Anybody home?

Lately I've been thinking no one is reading this and if it wasn't for that counter on my profile page going up every now and then I might have stopped a while ago. Thanks Mrs. Raub for leaving that comment.
Anyone please feel free to leave a note. I'd appreciate it.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all who's reading this!

I've thought about it, and I have so much to be thankful for! I couldn't even begin to write about all of the blessings the Lord has given me.

Every Thanksgiving, my family has a tradition where, before we start into the turkey, we go around the table and say at least one thing we're thankful for. Everyone said three things this year about what they were thankful for. And one of the things a friend said was he was thankful that even when we're not thankful, God still loves us. And that's so true, for all the blessings God has given us, we should be praising Him 24/7. We take so many things for granted such as, our family, our house, and other things, but the Lord still loves us, and that love is probably another thing we take for granted.

But I want to say thank you to everyone who reads this blog, and I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Isn't it strange?

Isn't it strange how we can become emotionally attached to something that cannot love us back? That thought has been running through my mind the past few days. We recently had to put one of our cats to sleep, due to either cancer or kidney failure, and my mom really misses that cat. It wasn't an outstanding cat in any way, I mean, it was a yellow-striped cat, whom we called Tiger, and it was scrawny and lazy. But somehow, she got attached to him and it was hard for her to make that drive to the vets. But we now have another cat coming around here that dad is allowing to eat on our porch and mom is feeling better.

But how many times have each and every one of us grown attached to an animal, an object, like a car or a family heirloom. Those things will come and go, but be reminded of the words in Matthew 6:19-21; Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break in and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Hey there,

Believe it or not, I am still here. I will write more soon, if I can. This month has been taken up with getting ready for our church's God and Country Rally and revival meetings with Bro. Mark Kerlin and his family. Then, my mom and I are in charge of the Christmas program, so that is taking up a lot of time. But, I WILL get back sometime. And, Mrs. Raub, if you read this, congrats on becoming a grandma!
