Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
I Thessalonians 5:18
give thanks in all circumstances, for this is
God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
My prayer is that I will have an attitude of gratitude that transforms Thanksgiving into "ThanksLIVING" during the holidays and the coming year. What a year of amazing blessings!
This has been a wonderful beginning to the holiday season. We had lunch with Larry's family and dinner with my side of the family on Thanksgiving Day. It's always extra special when we spend time with family.
A dear friend came over Friday and put up the greenery on the banister and fireplace. It is so festive looking. Larry, Chad, and I decorated the rest of Friday and finished this afternoon. Larry has already put up all the boxes.
We were able to get in all the exercise times this week. At the suggestion of the trainer, I began using a walker on Wednesday. My ability to walk straighter, more upright, and with more speed is already better. I do not expect to receive speeding tickets any time soon, but I am noticing an improvement. Each day seems to bring more strength. By the way, my ankle has no or very little swelling any more ... and the bruising is gone!
Larry is such an incredible blessing. He continues to help with the stretching, takes me to exercise, cooks, encourages...all with such a sweet and loving spirit.
Thank YOU for your continued prayers and encouragement during this time. It definitely makes a difference.
