O GIVE thanks!

I was spending some time this last week in my Mom's Bible and felt the gratitude and thankfulness in her underlinings and notes.

This verse they selected for their 50th anniversary. 
I love that she wrote that in gold pen.

It is a day to be thankful for all the Lord's goodness to us.
His mercy does endure forever.

Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Our family is coming over for a wiener roast today.
We'll pick apples and enjoy  the sunshine.

I'll surely have some photos to share of today's event...
and I'll leave you with the smile of the day...
Mennonite Girls Can Cook signing another contract with MennoMedia.

We are indeed very thankful.

all for now..


  1. Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have a wonderful day! I love seeing the picture from your mom's Bible. How special that she reached 50 years of marriage! I can't wait to hear more about the new book!!!!!!

  2. I am sorry, Lovella. I commented happy Thanksgiving, and then saw that somehow that the comment had doubled somehow so I deleted one of them. Now it looks as if I commented once and deleted that one comment! So sorry!

    All that simply to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!


  3. Seeing your mom's note in her Bible makes me think I should write more in my Bible. :-) Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  4. Love that your mother's Bible was well read and noted for that special occasion. A precious treasure. Congratulations on your new contract! What a lovely photo of you ladies!! Blessings, Pamela

  5. What a treasure your mother's Bible is. My mother's Bible is similarly outlined with notes and special verses underlined. (It is also stuffed to overflowing with papers and cards and things. She also used her Bible as a file cabinet. ☺)

    Congratulations, Ladies, on another contract. You're doing the Lord's work.

  6. What a beautiful notation in your Mom's Bible! I just read about your news and am so excited for you!!! CONGRATULATIONS on your new Celebrations book......can't wait to see it!!!

  7. Happy belated Thanksgiving, Lovella! Seeing your Mom's highlight of this verse was very touching. In this way she is with you always.

    I am so thrilled that a new cobook called "Celebrations" is in the works! Congratulations!
