Thank You God For Everything
Thank you god for everything, the big things and the small. For every good gift come from God, the giver of them all. And all to often we accept without and thanks or praise. The gifts God sends as blessings each day in many ways. First Thank you for the little things that often come our way.
The things we take for granted but don’t mention whole we pray.
Then, Thank you for the “Miracles” we are much to blind to see. And give us new awareness of our many gifts from Thee. And help us to remember that the key to life and living is to make each prayer a prayer of thanks and everyday Thanksgiving. For of Him, and Through Him, and to Him are all Things to who be glory for ever. Romans 11:36
Pam and Marlin Mathis recently went on a fall trip to Canada. Pam a retired teacher had waited a long time for the fall leaves of the Northeast and was not disappointed.
They flew into Quebec and boarded the Norwegian Dawn and sailed down St. Lawrence to Sydney. Nova Scotia then the Bay of Fundy. At the Bay of Fundy they visited the village of St. Martin where they watched the coastal changes of the tides go in and out.
The village was getting their lobster boats ready for lobster season the first of November. They totally enjoyed lobster roll, lobster and the famous blueberry pie. They finished the tour at Bar Harbor Main where they both agreed had the best colors of fall foliage
I was so pleased and surprised on Friday when Pat our florist stopped by to see me. She also saw two of her favorite little boys, Carter and Aiden Cheek.
Richard Freeland had just returned from Illinois where he went bow hunting at a camp. Bagged him one early so he didn’t get to stay long. Nice deer he got.
Saturday brought Charlene and Butch Duschame by for a visit to check on me. It makes you feel good when some says we just came to check on you. Oh what a blessing.
Tyler and Ashley Cheek and Joshua Graham traveled down to Baton Rouge on Friday for the L.S.U. Football game on Saturday. That gave the boys a chance to stay with Store Granny and Nessa Granny the weekend. We did enjoy those boys, Carter, Aiden, Cooper.

Remember: So log as you see one star in the sky the sun has not risen. As long as one Leak admits the water into the ship it is not safe. If one sin reigns in a man’s heart, and it practiced in his life,, Jesus is not his only King.
