Day 239- Thankful for a bunch of things in spite of difficulties

This has been a rough week for me. And yet, as always, God has sent so many blessings. Every October for close to three decades I’ve experienced at least a day or two of depression. This year I’ve already had a few brief  run-ins with it, and we’re only halfway through the month. I apologize… Read More Day 239- Thankful for a bunch of things in spite of difficulties

Day 66 – Thankful for artists and beautiful art

Greetings have begun to arrive wishing our family a Blessed Christmas and New Year. I always appreciate the greetings, whether they come on photo cards, handmade cards, or store-bought cards. But sometimes a certain card will stand out because of its stellar artwork!
