Sacrifice of Thanksgiving

This week has been a rough one... I have not been myself, and my family has suffered the brunt of my frustrations... still I know that God is still giving me gifts every day, so today I offer up a sacrifice of Thanksgiving.

Psalm 116:17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.

  1. Julie Anne,

    You were a godsend for me today. I wanted to make lasagna easily for dinner tonight, but I was really dreading it UNTIL voila...there was #379 crockpot lasagna and when I clicked on the words I got the "how to" and a COUPON! Does it get any better than this? I don't think so. Thank you so much.

    Hugs and hallelujahs,

  2. I clicked over from Ann’s link.

    I heart picking a favorite from each list – my favorite from yours this week is: 380. A scooped icecream shaped cloud in the sky!! (because that REALLY IS a scoop ice cream in the sky – and you got a picture of it – I’ve never seen one like that – I heart that!!!) {smile} and thank you for this.

    God bless you and keep you – and all of yours Julie Anne.
