CHRISTMAS PUPPIES

I wanted to post about a gift I received today in the mail...however I can't up load the photos. The computer will "let" me up load a photo from my banner file, so this is what you get today.
I will try to post my gift before this weekend. Enjoy this little vintage card. I must say THANK YOU to Sharon from My Vintage Studio who sent me the gift, for no reason...more about that this week.

I will do a little "THANKFUL THURSDAY". I am very Thankful for a warm home. I have no idea what life is like for the homeless. My mind doesn't want to go there. In Minnesota we have LONG and COLD winters. The shelters sometimes have to turn people away in the winter as they are full. Can you image that??? We do have a "rule" that your gas can't be turned off during the winter months if you get behind in paying your heating bill. Sometimes I say a prayer for the homeless...and I really hope that it helps. I know that God is in control and SEES everything and I wonder if He is sad when He sees the homeless.

Stay warm, continue to be Thankful and help when you can in anyway that you can. God Bless.
Deb

it is hard to believe there are so many homeless people. And I am afraid there are going to be more.

Don't ya just hate it when the computer wins.

I love to receive surprises in that mail. I got something from my sister last week I wasn't expecting.

Hope you win the next round with the computer.

Love the vintage doggie card. Thanks for sharing it. Look forward to seeing the pictures of your goodies. Aren't blogging friends just the best?! I do feel for the homeless people. There are several organizations in our area that give them places to stay in the winter, but not all of them do. I am thankful for the warm roof over my head even though we have to turn the thermostat back to 68. Twyla

Hi Sis ~ I love that card...tooo cute!

It is very sad to see homeless people and with the economy the way it is, there are bound to be more of them in the months to come. I pray they will be kept warm and fed during the upcoming cold months.

Hugz,

What a cute little card. I love vintage cards, but you know that all ready.
I too pray for the homeless. While I am close to the city, I'm in a burb where we don't see many, but there are about three homeless people that I see almost everyday pushing their carts. We have very mild winters but brutal summers. I wonder where they go, how they are and hope they find shelter.
Long ago when I was younger, we kind of adopted an older homeless man. He would stay under a freeway overpass. In the evenings, around six pm, we'd find him and give him dinner. He was a vet that was never able to right himself after the vietnam war. One day we went to give him his dinner and he wasn't there. My brother in law is the one who found him, but we all seemed to send what we could to this man. With our economy, I often worry we'll see more families and children become homeless.

I love the puppies Deb. They are so sweet.

I can't imagine being homeless either. Here they have to turn people away too. Wouldn't that be scary?

I too worry and pray for the homeless and especially the families. I am afraid that there will be many more very soon if the economy keeps tanking. I, like you cannot imagine what this would be like as I have always had a warm home. I thank God and will remind my friends to pray. I try to help by working in the food closet at church.

These days more and more people are becoming homeless because of the economy. You are right, I am so thankful for a warm home too. I think your winters are even colder than ours here in Ohio.

I often imagine, too, about what it would be like to be homeless and alone...especially when I am feeling low about life. It always reminds me to be thankful for what I have. What really makes me sad is to hear of children who are living in shelters....noone in the United States should ever go to bed hungry or have to live in a shelter!
