My family. My husband’s has worked his entire life, giving us so much and always his heart. My girls are amazing young women, and my grandchildren are wonderful young adults. I am blessed!

I am so grateful for the abundance God has poured out into my life. I look at all my “stuff” and I’m amazed. And the things I get to do are even more wonderful. I have books out with my name on them. Publishers pay me to write articles, stories, and plays. Me, the girl who couldn’t read in third grade?

However, the blessings that sends a lump to my throats and tears to my eyes are the people in my life. I have wonderful friends.

God’s Abundant Grace!

Day 3 of Gratitude

Victory – I’m so thankful for the victories I’ve had in the past.

From Max Lucado – “Victory becomes, dare we imagine, a way of life. Isn’t it time for you to change your mailing address from the wilderness to the promised land?”

While reading Get Out of the Pit by Beth Moore, I realized I not only was in a Pit, I was decorating it.

Changing your address is a decision to get out of the pit, to move to the promise land.

img_7112Yesterday, in shirt-sleeve weather, we honored our veterans with the Christmas Wreath. Not knowing this was a tradition at the national cemeteries, I thought it a waste of time and money that should be spent on the living. It’s Christmas, after all. Then I spent time watching people like the hero in the red shirt and red cap as he saluted the flag and remembered the friends lost .

As we placed the wreaths and spoke the names over each gave, I saw mom’s and wives and grandchildren of the veterans. Then I realized the money “was” for the living. Each person who bought a wreath had a place in their heart that aches at Christmas time. For them having others with them, hearing bagpipes playing “Amazing Grace,” and speaking their loved one’ name into a beautiful December Day was healing. To hear a State Senator take time “after elections,” to honor your loved ones was gratifying. To remember the life and service of these heroes from all branches, in all wars, was a blessing.

Thank you to the Elizabeth Crockett Chapter and Kathy Hanlon for the opportunity. All this and we blessed the ROTC at Granbury High School with over $800.
