Like my blog?!

Hi everyone,

Being new to this blogging stuff I am still finding things out about it.

Like the “likes” and where they are.

You can like my blog by clicking on an individual title and at the bottom of that blog it has the like button. So you can either click it or not on each individual blog. It is not on the home page that has quite a few titles on it. So if you liked a previous blog you can go to its own page and like it…or not.

We went to church today, did you? Our Pastor spoke on 1 Thessalonians 4: 1-8. It was good! Thanks Pastor Tim. Tonight I led our time of singing before Pastor talked about King Solomon and the 3 books he wrote.

I have a big week ahead, with a lot of saw dust to be made and finishing projects, to get ready for the craft show on Saturday and the Wheaton Academy football banquet that night. Lots of ornaments and other things to do. So I gotta get and stay busy.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and weekend!

Some Turkey fun!

Hi everyone,

I decided to have a little fun with some turkeys!

If you got it flaunt it!

You talkin to me?!

What are these things for anyway?!

Who called who a turkey?

Okay, Tom's going long, on 3, break

When you said "my goose was cooked" I thought you meant MY goose!

Lie low and maybe they'll pay no attention to us

Hope you had a good day!

Thanksgiving Eve

Hello everyone,

Well it is the day before Thanksgiving. The time of year we really reflect on the good that we have or had happen to us. I will be the first to admit it has been a tough year. One month ago I passed the 2 year mark of being unemployed. I never thought it would go past a couple weeks! Then months and now who knows when it will end. On top of all that I have what I have! Do I list it all?! I am sure to miss something or someone or a forgotten moment or incident.

But here are a few.

Always start with family, that is a good place for me.

My wife of 25 years, Laura. She is still here and been through it all with me. I love her and she loves me. My six kids though they are not all kids any more. They are good ones and we wouldn’t give any of them up. My wife’s parents, I think we will keep them (not that we have a choice!) 🙂 I couldn’t ask for better In-Laws. They will be here with us tomorrow. The rest of her family is pretty okay in my book too. No problems there!

My family, there are 7 of us left. My parents have both passed and one sister. We are spread from the Chicago area(4) to Tennessee(1) to North Carolina(2). But we are there for each other in good and bad. If I add their kids in we go southwest to Arizona too. I am number 7 out of the 8 kids if you needed to know, now you do. 🙂

Next how about my church family and our faith! I don’t know how we would have survived with out either. I am a Christian and I believe in our creator GOD who is still active in this world and His WORD, the BIBLE. He sent His son JESUS to live amongst us and die in our place for our sin that if we just BELIEVE in His death and resurrection and ask for His forgiveness and ask the Holy Spirit into our heart and make us new we will have eternal life. It is that simple! That is good enough by itself to be thankful for! Our church family is the best. They have given our family unasked for support and it seems to always come when we need it most, the right time!

We still have a house to live in and the amenities that are in it. We have vehicles to get around in. We have enough to eat (maybe more than I should) (that’s a weighty issue) :). We have our God given talents and our developed skills to use in service of others and ourselves.

And ALL our friends we have made over our life time. With out you…well, hey we wouldn’t be friends! I appreciate having friends.

So there are some of mine. Feel free to leave some of yours in a comment if you would like to, I am sure it will help others and maybe even me.

I hope all of my readers have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

I don’t know if I will post tomorrow. We will be busy. My love to ALL our family!

Later, Harold
