my blessing this day! 

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of the spirit, washed in his blood.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with his goodness, lost in his love.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

Our sweet little wild bunny came back to visit us. She was sitting in front of the back sun porch listening to classical music. I play classical music on the radio during the day up until dusk.

The new Phizer vaccine apparently is 90% effective. Amazing. Just announced. A particular type of vaccine. Dr David Kessler is named as co chair on the new Corona taskforce. Does anyone remember this remarkable man? If no, do search engine him. The virus is currently 125,000 a day for the last two days in new cases and over 1,000 deaths a day. I am so hoping this vaccine is a good one. Much more to be done, and there will be difficult delivery system I hear, as it must be kept cold, colder than refrigeration last I heard. But reason to thank goodness, this news. Feeling hopeful.

Sat outside with mom and family this afternoon. Enjoyed the bright sunshine.
Took a walk along the rail trail. My mother loved being outside and so did I.
Took a ride in the country stopped at a nice restaurant and had takeout
Mom for the first time in two years picked up her spoon and started feeding herself chocolate pudding. We were all so thrilled and happy my mother is doing so well.
Wonderful stress free day. I feel renewed and refreshed.

Alva,

Speaking of Election Day. I am thankful for generators. Much of our city is still out of power due to Hurricane Zeta so generators had to be placed in polling booths.

Hubby and I elected to vote by mail a few weeks ago so we are finished with voting.

I can’t imagine how long it will take today at the polls! They say they will be sanitizing between each voter. Surely there will be very long lines.

I sincerely hope that people will show up to vote. We should never throw away our right or privilege to vote.

It wasn’t all that long ago that women weren’t even allowed to vote. We should vote for ourselves and also to honor our ancestors that weren’t allowed to.

Counting as a positive that the election is done with today. Perhaps no solid answer to who wins, dependent on how close, but it will be over and we can get back to real life being lived. It's in the hands of the American People. They will decide it and I trust them to do that. I was just listening to talk radio and the host said that one study shows that 55% of Americans say that this is the most stressful day of their lives. I know I am 78 but I can only think they must be young and haven't lived long enough to see a whole lot of stress and pain.
