Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the LORD, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.  
For the LORD is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

~Psalm 100

For today…November 23, 2009

Outside my window…the first hints of morning light–soft blue

I am hearing…my dog’s dreamy ‘barks’

Around the house…painting supplies ready to be used this week

I am remembering…my husband working on finishing the garden shed * children helping with yardwork * quiet family meals * ‘girly’ tea with friends

I am hoping…to get the family room & dining room painted this week

I am thinking…why has the Lord given me such blessings?

From the kitchen…venison stew * ham & corn chowder * maybe something with turkey  (0;

From the learning rooms…a week off from studies which leaves room for us to focus on life lessons and home economics

On my mind…how to best use the time I have away from school this week

Looking forward to…beginning a new category here at Fragrance of Truth–Home & Garden

I am (still) readingThe Keeper of the Bees

I am going…to finish grocery shopping today in order to avoid the rush later this week

A helpful hint to share…instead of pouring out the dog’s water or half-used water bottles, I store the left overs in a gallon-sized pitcher then use it to water house plants

One of my favorite things…’tucking in’ the garden for the winter

Noticing that…the state of the church in America continues to slip into apostasy–more prayer needed!

Pondering these words“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot.  I could wish you were cold or hot.  So then, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.  Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’–and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked–“  Rev. 3:15-17

A picture thought to share


Have a happy Thanksgiving!







Both my father and my father-in-law served our country in the military.  In their honor and in honor of all men and women who have served to protect and defend our country, I say, “Thank you and may God richly bless you!”




What a wonderful week we just spent with family for Thanksgiving!  The LORD granted us bountiful blessings too numerous to count, but I will share a few:

safe travels through tricky weather
yummy food
fellowship with like-minded believers
loving embraces
challenging discussions
fun games and activities
thankful hearts
generous gift-giving
loving family
hope for future gatherings

How awesome is our God! 

Let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare His works with rejoicing. 
Psalm 107: 22
