Colours of Fall

Today, is Thanksgiving. At least in Canada.
And there is so much to be thankful for. So, so much. Our family is blessed beyond measure and the things we have to give thanks for could fill pages and pages. . . .but I will spare you ;)

At the beginning of October, I started counting everyday thanks again. I had been doing it for a while and then stopped around May. But I felt that it was something I needed to start again. To continue doing. So what follows, is what I have to be thankful for -so far- in October.
 I am thankful for:
a second vehicle

pre-school 2 half days a week for Owen

not having to turn on the heat yet

sermons that speak to the heart

pumpkin spice lattes

for air that smells like fall  
 enough airmiles for a movie night out coupon (yay date night!)

Bible study with Troy

Enough to eat every day

friends who pray for you

family pictures in the fall

a tire that holds air till I make it home

kids imaginations

baby giggles and cuddles

summer temperatures in the middle of October

a sale on the B.I.G bags of flour

clothes drying on the line

hunting season

walks with *family* in the woods

leaves crunching underfoot

homemade pumpkin pies

2 Thanksgiving dinners

Conversations from the heart

Again, so much to be thankful for, even on the days where we wonder and question and worry. There is always something to be thankful for.

The best way to sum it all up for me?

I am thankful that God is the same. Yesterday, today and forever.
