To my niece Vienna:

I love your cuddles, your smiles, your giggles and yes, even your frowns.

 You're just too cute!

 I pray earnestly that you will grow to be a woman who seeks after God and who's greatest desire is to honor Him! May He do great things in your life for His glory! 

Your auntie will always be here for you, to pray for you and to talk with you through all life's joys and trials. Keep your eyes on Him, dear girl, and He will not forsake you. I love you my precious niece!

(Many thanks to Gracie for taking these pictures of Vienna and I)

The joy of being a Christian is made full when we're able to thank God for His goodness to us in the good times and the hard.  Over this last year I've been humbled as I think of all the ways God has been gracious to me.  From the darkest valley to the highest mountain, He has been my strength and my joy.  This year, if asked what I'm thankful for I will say, "I'm thankful and blessed that my God is patient and good to me."  He alone knows what is best for me and nothing that happens in my life, good or bad, is in vain.  

This year we get to celebrate what God has done for us with this charming girl!  It's Vienna's first Thanksgiving and yes, she will be tasting the food too!  I'm very thankful for her spunky personality and precious smile that would melt the hardest of hearts.  

I'm thankful too, for family, grandparents, and old and new friends to celebrate Thanksgiving with.  He is good!


Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever!  Psalm 118:1

I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations.  Psalm 108:3

I will give to the Lord the thanks due to His righteousness, and I will sing praise to the name of the Lord, the Most High.  
Psalm 7:17

I give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify Your name forever.  Psalm 86:12
