Happy Thanksgiving!


Hello, Dear Ones!
I want to wish you all a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving!
We all have so much to be thankful for and I thank God for all of my blessings.
I don't know if you all know what you mean to me but you're my blessings too.

This is the first time in over 17 years we've not had my little Mother with us for Thanksgiving. 
Don't feel sorry or sad for me. She is rejoicing and feasting with Jesus today!
I just didn't want to cook up a big meal for just Mr. Precious and me so we're going to a beautiful old historic hotel for a lovely brunch. I'm looking forward to it and will try and finish my Christmasing in the house.

 Well, I am going to make some cornbread dressing and a pumpkin pie! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Give Thanks

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"
Give thanks

We give thanks to You oh Lord
We give thanks

  3. Shelia, I have had this song on my mind lately too! Hope that you enjoy your Thanksgiving meal. I am right there with you, this is my first Thanksgiving without Daddy. I am thankful for the time that I had with him and for the opportunity to have been his daughter. Big hugs to you sweet Shelia!

  6. Brunch at a lovely historic hotel sounds wonderful. I am going out with friends to a restaurant. Since I am just me it's silly to cook a big meal for just me. But I do love my dressing ..... I could make a meal of just that LOL.
    Enjoy your day with Mr. Precious - Happy Thanksgiving dear sweet Shelia..
    I have already decorated three trees and working on finishing the rest of the decoration by Sunday.

  7. Happy Thanksgiving!

    It always feels a little differently around the first holidays, but you have the wonderful memories to help you through. And to do something a little different, like a brunch, sounds like a lovely idea.

  11. Thinking of you this Thanksgiving and praying that you will have a happy one with Mr. Precious. I have no guests or family with me this year, it is a first, but I have such peace with the Lord and am having a wonderful day with my Bruno (Chihuahua)
    Made myself a wonderful dinner and now I'm settling in to watch a good movie. Sending you hugs, I know you miss your Mom, but as you said she IS rejoicing with the Lord!

  14. Mmmm, I LOVE cornbread dressing. My mother was from Oklahoma and she made the most wonderful cornbread dressing when I was growing up and when I lived near my folks and could join them for Thanksgiving. I make it and though my hubby is Canadian he loves it and doesn't really care for any other kind.
    Happy Thanksgiving, my friend, I am thankful for you, too!

  15. Hi Shelia,
    I was wondering how this day was going for you without you Mother. You are such a Godly example to each of us and thank you for that great faith you show us.
    I was so happy to see the Give Thanks song on your post. Just this morning during my Bible time I started humming that song and wished I had the words to it...so thank you for sharing that.
