Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

Our Fourth was some what the same like every other year, Aunt Annie and her family were at grandpas place, we spent the afternoon at the beach, swimming in the waves, hamburgers and hot dogs for dinner and an amazing firework show all around us.  This year the boys played baseball with some friends from church, Uncle Kyle came out for the week, and the sun was actually out!
Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is in it.
Deuteronomy 10:14
