Thanksgiving 24

Photo from here.I’m thankful for the flock of waxwings (or maybe it’s an ear-full of waxwings) that have been stripping the berries from my mayday tree. They’ve brought joy to my household and also to the people walking by on my street.

What are you thankful for today?

  • Julana is thankful that she still has her teeth. (Me, too.)
  • Elle is thankful for this day.
  • Connie is thankful for two scriptural truths.
  • Kim is thankful for the works of the reformers.
  • Ann is thankful that she was able to go out to lunch with her husband.
  • Lisa is thankful for less noise.
  • Dorothy is thankful for peace and comfort.
  • Kim is thankful to be an American.
  • Rosemary is thankful for Jesus.
  • Update: Meredith is thankful “for good blogs which teach, encourage (in the best sense of the word) and help us to grow in maturity - for good, godly blogs written by mature Christian women who, since discovering the world of blogs, have taught me much about how to be the wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend that God would have me be. Still a long way to go…and that will always be the case this side of heaven…but greatly encouraged by constant good examples of godly living provided in well written, well prayed over, godly blogs.”

Here are three ways you can join in the thanksgiving. 

  • Mention something you’re thankful for in the comments here and I’ll included it in one of my thanksgiving posts, or
  • Email me to tell me what you’re thankful for and I’ll include it in a post, or
  • Post your thankful thought(s) on your own blog, send me the link(s), and I’ll link to your post(s). If you plan to make your thanksgiving posts daily during the month, let me know that and you won’t need to send me daily links.

More details here.

If you’ve got a thanksgiving post and I missed it, please let me know so I can add your link.

I love waxwings! They are very friendly birds, too! Haven't seen one in years, but when the boys were little, we had a whole flock pass through and stayed for several days. One actually stayed on for about a week and he would answer me when I 'called' to him. They're my favorite bird!

We have lots of birds around our home, but I don't think we have waxwings. They sound lovely!

We were coming and going from the house, walking right by the tree they were all perching in and they would just sit there making their waxwing noise. I think they have left us now, moving on to another tree to feed on.
