The response to this give-away and the opening of my online store has been incredible.  I have received so many wonderful compliments and words of encouragement for “Blue Creek Boutique”.  I appreciate everyone of you. Hurry and register before it’s over!



On to Thanksgiving Thoughts…

First,  I want to list a few of my favorite “thankful” things.

  1. The Plan of Salvation – wonderfully free for the taking. I hope that you all claim this most Holy of give-aways for yourselves.     What to pray:
    Dear God, I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sin. I am willing to turn from sin. I now invite Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Savior.  Amen.  
  2. My wonderful husband and precious daughters, Alex and Caroline.
  3. My sisters and brother and their families
  4. For health and home
  5. For freedom



Here are some Thanksgiving photographs from Blue Creek Home.


Come in...I am thankful for my blog buddies!




G-Man insists that this crazy turkey greets everyone who enters!!

Sometimes this little guy is waiting outside our bedroom door or right outside the bathroom door when I come out.  It has gotten to be a joke for him to follow “mom” around the house.   After the heart palpitations have subsided, I can laugh with the jokesters!!!




I love decorating the foyer  for the holidays.








All of the farm animals are glad that the turkey has already been caught!  I think the pig should be a little worried, though!  It looks like the spiraling marks are already in place.  Run little piggy, RUN!


Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    My friend, I just want to say thank you for being such a good witness! Thank you for talking about the plan of Salvation and what one must do to be saved!
