Alsea River Turkey Heron

Since the Alsea wild turkeys haven’t made it this far west yet, I’ll have to make up my own turkey.

We have so many things to be grateful for; God, Jesus Christ and family are at the top of our list.


We miss the family who aren’t near and enjoy the family who are near (not pictured).


Sometimes our blessings are perfectly clear and other times we have to look for them in small places.


But one thing is obvious, we have more blessings than we could ever dream up.

A grateful person is rich in contentment.  An ungrateful person suffers in the poverty of endless discontentment (see Luke 12:15).

Happy Thanksgiving!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

Thanksgiving always makes me grateful that I have never gone hungry.  I know that many have not been as fortunate.

Our church asks us to fast for 2 meals, once a month, and donate the cost of those meals to feed the hungry.

I am grateful to know that 100% of those funds directly feed the hungry; first locally then world-wide when there is any remaining.

Preserved Applesauce

This year we had so many apples that we were even able to preserve some for the future.

I have been greatly blessed by a loving God!  He is the source of every good thing in my life.
