You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

Onward!

Thanksgiving is over - all except the left-overs which to some are the best part. LOL. I hope everyone had a blessed day. This linky will open on Black Friday. How many will be out shopping that day? I really hate it that so many stores are opening on Thanksgiving Day. Just doesn't seem quite right. Since Thanksgiving is late this year, Christmas is just around the corner.

Many people will be away from home this weekend or having company. These will be busy days. We are having relatives coming from California this weekend. We are looking forward to that.

WELCOME

It will be Thanksgiving here in America in just a few days. Even though many are going through trying times, we have so much to be thankful for. As I was thinking about how blessed I am, my thoughts turned to recent news from the Philippines and and more recently the tornados here in he midwest. There are so many concerns that we could spend full time in prayer but, of course, that is not possible. Our daily lives go on and even in spite of so much sorrow in the world and sometimes in our own lives, we can still know that God is good and He knows and cares about every heartache. I know that spending some time each week reading what others have shared here is something like an oasis in the desert. Thank you each and everyone for that.

WELCOME

Thank you for the comments you made about the Prayer Request page. Some didn't even know anything about it. I need to promote it more. Just click on Prayer Requests under the header picture to go to that page. We do have several new requests there so I hope you will take time to go there and pray for those concerns. Of course much prayer is needed for the people in the Philippines who have lost everything. So many have even lost their lives or lost family members. It is such a horrible situation. As the Thanksgiving season is here, we need to remember how blessed we are and thank God for all our blessings.

Prayer Changes Things

This past week we received three new prayer requests. I realized it had been a while since I had updated the Prayer Request page. So these three new ones were added, and I went down through the list and deleted some that I thought were so old that circumstances had changed since they were posted. I hope you will check out the page and pray for those listed. And if you see that someone was deleted who still needs our prayers that you will let me know and I will put them back on the list. Or if you see one that we no longer need to be praying for, I hope you will let me know that as well.

We now have 550 people who follow this blog. It was 549 for a long time so I was delighted to see that one more was added to make it 550. Welcome Gloria as our newest follower. Love that name - Gloria.

And thank you once again for the encouraging comments you make each week. I'm amazed that so many continue to share here each week. If you have not shared by linking here I hope you will consider doing so. Just click on Linking Info under the header picture for more information.

Belgium Connection

Welcome back everybody. I promised this week I would tell you how a blogger in Belgium had something to do with our decision to start this blog. When I started blogging almost 6 years ago, one of the blogs I visited quite regularly was written by a lady named Gattina. And she visited my blog too. One time she mentioned that many people in America share something about their church on their blog. She was somewhat amazed because she said almost no one in Belgium goes to church anymore. I commented back that I thought that was sad. She told me not to feel sorry for them. They liked it that way. They were plenty happy not to go to church.

One day when my niece Ginger was at our house we got to talking about people like that and Ginger suggested we start a blog where people could link spiritual posts and that would be good for people like Gattina who didn't have a church. I thought it was a good idea so we started working on it.  Many many people have linked here since we started it over 5 years ago but I don't think Gattina even visited it once. If she did I didn't know about it. I think that is sad, but you can't force people to be interested. I just thought it was pretty interesting that she played a part in our decision. Even if she never had the blessing of reading what others share here, there are many who have benefited  through the years. I still think it is and was a good thing. I still think it is sad that most people in Belgium including Gattina, don't go to church.
