Thankful ~ Part 1

As we count down the last days to Thanksgiving I want to share some of the things I am thankful for!

There are a number of things I am thankful for this year! The first (because I've got a picture and not because it is the most important) is this fun decoration for my front yard. :) I've had it since the tail end of October, but there is more to it than that! Good friends of ours (the kind of friends you can call [or rather that call you] and say "hey, whatcha doing right now??? Wanta come over for dinner... we're putting burgers on." ~ you gotta love that!) were in the market for a bale of hay the whole month of September and we all had our eyes open (ok, Emily wanted it and her DH didn't care one way or the other.) :) Once it was finally found, she headed over to Lancaster for this fun scarecrow and then added the pumpkins etc. to make it even more fun!

It graced their front porch the whole month of October... then God did something amazing (another thing we are all thankful for this year)! These friends have been raising support to be missionaries in Togo, West Africa this next year and things were slow going. They shared in Sunday school at the end of September that they had 60% of their support, and so we prayed as we did each week that the Lord would provide. By that afternoon, 100% of their support had been provided and Monday morning they called their landlord and gave their 30 days notice.

These sweet friends, as they packed up their home in the last days brought this fun decoration to our home to finish out the season! Their budget wasn't as tight as ours generally is and they are always so generous to think of us in all sorts of little ways! I think of and pray for them each day as I smile at my fun scarecrow and hay bale!

I thank God for my fun decoration and (mostly) for the reason I got to have it!

What great friends you have! True Friends are very hard to come by, and that is something truly to be thankful to the Lord for.

I am happy to hear that they raised their support. And I love the scarecrow, very cute. :)
