Day 30 of The Giving of Thanks
Well, this is the last post of The Giving of Thanks — not that we won’t be giving thanks.
As I type this for posting, it’s a rainy Sunday. I often like rainy days. Especially cool rainy days. They are lovely for snuggling inside with warm, soft, and cuddly blankets, good books, good movies, yummy food, and faithful love.
As we move into December, let us continue to give thanks and let us prepare to celebrate the MOST FAITHFUL LOVE ever born – JESUS the CHRIST.
Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV) 6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. source
Day 27 of The Giving of Thanks
I am giving thanks today and yesterday for every tidbit of holy justice that arises in this world, but especially here in America. And it is my prayer that holy justice will arise and become the norm. And it will; albeit, until it does I will give thanks for the small as we wait for YESHUA to come and reign.
Zechariah 14 (NKJV) 1 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, . . .
3 Then the Lord will go forth And fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle.
4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.
8 And in that day it shall be That living waters shall flow from Jerusalem, Half of them toward the eastern sea And half of them toward the western sea; In both summer and winter it shall occur.
9 And the Lord shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be— “The Lord is one,” And His name one. source
Day 24 of The Giving of Thanks
Not the kind you get into for this or that but the free-flowing kind that washes away the grime of the day and soothes tired achy muscles – a hot shower. I have said one of the greatest blessings of living here in America is a hot shower. I am grateful for every hot shower I get to enjoy. Epson Salt baths too.
And I am grateful for the Water of The Word. It washes the grime and soothes like nothing else. The Water of The Word is plentiful here in America. May it continue to be.
A few pics – no hot shower spigots available but I think you will enjoy these.
Day 22 of The Giving of Thanks.
Walks and Rocks
Really. I’m not kidding. I am giving thanks for walks with JT and things we find along the way.
On today’s walk, we found a lovely surprise. A rock.
Yes. A rock.
One painted and placed by some caring soul to cheer the finder thereof. The Finder was me! And that pretty Rock named Joy now as a new home. The request written on the back was to keep or hide. I’m keeping it. At east for a while. 🙂
Matthew 16:18 (NKJV) 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. source
Somehow finding a rock named Joy seems just right for me. Joy. Rock.
Day 21 of The Giving of Thanks
Fresh Berry Cobbler.
And I say that even before I taste it. I am trusting it will be tasty. Other cobblers have been all these years. That simple little few ingredient recipe. The same one that Little Girl would stand in the kitchen and wait for it to cool just enough to eat it, many years ago. I think she still would – it’s vegan. 🙂
Happy Saturday, my Friends.
Genesis 1:11 (NLT) 11 Then God said, “Let the land sprout with vegetation—every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.” And that is what happened. source
John 15:5 (NKJV) 5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. source
Galatians 5:22-26 (NKJV) 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. source
Revelation 22:2 (TLV) 2 down the middle of the city’s street. On either side of the river was a tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. source
