From Seekerville to You...

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!


O Lord that lends me life,
Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.
~William Shakespeare

The thing I'm most thankful for right now is elastic waistbands.

So many anonymous poems.

And who can blame them for not admitting they wrote it.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Now Thank We All Our God has been running through my head this Thanksgiving season:

Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done, in Whom this world rejoices;
Who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.

O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts and blessèd peace to cheer us;
And keep us in His grace, and guide us when perplexed;
And free us from all ills, in this world and the next!

All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given;
The Son and Him Who reigns with Them in highest Heaven;
The one eternal God, whom earth and Heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.

Have a blessed day.

Peace, Julie

Praying everyone has safe travels and elastic waistbands. ;)

We all are praying for and thanking God for every remembrance of our Military and families. Thank y'all for making our celebration in freedom possible.

And may the Lord continue to richly bless Seekerville!

Julie, I love that hymn! What a perfect way to face this day, armed with spatulas, spoons and basting tubes.

Bless you!
