Month of Thankfulness, The beginning of my list with Linky

 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
Psalm 34:1-3 

For each Sunday in the month of November I will be posting my list of Thanksgiving.  I've been trying to write down 10 things every day that I'm thankful for.  I find it's very hard to complain about anything when I turn my heart to gratitude.  Feel free to link up if you have any Thanksgiving related posts or a list of your own.

  1. Those were such great words. Thank you for posting it for this Sunday.

  2. I am thankful for many of these same things. Thanks for sharing your list with us.
    Have a blessed thankful week.

  3. Hi Ivy!

    This is my first visit! I love that you are doing this! I am working on a list of 100 reasons that I am thankful this month in a Monday Series on my blog called: Celebrating Living Thanksgiving over at "Seeds of Encouragement Sewn with Grace". It was so thrilled to find you are doing something similar! I have linked up with your party. I would invite you to join my party if you would like to...I am excited about getting to know you, Ivy. I feel so blessed to be at home as well. It is such an amazing blessing to be home to care for our home and our family and be able to focus on being the helpmeet my hubby needs. It is such a joy to find someone who loves it as much as I do.

    Blessings to you and your family!

    Mary Joy
