Scriptures of Thanksgiving – Day 27

Thankgsgiving Scripture Activity

Today is the day known as “Black Friday” here in the United States.  It is the day that officially kicks off the Christmas shopping season (or at least for many it does).  Today our family will be spending the day going through  our Christmas things and starting to put up our Christmas tree.  For our family’s Thanksgiving scripture activity, we are reading Psalm118:21-29 and copy verse 29.   Here is the graphic for it.

Psalm 118 29

          Today I am thankful for my family.  I have a husband who has been a tremendous blessing to me.  He loves me unconditionally and shows it in everything he does and says.

So what are you thankful for today?

Scriptures of Thanksgiving Day 25 – Psalm 118:1

Thankgsgiving Scripture Activity

     Today is day 25 of our family’s Scriptures of Thanksgiving activity.  Today we are reading Psalm 118:1-7 and copying verse 1.  Here is a graphic I created for today.

Psalm 118 1

     It is wonderful to know God’s mercy endures forever.  He does not have bad days.  Currently I am participating in Proverbs 31 Ministries Online Bible Study for Lysa Terkeurst’s book, “Unglued” and am learning how to maintain my cool rather than losing my temper.  It helps to remember how God grants us mercy and forgiveness even when we don’t deserve it..  So it is important for us to do the same for others.  We need to love the “unlovable” because to God we are all His children and are all entitled to His loving kindness.

So what is going on where you are today?  I would love to hear from you.

Scriptures of Thanksgiving – Days 16 & 17

Thankgsgiving Scripture Activity

So today is day 17 of our Scriptures of Thanksgiving family activity.  Now I have to be honest.  For the past three days, we have not done our activity as a family.  On Saturday, Dennis and I spent the entire day grocery shopping, window shopping and just enjoying time together.  I was very thankful for that opportunity.  Then on Sunday, we spent the day in the kitchen.  We made homemade Chicken soup and homemade White Bean Chicken Chili to put up for later meals.  Everyone in the family seems to enjoy being able to just go grab something to eat of the shelves, pantry or freezer.

Then yesterday, our oldest and our youngest along with myself had eye appointments in the afternoon, so the three of us went to work with Dennis.  I had the fun of having my eyes dilated because our family doctor wants to be sure there are no signs of retinal deterioration associated with my chronic high blood pressure.  I am very thankful to say, that my eyes were very healthy.  In the meantime, we are waiting on a call to tell us when I will be having my trans-esophageal echo-cardiogram done.  I need this procedure because of my chronic hypertension resulting in a thickening of my heart and a hole in between the top two chambers of my heart.  Of course we are also waiting for the doctor’s appointment next Wednesday to find out whether or not I need surgery.  Plus we are waiting to receive our actual orders to our next duty station.  We know where we are supposed to be going and when we are supposed to be reporting there, but still we wait on the actual paperwork telling us it is official.  S

The Scripture verses for yesterday was found in 2 Corinthians 4.  We read verses 13 – 18 and copied verse 15.

2 Corinthians 4 15

Then for today, we are reading 2 Corinthians 9:6-11 and copying verses 10 and 11.  Here is the graphic for it.

2 Corinthians 9 10 11

So what is going on in your world?  I would love to hear from you.
