Today I'm Thankful for…….

For the last couple of years, during the month of November,  some friends and I have been listing what we are thankful for on a day by day basis on our Facebook pages.  

 This was my post for November 12th, 2013 ~

"Today I am Thankful for our home. Doug and I are so blessed in our home. It is a home made of wood, brick, mortar and love. We built our home in 1979. Our friend Joey Byrd was our contractor. 

We'd chosen a house plan, made some ( 30 or so) changes to the original plan and broke ground in the early Spring of 1979. We moved in on December 9th 1979. 

I was expecting our first child in January 1980 and we were hoping to be in and settled before she arrived. We were.
God has blessed our home, kept us safe, warm and happy, allowed our family to grow for these past 35 years and we look forward to many more.
Thank you Father for our home and our family!"

God has blessed Doug and me with three beautiful daughters.  Sharon, our 
oldest is married to Ricky, with a blended family of 5 children.  Bethany, our middle daughter is married to Jeff and they have a daughter, 7 months old.  Kacie, our youngest, is in a relationship with Chris.  
All our girls have chosen wisely in their relationships.  All three are fine, Godly men and love our girls.  It shows.

Is our life charmed with no "bad times", oh no.  But, we have God on our side, and as the scriptures tell us 

"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"  Romans 8:31  KJV

Thank you Father God for the good times and the bad, for they make us strong!  

Blessings~ Kat
