Happy Thanksgiving

Shianne was so excited last week that she got to perform on stage twice. Once for the parents and then in front of the entire 5th grade. She is quite an entertainer; not afraid one bit- in fact she gets on stage and comes alive. She did a great job. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

1 Thessalonians 5:18
In everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

I just love the seasons up here; I took this picture last week from my car...

Shianne singing...

Someone got a case of the giggles!!! Can't you just hear her? :)

Jimmy with Moose...

I am reminded today to be thankful for EVERYTHING!!!

I will leave you with a quote I heard at church last week from guest speaker John Ortberg...

"Gods' desire is to create the best version of YOU!"

Ponder on this; and allow Him to create the best version of YOU; not the version of someone else you think you should be for Him- but instead; allow Him to make the best of YOU!
Because lets face it- anything else is just setting ourselves up for failure. Just like the seasons He will constantly change and mold us into what He knows is best. There are storms in between these seasons but I am learning to be Thankful in all things. He has a plan for each and everyone of us. I really don't want to miss it. He has gotten me through many seasons of my life; and I can honestly say I can see the beauty in ALL of them. I've lived life with Him and without Him; too many times I have gone back and forth- enough to know- that I know -that I know I do not want to live life without Him!
