The gorgeous colors of fall.
A bountiful harvest of corn this year!
And carrots, too.
I'm thankful for children who see beauty in the simple things...
...and who love their momma. :)
For my amazing husband who spoils me rotten.
Who showers me with gifts including this excellent birthday wine.
For the blessing of celebrating my birthday this past weekend with my church family. For the blessing of my adult children with whom I have the best of relationships. For my friends, near and far, who know me and love me anyway. :)
For our family's Reformation Day tradition of watching this:
Since your majesty and your lordships desire a simple reply, I will answer without horns or teeth. Unless I am convinced by Scripture and by plain reason (I do not believe in the authority of either popes or councils by themselves, for it is plain that they have often erred and contradicted each other) in those Scriptures that I have presented, for my conscience is captive to the Word of God, I cannot and I will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me. Amen.However many blessings we expect from God, His infinite liberality will always exceed all our wishes and our thoughts. ~John Calvin
~Martin Luther (reply to the Diet of Worms)
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. ~I Thessalonians 5:16-18
For what are you thankful today?
