Thanksgiving Greetings

My Favorite time of year is here, Fall and Thanksgiving! I am so grateful for all that YHWH has given me. A wonderful Father, A loving Mother, Beautiful Sisters, And handsome Brothers. Loving Aunts,Uncles, and Cousins . 11 nieces and nephews, A nice place to live, and plenty of food. Cats to snuggle, and dogs to love. I thought I would include a poem in this post, because it its lovely. But before i enter it here, I would like to say I am also thankful for everyone who reads and comments on my blog!!


(Edgar Albert Guest, 1881-1959)

Gettin' together to smile an' rejoice,
An' eatin' an' laughin' with folks of your choice;
An' kissin' the girls an' declarin' that they
Are growin more beautiful day after day;
Chattin' an' braggin' a bit with the men,
Buildin' the old family circle again;
Livin' the wholesome an' old-fashioned cheer,
Just for awhile at the end of the year.

Greetings fly fast as we crowd through the door
And under the old roof we gather once more
Just as we did when the youngsters were small;
Mother's a little bit grayer, that's all.
Father's a little bit older, but still
Ready to romp an' to laugh with a will.
Here we are back at the table again
Tellin' our stories as women an men.

Bowed are our heads for a moment in prayer;
Oh, but we're grateful an' glad to be there.
Home from the east land an' home from the west,
Home with the folks that are dearest an' best.
Out of the sham of the cities afar
We've come for a time to be just what we are.
Here we can talk of ourselves an' be frank,
Forgettin' position an' station an' rank.

Give me the end of the year an' its fun
When most of the plannin' an' toilin' is done;
Bring all the wanderers home to the nest,
Let me sit down with the ones I love best,
Hear the old voices still ringin' with song,
See the old faces unblemished by wrong,
See the old table with all of its chairs
An I'll put soul in my Thanksgivin' prayers. 

Hope everyone has a great day! I love you all!

Photographs from the Edge →Book Review←

Image result for Photographs from the Edge by Art Wolfe with Rob Sheppard
Photographs From The Edge. By: Art Wolfe, With Rob Sheppard.
When I saw this book on the website, i just HAD to get it! When i received it in the mail, i was delighted to find that it was a hard cover!
     Art Wolfe is a wonderful photographer, the pages of this book are filled with beautiful, and colorful pictures from around the world!
   Not only does he show his pictures, but he also tells you what camera he used, and what the settings were! He also adds helpful hints, and tips he has learned! A very good read for any aspiring photographer, or even a learned photographer! Or even for someone who love great pictures!

*I received this books for free from Blogging for Books for this review*

A Bunch of Book Reviews!

LOL! It seems i ran behind when it comes to posting my reviews for books gotten from
bloggingforbooks (A website where you can get some newly released  books for free, all you have to do is post a review on your blog!And for any book worm, like me, free is a wonderful thing! ;)

       So AHEM! Here i go :D

        First off, the oldest one i have received is:

                      Doodletopia: Manga

                                                                         By:CHRISTOPHER HART

You might remember i already RECEIVED a book by Christopher Heart,  His Doodletopia:Cartoons. I must say i enjoyed his first book much better than this one.
When I saw this as an option to get, i was ecstatic to be able to receive another great book by Christopher. His last book had helped me alot in the way of drawing, with lots of step by step pictures... however... his new book is more like an advanced coloring book, and doesn't really teach you how to draw Manga. It still had alot of interesting information in it though!


                     The Drawing Lesson

                                                                                 By:MARK CRILLEY

This book as OK. It didn't really have alot of information about drawing like i thought it would. Also i found the little boy to be a little annoying. Wanting to learn how to draw is one thing, but h followed the lady home. The drawings were very intere
sting to look at, though it didn't really teach much.

                     Natural Color

                                                                     by Sasha Duerr

I was VERY excited when i saw this on the website! They are teaching you what color comes from what plant! It is amazing and interesting! I esp. like that it is a hardback book! And very sturdy!
The book a beautifully photographed guide to the full range of plant dyes available, drawn from commonly found fruits, flowers, trees, and herbs, with accompanying projects. Did you know you could even get an die from Aloe? :D

Another Day, Another Hymn

                             ~Be Thou My Vision~

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Riches I heed not, nor man's empty gain,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven's joys, O bright Heaven's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

My Favorite version of Be Thou My Vision on youtube!

Shalom and may YHWH (God) keep you and your family safe, and filled with his peace that passes all understanding!
