I Thessalonians 5 lifestyle - to be joyful always; pray continually; and give thanks in all circumstances - but it's undeniable that there are easier (and harder) times to live in gratitude. Right now it's so blessedly easy! A husband I adore, three amazing kids, one more princess on the way, a good job, a comfortable home, surrounded by friends and the Body of Christ. I deserve none of it, it is all the good gift of a God whose love endures forever. And his love for me is unchanging - in good times and easy times and brutally heartwrenching times, his love endures forever.
last year's creations, Sam chose traditional pilgrim and indian hats to accompany this year's festivities.
We had a perfect Thanksgiving - fantastic company, incredible dinner (thank you, Steve!), and hearts full of gratitude. Oh, and Steve even managed to snag the last butter turkey at the grocery store during one of his many "this is really the last time I have to go out" trips to Smiths! A tradition perhaps even more precious than the hats, it is difficult to imagine a thanksgiving without the children fighting over who gets to decapitate the butter turkey.
