Frozen ~ Thanksgiving ~ Lord Thanks ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Thursday Football

Good 23º everything is frozen out there morning!


Today, Lord, I am so truly thankful for so many things.

You have Blessed me in many ways. Thank you for this wonderful country I am privileged to live in.. and for all of it's military, police, and fire heroes. Thank you also for the regular "Joe Citizen" heroes who put themselves out there to help any way they can. Thank you Lord for my wonderful family and friends. They are my greatest Blessings. Thank you Lord for all the critters you have put on this earth, my very own, especially. They teach us so much ... unconditional love, loyalty, and understanding.
Lord thank you for blessing me with a super awesome Mother and Dad. They were the best! Thank you Lord for blessing me with such great children and grandchildren. All of my family is wonderful!
And thank you Lord for the super neat loving animals you have given me to love and be loved by... there was Scuffy Ann, Heidi, Lucy, Rufus, Dallas, Brutus, Tigger, Blazer, Harley, Maggie, Yukon, Dude, and Bruiser.
Lord, comfort those who are in pain, without friends or family, without food. Thank you for the time I had with loved ones that have gone to be with you. They shall always be in my heart, thoughts, and loved and greatly missed.
Lord, continue to Bless and watch over my family and friends. Keep them safe. And please watch over our country and military. Please impart some wisdom into the pea brains of the political machines running this country. Give them judging abilities to help save our country instead of using their position for fame, fortune, and stepping stones for their personal political future. I know, Lord, a little soapbox in my prayer! Can't help it. Thank you. Amen.

November 26th

Tucked between the two monster sized holidays of Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving receives far less attention. But Thanksgiving is a very important holiday, especially in the busy lives of Americans. It is a time to kick back and relax, watch a football game or go to a movie, and enjoy a huge feast. It's also time for us to give thanks to our God, for the things he has bestowed upon us and upon this great nation. There is no nation in the world that has more to be thankful for than us.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for the memories. One of the best concerts we ever went to was Lionel Ritchie. Tina Turner was the surprise opening act. Still gives me chills how a woman in high heels and wild hair could fill the arena with raw talent. Not a perfect analogy... but like a damn releasing water. Ritchie was more like a lake. Calm. Not nearly so unforgettable.

Time to get cooking.
