“Thank You”


Before we dive into that turkey or ham or whatever else may tickle our fancy- let us all take a moment to think of all the things we are Thankful for. Just stop and take a deep breath and remember to enjoy all the little moments of today. No need to stress over the meal or shopping deals.

Let us remember to say Thank You for all the amazing people and things we are so richly blessed with.

Thank Him for the big & small-
Thank Him for it ALL!

Restored Ministries wants to Thank all of our followers and fans! We appreciate you ALL!

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

A little turkey day music to get you in a Thankful mood! ~ XXOO Michelle Bollom

Thank you for the summer
And thank you for the rain
And thank you for the pleasure
Thank you for the pain
Thank you for the flowers
That bloom in early may
And thank you for the winter
That washes fall away
I want to say thank you
Thank you for it all
Thank you for the deserts
Thank you for the trees
Thank you for the failures
And for the victories
Thank you for the pruning
That gives me room to grow
Thank you for the seasons
Where I learn to reap and sow
So come, let us worship
Let us release a joyful sound
Let us enter his presence
Let us all bow down

2. I just started blogging in June 2014.

4. I am a southern girl without an accent. All my years in customer service and communications speaking to people they would be shocked I was from Texas and that I had no accent. I now speak in mostly slang and not so properly and of course I do say Ya’ll!

5. I used to cuss like a sailor- thankfully Jesus has helped me with that!

6. I rapped with Grammy Winner Mandisa in front of almost 30K people in St. Louis at the Love Life Conference. Proof on Vimeo! Michelle Mac is my rapper name!

8. Advice to a new blogger is to engage, tag, follow back and keep writing
