Giving Thanks: Psalm 107:1


Sunday once again, I hope you all had a good week. Tonight one of our sons is arriving for the Thanksgiving Holiday with another son and his family arriving on Wednesday. Others we will see on Thursday. I am always so thankful to have time with my family. I welcome you back for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ.

Today I am the challenge hostess and the scripture I chose is Psalm 107:1.
"Give thanks to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever."
Hopefully you read my devotional on this scripture on Stampin' Sisters in Christ's home page. If you did you know why I chose the image for the card that I made for this week. I think that my mind is on my grandchildren and the total trust that they, and most children, have that their prayers are heard. Perhaps it is because they do pray with the innocence of youth. We grown ups have a tendency to complicate our prayers. It is a good thing that God knows what is in our hearts because I think I talk way too much! So today I pray, "Thank you God for family, thank you God for the food that we eat, and the many blessings you shower me with. Amen"
This week we welcome a new sponsor, Serendipity Stamps!!  One of you lucky ladies will win this beautiful stamp set for playing in this week's challenge! The challenge is to create a card that shows your thankfulness to God. A thank you card.
