#38 - Weekly Thankfulness & Growth Report

If you were following this blog in 2015 then you will be familiar with my "365 Days of Being Thankful" challenge.  I have missed reporting on my thankfulness since I finished my challenge back in November, so I decided to at least give a weekly Thankfulness Report & include a Growth Report also.  Growth in our Christian walk, growth in the garden & growth on this blog.  Finally, I am also including a "Posts From the Past" feature - ENJOY!

This week I have been thankful for unseasonable warm weather which gave us a chance to do the last grass cutting (making it easier to rake the leaves).  I am especially thankful for daily devotions and how God speaks to me through His Word.

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.  Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven."  Matthew 5:3-12

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and so often we don't realize how truly blessed we are in this country.  Please read this entire post by clicking on the link below.

We are just now in prime Autumn color (which is very late for my part of Michigan) so leaf raking has only just begun.  Our sweet potatoes are still not quite ready for harvest.

Last year I visited the Toledo Zoo and started a series on my blog where I featured one animal each week.  The strange thing was that I went to the zoo to look at animals but ended up taking most of my pictures of all the plants and foliage that grew at the zoo.  Below is my first post in this series:
The Toledo Zoo - Feature#1 & "Name That Plant"
