With fervor, the young lady scrubbed the dirty dinner pot. She was growing frustrated with the seemingly enormous stack of dishes that awaited her attention, for she wanted to finish a sewing project after kitchen duties were completed. Her siblings had vanished after the meal was over, leaving her alone to clean up. Sharon inwardly grumbled in self-pity, when her thoughts were shocked to silence when her mom walked in the kitchen with a sober face. Her announcement was startling.

Our Heavenly Father gives us many things to be grateful for. Just take a moment and make a mental list of those things you can thank God for.
Your list probably included some of the following: family, friends, a warm house, food, salvation, etc. These things are easy to be thankful for, but did your list include: siblings that are difficult to work with? A little brother or sister who has a tendency to get into your things? Disappointment? Loss? Being sick? Those who persecute you and revile you?

It’s that time of the year again when we give thanks to our gracious Lord and Savior for all that He has done in our lives! Need some scrumptious recipes? Need a craft idea? What about a new tradition to start each Thanksgiving? Maybe these are some help to you! :)

Kneeling down before my King,
My precious daughters to Him I bring.
How can I raise them to be virtuous and true?
Oh Lord, I'm weak; I need You.
I can strive to teach them to be morally good,
To say the right things, dress the right way,
act in a way every lady should.
But if I fail to teach them mercy, grace, and love,
To live my own life only for God above
Oh Lord, they need to be planted by the streams of living water,
That is what will make them a truly virtuous daughter.
So back on my knees before You I pray,
Lord, You need to work in their heart, You are the only way.

“Daughter of mine, a woman so kind,
how did you grow up to be so fine?”
A voice in answer so quiet and low,
“you trained me up in the way I should go.”
“Daughter of mine, so busy was I,
how did I teach you, when found I time?”
“Diligently you taught me all through the day,
as a young child in a Mother's special way.”
“Daughter of mine, If this be true,
what are some things that I taught you?”
“I learned to esteem others better than me.
not to love only in words; but also in deed.
Philippians 2:3, 1 John 3:18
I learned by example to love sisters and brothers,
as I saw you look on the things of others.
To always walk in truth you taught,
God's commands taught from the heart.”
Philippians 2:4, 3 John 1:4
“Mother of mine, You are so kind,
You are the one who is so fine.
I'd hear you pray, and learn how true,
the realness of God is in you.”
“Many a time I’ve failed and stumbled,
Daughter of mine in tears I’m humbled.”
"But as he which hath called you is holy,
so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;"
1 Peter 1:15

While I am grateful for this opportunity to praise the Lord for saving me, I am pondering how to fit a collection of thoughts, feelings, and lessons into one tiny article! The more I grow in Him, the more obvious His mercy becomes to me, and I am eternally thankful for His love and mercy. Every day the Lord grows and teaches me. Salvation is only the beginning of our journey with Him!

My Dear Sisters in Christ,
When I saw the topic for this month, I knew that I had to write. There is no end to our God’s faithfulness and as His children, we have the honor, privilege, and responsibility to share His faithfulness with each other and with the lost! “God is faithful, by Whom ye were called unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:9 I could share with you many stories of how God has shown Himself faithful to me. Our family just got back from a wonderful vacation in Florida and every day there were testimonies and blessings after blessings both “big” and “small.” “But the Lord is faithful, Who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.” 2 Thessalonians 3:3

Lately the Lord has been teaching me to recognize and acknowledge His goodness in my life. And He is so good! It can be easy to overlook the “little” things our loving Father does for us every day.
