Saturday's Giving Thanks

On the last day of Kelli’s Giving Thanks feature I want to share a few things we are thankful for this year.

2007 has been a very, very difficult year for us with finding out in January my husband had lymphoma, and going through a series of chemo and radiation treatments through September. The Lord has been with us every step of the way and has made it a little easier for us by providing the following:

His presence with us constantly
Helping Joe keep his sense of humor
Support from our children and grandchildren
A wonderful supportive church family
Prayer warriors, both family and friends
Answered prayers
Peacefulness
Intelligent, compassionate doctors
New research, new meds
Joe being able to recover very quickly from the side effects of the chemo and radiation.
We give Jesus all the honor and glory, thanking Him first of all for dying on the cross for each of us. Praise and gratitude to Him, In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit!
The above photos are of a small niche located between the dining room and great room of our house. I change the decor with each holiday. I just added silk fall floweres and foliage to the present arrangement.
Thanks, also to Kelli http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ for hosting Giving Thanks!

Thank you for your interest, please leave a comment! And please do return soon!

Well, you have had a difficult year. I am dealing with a son driving on a suspended license and I worry and pray each day for him.
That pales in what you have had to deal with. I should be thankful for health.Its a perspective and thanks for helping me see that. Whatever we go thru, we just need to be in prayer and never cease.

I am so glad you can be thankful in the midst of your struggles. That in itself is quite a gift.

I was just thinking about your Joe. I remember that you posted he was a bit restless after his treatments had finished since they had taken up a good part of each week. I hope that he's found something he loves to do now, something rewarding and creative and fun.
