A Thanksgiving Day Recap full of Thanksgiving ;)

“This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.”
Lamentations 3:21-26

The above verses have been on my  mind quite a bit this week! His compassion never fails,  His mercies are new every morning, and He is good to those who seek HIM. We have such HOPE, don’t we?! And then I was reminded of Psalm 107:21, “Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” Beautiful, isn’t it?  “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so” {Ps 107:2}. He has brought us “out of darkness and the shadow of death”, “He hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.” Let us “sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.” :) And on top of our Salvation, He “daily loadeth us with benefits“{Ps 68:19}!! We have so much to give thanks for! (: I am so thankful! For the great gift of Salvation, for the daily blessings and benefits He showers upon me, for the parents He has given me, sister and brothers that surround me,  and for all you all who encourage me with comments.emails.kindness! :) :)

Alrighty! Time for a Thanksgiving photo roundup for y’all! :) When it comes to holidays, I  tend to revert back to a child-like state and almost die from uncontrollable anticipation as I not-so-patiently wait for the day! ;)  Usually by the time everybody in the house picks a dish to make we have quite a feast! Yes, I ate way too much and enjoyed every bite! ;) Pies{my Mom’s cranberry pie was the best!} and Puddings and turkey and stuffing{made by Dad=fantastic!} and rolls and sweet potato casserole and , yes, even a green bean casserole{because you can’t call it Thanksgiving without one!} We, obviously, are still enjoying the leftovers. :) Thankfully even the guys chipped in on the cooking and everyone had fun in the kitchen! How was YOUR thanksgiving?

Just a few random pictures from our day. :) Hover for description!

“O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.”
Psalm 34:3

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20
