Joyous Day!


“Frost on the pane;

Colors have changed.

Winter soon here;

Deer drawing near.

Leaves blow their way;

Joyous Thanksgiving Day!”


“Let us come before His presence with Thanksgiving;

Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.”

Psalm 95:2 NKJV


Our first cold morning. Blowing winds reminding the seasons are in change.

Blessings to you and your family this Thanksgiving Day!

Thankful Goodness

“My heart is filled with wonder, a good and pleasant theme.

Thanksgiving to my Savior, Who never, no, not once, forgot or abandoned me.

Thankful for His goodness, drawing me each day.

His beauty seen in nature; for He is the only way.

Sunrises on the morning,

Light in rainy days,

Protection when darkness hovers,

Correction when I’ve lost my way.

I’m thankful for Your Presence,

Immanuel with me.

For in Your Peace and Kindness,

My heart sings out to Thee!”


I will worship You, Yahweh, with extended hands as my heart erupts with praise!

I will tell everyone everywhere about Your wonderful works!

I will be glad and shout in triumph.

I will sing praise to Your exalted name, O Most High.”

Psalm 9:1&2 The Passion Translation


My family and I are celebrating Thanksgiving today as it is my son’s day off from work.

Blessings to you and your family as we embrace this week of Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Joy!

…and through the wild storms of life…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Remembering His mercies are new every morning and “He remembers His covenant forever.” Psalm 105:8 NKJV

Raising a banner of thankfulness for our Country and God’s faithfulness to our Forefathers and His promise to our children.

As for my family, today we celebrate and reclaim what was lost through a wild August rain storm. My desktop computer, although not on was plugged into the electrical outlet. The forecast proclaimed sunshine for the day, but none the less, the thunder and lighting came. Striking the house and taking my desktop computer as prey.

The photograph captured is of my son walking our land in liberty and freedom to proclaim God’s Faithfulness to remember His promises and covenant forever!

Restoration and Thanksgiving today, and through the wild storms of life, to know He will not forsake or forget His promises today or forever!

May you and your families be blessed in His rest today and always.

Thankful for a place to share my heart,

Denise and family

Small Beginnings

“For who has despised the day of small things?” Zachariah 4:10 NKJV

One day I “looked” and realized the view I once took for granted was overgrown and gone.

image

Perfect weekend to be Thankful and reclaim what was lost.

Tomorrow my husband, son and I continue down the fence.

It may be a “small thing”, but the view to the future and possibilities are unlimited.

May you also be inspired to begin the small things and your view of unlimited possibilities open before your heart and eyes.

Most blessed weekend,
Denise

Rejecting or Rejoicing?

“He was despised and rejected by men…” Isaiah 53:3 (ESV)


Lord, on this day of Thanksgiving,

Are You speaking to me?

Have I “rejected” or “refused

for fear or shame?

Is my heart set on “man?”

Am I “despising” Your beauty?

Forgive me Lord. 


 

I study a lot from the Concordance.

When I am questioning;

Inquiring of knowledge;

Thinking;

Searching deep;

A “word” will surface

In my spirit.

Turning to the Concordance,

Going to the

First mention (of the word in Scripture)

Often times,

Seeing if Jesus,

Himself,

Used the “word”.

(Although I know

All Scripture is God breathed)


 

This morning

 between a

Thankful heart, and

Questioning if

I too was

“rejecting” the

Plans He has for my “heart?”

I went looking for the word

“Rejected.”


 

Oh yes, there are

Multiple lines of

“rejected,”

(approximately 30 times)

But at the end,

Right after the

After the last,

“rejected”,

Starting fresh is

The Word,

REJOICE!

 

(Abundant lines of 190 plus!

Not counting rejoices; rejoiceth; and rejoicing)


 

 Lv. 23:40  “…shall rejoice before the LORD your God…”

Dt. 12:7  “…shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand…”

Dt. 12:12 “…shall rejoice before the LORD your God…”

 

He spoke softy,

“Because My Son was

“despised and rejected”

You are

 Forgiven and

Loved.”

And you

…shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand…”

 


 

My Shepherd's protection on my path in life!
My Shepherd’s protection on my path in life!

On this day of Thanksgiving,

I thank You LORD for

Your tender mercy

Of lovingkindness,

Forgiveness, and

Grace.

 

Gently speaking and

Guiding with Your

Wisdom and Word.

Let me not

“reject”

All the good plans

You have for my life,

or the work of

Your Son’s hands.

Let me

“Rejoice!”

Before You always

For You are my God

And I trust in Your

Protection on my

Path in life,

As I follow

Your Son,

Jesus Christ


“But let all those rejoice

Who put their trust in You;

Let them ever shout for joy,

Because You defend them;

Let those also who

love Your

Name

Be joyful in You.”

Psalm 5:11 (NKJV)

"This is the day that the LORD has made; let us Rejoice and be glad in it! Psalm 118:24
“This is the day that the LORD has made; let us Rejoice and be glad in it! Psalm 118:24
