Did Someone Say “Family Coloring Contest?”

Get a Jump Start on Your Christmas Shopping
Most all the teen to adult family/friends on my list know that they will be receiving the Be Intentional Planner for Christmas. And they expect it, because they love the simplicity, practicality, and intentionality of the small and large planners. At only $15, make your shopping easy by ordering for those on your list!
Advent Starts Soon

As you get ready for Thanksgiving this week, I share with you a heartfelt poem penned by a dear woman in my life.
Lord, teach us we pray
to love and praise you every day;
For every blessing is from above
pure and sweet as a gentle dove.
Teach us always to do thy will
and when you speak to be still;
For You will lead and guide each day
if we will seek thy face and pray.
And may we at this time of year
realize your coming is near;
And spread the news throughout the land
and help to save our fellow man.
So thank you for the blood you shed
to give us life though you were dead;
But rose again to set men free
to live in peace for eternity.
By Shirley McDonald
I pray that you flourish this Thanksgiving!
