Thanksgiving Day 2012

Oh Give Thanks Unto The Lord.

Thanksgiving Day Prayer

Heavenly Father, on Thanksgiving Day
We bow our hearts to You and pray.
We give You thanks for all You’ve done
Especially for the gift of Jesus, Your Son.
For beauty in nature, Your glory we see
For joy and health, friends and family,
For daily provision, Your mercy and care
These are the blessings You graciously share.
So today we offer this response of praise
With a promise to follow You all of our days.

-Mary Fairchild


We are thankful for the opportunity to be with our family here in South Carolina.  We are in Bluffton with our son Nathan, his wife Kacy and our granddaughters Adria, Hannah and Harper.  Harper is almost one month old and we saw her for the first time on Monday, she is a beautiful little girl.  We are blessed to spend this time with this part of our family and we will be thinking of our family in Wisconsin and Washington State. I am thankful for airplane travel and the ability to travel across country in just a few hours.

Happy Thanksgiving!  


  1. LOVE you guys...missing you. Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. What a lovely prayer. It is wonderful when you can hop on a plane and be with family across the country. I just found your blog and we have so much in common that I am now your newest follower. We do not make it to Seattle very often, but that new ride looks like it provides a marvelous view of the city and the sound. We will have to check it out on your next visit (if I can get my husband to get his feet off the ground) he's not big on rides.
    I am a retired activity director, now doing volunteer work. I am new to blogging, but have made some very sweet friends through this media. There is a sweetest in knowing that women all over the world are very much the same. We love our families, feel blessed with the life that our dear Lord has given us and just want to be there to be a blessing to those around us.
    I'm looking forward to following and would be delighted if you should choose to follow me back.
    Have a wonderful day.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)
