Just as food is to our body, God's word is to our soul, lets feed our soul and spirit, then we will give a recipe to fill the body, I love the word of God, and I have posted a Thanksgiving post on my ladies message board, every day we go list some thing we are thankful for, some times we use scripture some times it is just something God has blessed us with for the day. The point is to keep us aware of where our thanksgiving needs to be directed, God truly blesses each of us daily, and abundantly,  let us this month of Thanks Giving, concentrate on the one whom all blessing come from, and give him the due thanks he truly deserves. God bless you my dear blogging friends, and without God it is impossible to have a Happy Thanks Giving. Here is some scripture of thanks giving, may it bless your heart as it does mine. Below I will post some recipes for your thanksgiving dinner too, lots of love and prayers.

Psalm 95:1-6

1O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

you picked just the right scripture, and thank you. I am thankful God created pecan trees so we could have this wonderful pie. I told my husband this morning as I poured our coffee, how blessed we are to be inside and drinking coffee and have a fridge full of food. thanks for the reminder

Hallelujah. If we didn't feed our spirit - we'd be sick and weak. So glad we are able to partake of the Bread of Life and Living Water!
I've never heard of chocolate with pecan! Hmmm... It sounds yummy! Now the broccoli salad is just my style. I could eat something like that every day. Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful recipes and the Scripture.

That chocolate pecan pie looks really yummy. Thanks for sharing the verses. Right now I'm reading Psalms 119 and I'm getting a lot out of the reading.

Spending time is Psalms is always a blessing. This is a good one, too.

My BH is type 2 diabetic, so the pie doesn't interest me. But that broccoli looks sooo good. Not listed in ingredients, but aren't there small tomatoes? Or a radish or two? Just a little pick-me-up in taste it appears. Good stuff!

I just realized there's something I have to be thankful for that I never thought of before....In Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving in mid October, but because most of my fellow bloggers celebrate in November, I get two months of Thanksgiving posts!
