Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Left for home and the new month Bible verse.

David, Scout, and Japhy left very early this morning before I was up and walking to go back home.  This was one of those holidays where everything just works out like it is supposed to.  It was one of the nicest Thanksgiving's that I have ever had and it will never be forgotten.  : )

I met the farmer from yesterday but today he was on his tractor.  He stopped to have a chat with me.  He is Farmer Bill. : )  Here he is leaving on his tractor.   The picture is blurry but I like it just the same.

A new month so it's time for another Bible verse for us to learn at church.

Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor,
The mighty God, The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.

Have a blessed Sunday my friends.

  1. I'm glad that you had such a great time and family visit. Art

  2. There is a big old grin on my face because you had such a terrific Thanksgiving! I am sure that your son and grands did, too! AND, I am grinning to think of a bake off! I'd love to be the judge. ; D

  3. The Bible verse now has me humming the selection from "The Messiah" that uses that text for the lyrics.

  4. Hi Karen - our internet was down for several days so no blog reading for me all this weekend. I am now catching up on your visit from your grandchildren. What a fun weekend for your all. You grandkids are so cute in the picture with the huge pizza. So glad they could come and visit you. I also love your quotes about grandkids. The first one is my favorite. So glad they could come and visit you! Have a wonderful week!

  5. I am so glad that you had such a lovely Thanksgiving!

  6. I love the photo of Farmer Bill going down the road on his tractor.

    Glad to hear you had a wonderful holiday with your family.

    I'm going to be singing these words from "The Messiah" now...


  7. So very glad it was perfect for you my friend!!!

  8. I am so very glad your Thanksgiving was spent with your son and his kids. The memories of this will make up for those holidays you didn't have that joy. Our holiday was also pretty good. Almost all mom's family attended a Thanksgiving meal at Brooke Grove. That seldom happens any more - that all her family comes together now that she doesn't live at home any more. It make my heart very light - during a season when I am usually pretty down because of mom's situation.


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
