Around Our Sunday Table - Lovely Poinsettias

Thou hast given so much to me,
Give one thing more, - a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleaseth me,
As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.
~George Herbert~

It is hard to believe that here we are at First Advent.
Where did the year go?
As we gather around our Sunday table
it is time for us to stop and reflect
on the many things we have to be thankful for.

That this cold that hit me came when it did -
on a set of 5 days off work,
allowing me to actually rest.

That my hubby is always willing to help with the little things,
making sure the humidifier is always full,
hauling full laundry baskets up and down the stairs,
even making supper if he has too :)

The job the Lord has provided.
It was so unexpected and not in my field
but is true blessing in so many ways.

Being able to Facetime with my daughter.

Visiting with our son who always keeps
the conversation interesting.

Our wonderful new church family.

What are you thankful for today?
