Happy Thanksgiving

We are preparing for Thanksgiving
and turkeys seem to be popping up everywhere!!

Sister Maria Augustine is preparing a small one here in the photo below. She drying him /her off after a good bath.



A friend of ours in Groves, TX down by the Gulf, sent us two large "Bread" Turkeys. Very clever, beautiful and so soft and yummy ...



We would like to share some lovely thoughts with you on this special day of gratitude for God's gifts.


Thanksgiving Day comes once each year
Our president proclaims it far and near.
Thankful for the bounty of our land,
The harvest that makes this nation grand,
Bestowed us from above,
God bless this land,
This precious land we love.

                        Oh, Heavenly Father,
                        We thank Thee for food and remember the hungry.
                        We thank Thee for health and remember the sick.
                        We thank Thee for friends and remember the friendless.
                        We thank Thee for freedom and remember the                                              enslaved.
                        May these remembrances stir us to service.
                        That Thy gifts to us may be used for others.
                        Amen.
from "Dear Abby" in the Lufkin Daily News, 11/21/18

We pray everyone has a pleasant, peaceful, warm and cheery Thanksgiving with Family and Friends.
