Rag quilt from my sister


This quilt was made by my sister, Trudy for my birthday. She sent it to her daughter, Michelle. When we were on vacation, Michelle gave it to me. I love it !!! It is like getting a (((HUG))) from her !

Here it is again...Just had to share it with you. I love handmade gifts.
.....and since Thanksgiving is just around the corner this is one of my favorite verses on thankfulness:
1 Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
~*~*~*~*~*~

I have to admit, I don't always do so good in the area of being thankful for everything.
I do know, it is God's will for me to be thankful for everything. I have to work on this, I think we all do. We are busy here, and yes, surgery is right around the corner. I am nervous. Not sure when I will check in.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving...

So lovely. I didn't know about your surgery, Deby. I guesss I've been a bit out of touch, but will put you down for prayer.

Hope your Thanksgiving is blessed by the Lord.
