Give Thanks Through It All


I started the week out mailing off my unemployment form, so that this week can be my waiting week.  There is the potential of more days off in December.

Those of you who know me, will know that though my days are without pay, I’m still enjoying them in the fullest, trusting God to take care of things.  :o)

Today, I had a spare button and a scrap piece of dark blue yarn and decided to make a ring.  After all, a girl needs some bling-bling.

The cool thing is, it will fit on most of my fingers, just depends on my mood.  :o)

I will start cooking tomorrow (with the first item below) at some point in the day.  We have two days of Thanksgiving meals this week, Wednesday and Thursday.
Here’s a list of what will be cooked at my house this year.
  • A citrus cake with strawberry jello poured over it, then let to set and finished off with cream whip (something I’m trying out – I think it will be good and will stay home)
  • Broccoli/Rice Casserole (for Parham side)
  • Turkey (for Parham side)
  • Banana Nut Bread (for Benton side)
  • Crock Pot Dressing (for Benton side)

I can already imagine the yummy smells coming from the kitchen.  :o)
In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
 ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:18
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
