Have a safe and happy day!

…for tomorrow is another story.  Maybe we’ll get snow on the beach!?  (It’s rare, that’s why we get excited about it.)

Here’s the weather alert for the north and central Oregon Coast:

A SHARP COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE THROUGH THE REGION FROM THE NORTH ON FRIDAY AND FRIDAY EVENING. SNOW LEVELS WILL BE HIGH INITIALLY…BUT WILL FALL SHARPLY BEHIND THE COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE. POST FRONTAL SHOWERS MAY FALL AS A MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW DOWN TO THE VALLEY FLOOR AT TIMES FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY. PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO END BY SATURDAY NIGHT. GUSTY OFFSHORE FLOW IS THEN EXPECTED TO DEVELOP SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY. THIS OFFSHORE FLOW WILL USHER IN FRIGID CONDITIONS AS IT PULLS IN AIR FROM AN ARCTIC AIR MASS ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE CASCADES.

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.

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.
