Welcome to the Literacy Musing Mondays Link-up Thanksgiving week! I’m super thankful to be included as an LMM host. I’ve really enjoyed reading what you all share each week. 🙂
In addition to being thankful for being an LMM host, I’m thankful for lots more things like family, food, & home but other things, too, like chocolate, sparkly nail polish, and whimsical fairy lights. But, can I be honest with you? I’m in a season in which being thankful is about as desirable as chewing gravel. Difficult to explain, but I’m thankful in the midst of not feeling very thankful.
It’s during hum-drum times like these that I have to fight extra hard to BE thankful. Because that’s God’s will for me.
I’m glad that I’m participating in the Thanksgiving 30 Day Scripture Writing Plan because writing out God’s Word every day keeps my focus on God and off of me.
One more thing: We have Abraham Lincoln to thank for the annual celebration of Thanksgiving!
“I do therefore invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens.”
If you or your kids have never read Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Thanksgiving Day Proclamation, do so this week!
Now on to our linkup. Let’s meet our hosts:
Last Week’s Top Clicked Post!
Angela offers a thought-provoking checklist of what makes a parent who leads or who dictates. I found some valuable points on both lists. I hope you will check out this great post this week.
In her post, Michele beautifully writes about Eve’s legacy to us and how we all wear God’s bloody grace of redemption. It’s easy to want to blame Eve for the world’s mess, but in reality, we are all just like her, finding ourselves all too often “hanging around the wrong tree at the wrong time.” Read and be blessed!
