Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I hope this fnds you with thansgiving in your heart today and happy!  The sun is out today and such a blessing after several days of gray misty weather. In reflection I have to share that my inspiration as I look toward the mountains from my window, is that I'm reminded how and why I was brought here.
It was always a childhood vision to live in the mountains for the most precious of memories were spendng every Thanksgiving with the youth group at our church who always took a trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee during our Thanksgiving break from school. Year after year it was one of the highlights in my life and where I found the true meaning of Thanksgiving.
I treasure that foundation and feel so blessed to now live in the mountains surrounding me by reminders that every day is a Thanksgiving Day for me and helps me climb the highest mountain of impossibilities.

This morning I heard that Thanksgiving is really Thanksliving, that every day we thank God for each new day as if it was our last.

Psalm 100 (NLT version)

Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
He made us, and we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates the Thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation.

Happy Thanksgiving, friend,


  1. Happy Thanksgiving Jennifer! I like the idea of Thanksliving.

  2. Dearest Jennifer,

    Happy Thanksgiving to you! Today I wrote about the history of Thanksgiving... we should not take things for granted. You at least keep the true meaning in mind and you are grateful for being where you are.
    Thanks for being in my life too.
    Love to you,


  3. AMEN! God bless you Jennifer. Love Thanksliving.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving Jennifer! I hope you had a wonderful day.

  5. Happy Thanksliving! We all need to be reminded to be thankful daily.
