30 Days of Thankfulness - Day 30

Psalm of Thanksgiving

Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples.
Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
Speak of all His wonders.
1 Chronicles 16:8-9
Gary and I have so much to be thankful for.  Our Heavenly Father loves us unconditionally with no strings attached.  We have a loving family that we love to spend time with and they are there at a moments notice when help is needed.  We are also thankful for our loving church family of families and our CR forever family.  Our God has blessed us with so many friends and we are truly thankful for those He has placed in our lives.
During the month of November Gary and I traveled to Tennessee to spend Thanksgiving with my brother L Z, Debbie and family.  It had been 5 years since we had spent time in their home and we so enjoyed the time we had with them.  We had hoped to spend some time with my younger brother Jeff and family but we couldn't make it happen.  Jeff drives an eighteen wheeler and his work schedule just did not work out with time off.  Hopefully the next time he brings a load to California we can hook up.  While in Tennessee Gary and I celebrated our "40th Anniversary."  L Z, Debbie, Joe Ed and Trixie took us to dinner at the Bell Buckle Cafe in Bell Buckle, TN. 
Our last Sunday in Tennessee we attended Sunday school and church with L Z and Debbie.  We felt right at home enjoying the old hymns and the fellowship.  We had met several of the congregation when we were last there in 2007.  We heard a great sermon by Pastor Tim Brown on "King of Truth" and that evening we had the privilege of hearing L Z speak on "My Name is Jesus."
We are so very thankful to our Lord and Savior for blessing us with the finances to travel and most importantly His great love.  November was truly a month of Thanksgiving!
