There's no place like home for the holdiays

Many years ago the Pilgrims gathered to thank God for helping them through their challenging times in the New World. We too have so much to be thankful for. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. Remember to thank God for all his blessings as we pause to give thanks and teach the next generation about the faithfulness of God over the years.

Come on in and hang up your coat.

Have a seat...

Help yourself to some turkey, stuffing and gravy.

After supper we can recline in the living room and save room for pumpkin pie, pumpkin roll & coffee.

Then we can sit by the fire and talk about our fond memories and ask for the Lord's blessing.

If you can't be with loved ones this year, maybe reach out to a neighbor or serve others at the local food bank, church or soup kitchen.


  1. Love the pics...especially the plaid pillows and curtains, et al!
    As for sentiments exactly...nice post!

  2. Hi Jennifer....boy did you give me a great idea with that picture of the plaid drapes...I love plaid to begin with (I actually wore a red tarten gown to daughters wedding) and now IKEA's new theme for the season is plaid and navy stars....I wanted to buy the plaid pillows to go on my new sofas but they wouldn't match my patchwork quilt now I think I have to go buy the fabric they sell and make new drapes...
    I Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving...we are skipping Jersey this year...I don't think my butt could stand sitting in the VW Bug for another 16 hours after just getting back home a few weeks ago...Sue
