Thanksgiving will be here soon.  What is and will your attitude be? Historical Thanksgiving - a celebration of God’s provision - a celebration of peace among men Today’s Thanksgiving - rejoicing in our abundance by consuming as much of it as possible at one sitting - one day for “saying” “thank you” for things we weren’t thankful for all year long. Biblical Thanksgiving - an attitude for each day, Hebrews 13:15, “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. - an attitude for all time, Psalm 79:13, “So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for even we will shew forth thy praise to all generations. My prayer is that I and my family will have a Biblical Thanksgiving, not just Thanksgiving Day, but each and every day. This was taken from Teachers’ Swap Shop - November/December 2011 .

This Really Works!

I saw this idea on Pinterest and since I had to boil a lot of sweet potatoes yesterday,  I decided to give it a try.  It really worked!  As you can see, the pot was filled with water and I had the burner on high and never once did it boil over.  I will definitely be using this tip again! And if you have not tried Pinterest , you really should.   And if you have not entered the giveaway for the Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent, you can do so HERE.

I Love Grandma a Whole Bunch

Teaching music to a couple of my grand children is fun, a privilege, and sometimes a challenge.  The other day, my grandson, Kade,  came to his lesson and brought me a whole bunch of notes.  They all said the same thing - "Thank You for being my teacher."   His mom said,  why don't you just give her one note and save another for later.  His reply - But I love Grandma a Whole Bunch!  How precious!  Grand children sure now how to win your heart! 

And Their Eyes Were Opened

Luke 24:31  And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. Thoughts: How long does it take for my eyes to be opened to the truths of God’s Word? How well do I know the Lord?  These disciples thought they knew the Lord, but it was a while before they realized who He was.  Does He walk and talk with me and while doing so am I totally blind to who He is and what He wants me to do? As soon as I close my Bible, does He vanish from me?  Has he vanished from my thoughts, my meditations, my obedience to Him?  I’m afraid and so ashamed to say that all too often this is true. Open my eyes, that I may see Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me; Place in my hands the wonderful key That shall unclasp and set me free. Open my ears, that I may hear Voices of truth Thou sendest clear; And while the wave notes fall on my ear, Everything false will disappear. Open my mouth, and let me bear, Gladly the warm truth everywhere; Open my heart and let me prepare Love w
