F.F.F. - 11.27.15

I hope all of my American friends had a wonderful time with family, friends and food this week. All of us, whether we live in the states or abroad, would be encouraged greatly if we took time every day, not just at Thanksgiving, to thank God for the many many blessings we each enjoy.

Which leads to my reason for posting today - Friday's Fave Five is a sweet opportunity to join with others each week mining for nuggets of blessing from the past week. I promise they are there - even during those weeks where it seems they are very scarce.

1. I'm thankful for this little family, and that Daniel was home to share Thanksgiving with us:

2. I know I'm blessed because this year, all our girls and our grands got together on Thanksgiving day. That doesn't always happen. 

3.  I'm thankful to have a four-day weekend!

4.  I'm thankful for an abundance of food.

5.  Quote of the week:

"Genuine grace is the free gift of salvation - and you can't add a price to something that's already free." Craig Hazen in Lee Strobel's "The Case for Grace."

I'm thankful for grace.

As the kids get older, time all together gets more precious as their families grow and schedules get busy. It's a huge blessing when they can all be at the same place at the same time. Enjoy your 4-day weekend! That quote is so true.

I love long weekends, but I volunteered to work today so I can save my time off for a trip back to my dad's house for Christmas. =)
