  Making two scrapbook layouts of a younger me and a younger hubby and making Thanksgiving cards made me reflect on how truly grateful I am for everything. Grateful that David has a job, grateful that I get to travel and see my daughter, grateful for my parents, sister, brothers, aunts and uncles, cousins (of whom I have plenty), mother-in-law, brothers-in-law, my dogs, my kids (definitely my kids).

JD cleaned out one of the Jeeps for me today and bought it a drawing pad that belonged to Kimberly. I opened it up and lo and behold there were all her drawings and ideas for her wedding to the first guy she was engaged too. Made me think how grateful I am that God's plan are not necessarily our plans. He has all things in control and takes care of the details if we just put our trust in Him. (Proverbs 3: 5-8) She is now married to a wonderful man who loves her very much.

Here's the cards I made: just using leftovers of paper, ribbon, rub-ons, Stampin Up acorn stamp, markers, etc.

Card #1

Card #2


I am grateful for:

Gods grace, goodness and greatness because He has given me

Richly, all things, salvation and many blessings

And for this

Truly thankful I am;

Enjoying life each and every moment of each and every day

Filled with His Spirit from above

Underneath the shelter of His wings and His encompassing


Never enough my frail human cries out

Everlasting Father, eternal God

Save me, keep me

Shepherd of my soul.
