Friday that is not black

Not much shopping done by those
in this house on this Friday after
Thanksgiving. We seem to like to
hang out together and eat and read
and watch movies and eat! I am so
thankful for my sister and brother
who came ~~ we are the bottom 3
out of 8 children. This was the first
time since our Mom passed away
six years ago that we have had Thanks-
giving together. AND there they were:
Scripture written on a folded card the
size of a placecard. They were from
a Thanksgiving at my mother's or sister's
house years ago. Memories flooded back.

I'm thankful for this legacy: Scriptures
of thankfulness read by those who were
tiny babes when they were written.
I'm thankful for prayers of our parents
and grandparents. I'm certain of God's
faithfulness to us through those prayers.

"God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame."

Sounds very nice. I'm glad your time together honored Him!
P.S. - Thanks for the beautiful note.

The only shopping we did was the ingredients for making turkey soup and for meatballs (to recycle the dry biscuits) . . .

Beautifully said! What a treasure to have those Scripture cards, and the memories too are a blessing. So much to be thankful for in your life.

Beautiful post, Bonnie! Glad you had a blessed Thanksgiving! Those cards sound like blessings of a legacy! Not shoppers either, time with family and friends is too precious!!
