Thankful Thursday

i sat at my computer last night and struggled
to come up with anything to post today
it just wasn't happening
i woke up this morning
i have so much to be thankful for
family, friends, my pets, and my health

i love this picture of lily bug
i've always thought it looks like she is praying
this is cowboys grandmother, Elma

this is grandma's bible

you can see is is very worn with love

there is no date in this bible
grandma has a date of 1949 written in it
and a note on the next page that
this bible is about 50 years old
making it at least 100 years old today

as i glance through the pages i discovered there
are some verses circled
these are listed above on the
front page

there are some beautiful pages

grandma always tucked things away
these dried flowers are still in the bible
she loved her flowers and had a
beautiful yard

As I post today, I am thinking of others
and their difficulties they are going through
I am asking you to pray for these families
as they are facing many heartbreaking issues
in their lives right now

you can go to their web sights

Praying for April Rose
Kayleighs Story
Praying for Stellan

ISAIAH 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help
thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the
right hand of my righteousness.

That is so cool that you still have Grandma's Bible with all her treasures still tucked away inside of it!

Wow, great post! We do all have so much to be thankful for, even if at times it seems like we don't. That is really neat to have your Grandma's bible with all those neat things in it. I love the pics!

That bible is really grand...I'm going to have to take a closer look at it, it's been years. How amazing it's in the family. A true treasure!

Sorry Auntie, I forgot to come back and tell you how beautiful your post was today. I love the old bible, family things like that mean the world to me too. Lily Bug is still a pretty kitty!
