We are heading out of town tomorrow (Tuesday) for a 4 state/two day trip to spend Thanksgiving with family. We will be returning on the weekend, so please pray for safe travel.
Also, pray for my back as I ride that far. I had to get that third shot after all, and so far it has not worked. It takes some time, so I'm hoping the medicine will kick in by tomorrow (please God).
In honor of Thanksgiving I would like to share some riddles I did for my students. They are not hard but are fun.
What Am I?
I sit on your table, but for me it is not a treat. You see me, carve me, and then eat, eat, eat! So don’t be in a hurry or real jerky. I am the Thanksgiving __________?
I’m what you are thankful for besides the turkey and dressing. You can also count me, I am a ___________?
Lots of people come and sit around me, all who are able. A bounty of blessings is on top of me. I am your _________?
You come together with memories and blessings to Oh remember. I love listening to your stories. I am the month of ______________?
I change myself to look beautiful because God I want to please.
You can crunch me, bag me, or throw me in the breeze. I am colorful instead of green today. I am the ______________?
We all get together to share our blessings. We are cousins and aunts, uncles and gramps. And even though I can only rhyme with a nonsense word like chamily, I dearly love them anyway they are my ________?
Did you get them?
Here is another little "Happy" I am truly thankful for:
We have a screen saver program that puts up a new scripture and picture up every day. This past weekend the picture was of two pigs snouts sticking through the slats of a fence. One snout was clean and pink with only a trace of mud. The other snout was muddy, but had a beautiful shiny gold ring in it. The scripture was Proverbs 11:22 "Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a woman who shows no discretion."
We were doing something on the computer that night when Zoie saw the picture. She asked what the verse meant. We explained it was like a woman who was beautiful, but showed too much of her body...was as bad as a dirty old pig with a gold ring in his nose. The next morning as we were getting ready for church, Mike and Zoie were in my office, when I came in still in my PJ's. Mike asked jokingly, "Are you going to church like that?" That's when Zoie popped up, "Only if she wants to look like a pig with a gold ring in it's nose."
Lastly, on a serious note. I am most Thankful for Jesus. Without Him there would be no reason for thanks...no good left at all.
I am saved, forgiven, redeemed and loved beyond my own comprehension.
I am thankful that you are too.
God bless your Thanksgiving.
I love you all.
