a mouth full of praise

"I will bless the LORD at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth"
(Psalm 34:1)

I am thankful that my oldest granddaughter, Mikaela, turned 8 years old Tuesday and is happy, healthy and full of love for Jesus! When she spends the night with me, we read out of my 'Jesus Calling' devotional and when she found out they had one for children she said she wanted one.  I got her one as part of her birthday present and she was so excited when she opened it.  It really does something to my heart to see her already desiring to spend time in God's Word.

I am thankful that Melissa made it home safely from Baton Rouge on Monday. Megan's husband was at the deer camp, so Melissa and I spent the night with her and and my 4 grandbabies. We stayed up late and watched a movie and just had a fun girls night. It was nice to wake up to some little sweet faces. I am thankful for family.

I am thankful that Ashlie's husband, Cody, has a job that is providing for their family. Even though they are in Wyoming and I miss my daughter and two little grandsons so bad, I know that for now it is what God has ordained for their lives. He is so good.

I am thankful for a Savior that loves me unconditionally. God overwhelms me everyday with His goodness and His mercy. He never ceases to amaze me with His tender care and his generous grace.


I pray that everyone of you have a wonderful and joy filled Thanksgiving. I pray God's richest blessings upon you and your family and pray that He grants you peace and safe travel. May we remember to be thankful to our awesome God for all things. He truly is worthy to be praised!
If you have a minute, stop by Titus 2 In Action and read my post there today entitled "Are you a seeker?"

first time commenting on your blog; found it through the Old Geezer's; I love the "Jesus Calling" devotional. It was absolutely amazing to me the year I did it (2008 and I should do it again) how it was like Jesus knew right what I needed on that particular day.

He truly is Amazing!!

Wonderful list of thankfuls you have! I hope you and your family have a very wonderful happy Thanksgiving!
