As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Come Before His Presence With Thanksgiving

Picture via The Graphics Fairy

O come, let us sing to the Lord: 
let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation. 

Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, 
and make a joyful noise unto Him with psalms.

I will be stepping away from my little bloggy space for a few days.  We will be taking time to rejoice in His goodness, thank Him for His blessings, enjoy long-awaited family togetherness, feast, sip coffee, have lingering conversations over leftover turkey, celebrate a little boy's birthday.  

I pray that your weekend is also filled with memory-making moments.  Even if life has been hard, if we belong to Him, then His blessings are too many to count.  

Thanksgiving blessings to you, my friends!

  3. It's been too long since I've been to visit. And I see you are in the midst of Thanksgiving preparations.

    May I wish you a beautiful and most memorable celebration. I like your list of possibilities for memory making moments.

    "lingering conversations over leftover turkey".... perfect for snatches of conversation along with succulent morsels just begging to be picked up and nibbled on.

  4. Oh you will enjoy every moment and savor it. Can't wait for your return so we get the pictures of the Maine folks. =)

  5. Cheryl,
