1000 Gifts: A Thanksgiving and Christmas Celebration

Praise the Lord!
Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,
Who delights in His commandments.
For his descendants will be mighty on the earth;
The generations of the upright will be blessed.

He will not fear evil tidings;
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
His heart is upheld, he will not fear,
Until he looks with satisfaction on his adversaries.
Ps 112:1-2, 7-8

0082.  a visit to Columbus to visit family for Thanksgiving and early Christmas.

0083.  frequent treks in the woods looking for treasures untold.

0084.  hearing shouts of excitement over a light delicate snowfall.

0085.  decorating for Christ's birth... beginning to prepare our hearts for the birth of a KING!

0086.  best friend cousins... cherishing time to play, run, be silly together, and share everything!
0087.  a chilly, yet fun day playing at the park... and spelling out one of our favorite places - using kidlets.

0088.  the women in my life-  strong, beautiful, tender...silly

0089.  the crowning glory of old men --- grandchildren as they listen to a story read by a booming voice.

0090.  the gifts of family - visiting, sharing, eating, laughing, playing, growing, hiking, etc., etc.
0091.  the bountiful blessings given by God - and remembering to be thankful for them.
