By Way of Introduction . . .

Well, today is Wednesday (okay I know you probably figured that out all ready), and on this Wednesday I'd like to introduce you to Thursday, well at least the Countdown to the Day of Thanks Thursdays that will begin tomorrow.

I wanted to start this last week, but I just couldn't get it all together . . . but this week, look at me go. . . no busy week, you are not slowing me down this time, okay anyway . . .

What is the Countdown to The Day of Thanks all about you ask? Well I thought it would be fun to share with you some of our fun traditions, good food, maybe a story of two from Days of Thanks past and the like. I've also been doing some very intense internet studies on games and all manner of fun stuff for this particular day (isn't that funny "intense internet studies" for games ~~ I crack me up :0) and thought it might be fun if every Thursday until The Day of Thanks, or probably better known as Thanksgiving, if we shared a few fun ideas and traditions together.

I'd love to hear your traditions, recipes, games and the like. I'd love to adopt some new traditions for our fam (with your approval of course ~~ I'd never want to barge my way into your traditions, because that's just not cool :0) Now if I knew how to do a Mr. Linky dude I would, but since I don't and probably won't take the time to figure it out this week anyway, please feel free to play along on your own blog if you'd like (if you have one, and if you don't you really should ~~ really you should :-) and just leave a comment so we (yes you too) can come visit. I'm always looking for new ideas!!!

Oh yes and every Thursday leading up to it (except maybe for the one when we're gone to Mayo getting a tune up on the ol knee, and then maybe I can talk one of you into posting for me ~~ yeah we'd have to work out the detail ~~ but we can, WE SO CAN!! ~~ okay anyway :-) I'm also going to include some things I'm Thankful for and Thankful moments ~~ because after all it is The Day of Thanks and wow do I have a lot to be thankful for ~~ so please feel free to list your Thankful things on your blogs (if you have one and if you don't you should :o) so we can be Thankful together.

Let our hearts be turned toward the Lord during these times and all times and may we proclaim with David I Chronicles 16:8-11:

"Give thanks to the LORD, call on His name;
Make known among the nations what He has done.
9 sing to Him, sing praise to Him;
tell of all His wonderful acts.
10 Glory in His holy Name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
11 Look to the LORD and His strength;
Have a blessed day dear ones,


  1. Can't wait to hear about some of your Thanksgiving traditions, recipes. etc. I need some new ideas! I like your idea of doing a list of "Thankful Things", too!

    Hope you're doing good and I am still praying!

    Love you, friend!

  2. Have you gotten in on my giveaway? I launched a new online coffee shop: Get The Bean. To celebrate we are giving away 1lb of coffee every Friday during October.
