Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
Ephesians 2:7-10 The Message

Happy Thanksgiving

Greetings Family and Friends

As we enter this week of Thanksgiving, I have much to thank God for. First of all I thank Him for allowing our family to serve Him in this beautiful place we call "The Middle-of-Nowhere" Nevada. I thank Him for our church family and for my husband and kids. I thank Him for the little blessings we receive each day through friends and even strangers. I thank Him for our family back home in Washington. I thank Him for all of you who are praying for us and supporting us finanacially, this is your ministry too. God is good, all the time.

This past Sunday we were hanging out after church and Butch noticed that he was seeing eye to eye with Spencer. So...we got out the pencil, stood everyone up against the wall and measured. ALL of us. What we found out is this...Butch isn't as tall as he used to be, but is currently still the tallest. I am an inch shorter than him. Spencer has only 1/4 of an inch to catch up with me. Grady is about an inch behind him. And Becca, she's still the shortest and the youngest:) Ha Ha, I think she'll have that one for life! She's shorter than I was at 10, must come from Butch's side of the family. In all our findings I see a scrapbook page developing. Maybe I'll get a chance to work on it this week and post it!

We are looking forward to Turkey Day and feasting with friends once again this year. More about that later. Last week we had a Church Family Thanksgiving Dinner at the community center. We had a good turnout with 58 people attending. It was nice to see some new faces. My mind is already moving on fast forward to December and all the events scheduled at the church. Once again we will have a Christmas Party and this year we are doing a Christmas Play. Pray for that one, I have lots of help so we should be able to pull it together!

Wishing you all a Wonderful Thanksgiving.

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift. 2 Corinthians 9:15
