Thankful Thursday

Once again it is time to pause and give thanks.  Lynn, my good friend, is hosting it today; be sure you drop by and visit some other blogs today.  You can find her here Today I am singing " All of creation, in heaven and earth, bow down before You and cry Holy, Holy, Holy, they cry Holy.Holy is the Lord". This photo of the pheasant was taken in our oldest daughter's front yard on Saturday.  Isn't it beautiful!
I am so thankful for the Lord's mercy and grace.  I am thankful that my hubby's uncle Joe went home to Glory yesterday and will see Jesus face to face.  His sweet wife preceeded him about 5 years ago and now he will be able to see her again.  "Precious in the sight of the Lord, Is the death of His godly ones." Ps. 116:15
Uncle Joe was a wonderful loving man, husband, father,grandfather,brother and uncle; our family spent time with him years ago at his farm in Tennessee and I will always cherish those memories.
Today I get join the ladies to study the Word and then after we are going to a gals house for lunch. 
I am thankful that tomorrow I am meeting two of my blogging buddies for lunch and shopping.  We try to get together every three months and always have a wonderful visit.  Just wish I could get together with each of you for a visit.
May your day be blessed with His Glory.
