Happy Thanksgiving!

November 30, 2013

That 31 Days Challenge is what I’m blaming for my lack of blogging just because I have to place blame somewhere. I ran out of things to say or stopped having thoughts that I wanted to put into writing (I can’t decide…it’s not that I think I have anything important to say, it’s truly to document these thoughts and moments that come and feel like they change me and remind me of God’s grace and to document our family’s lives and I want to remember that) SO I decided to commence to the Thankful series as in a one day post of what I am thankful for this season.

My list:

This verse:

“He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.” Isaiah 40:11 NIV

This devotional:

Jesus Calling, Sarah Young

This book:

7, Jen Hatmaker

Schedules:

Meaning that my boys take naps.

Pumpkin muffins:

Pumpkin muffins

Polly’s caramel cake that I don’t have a picture of.

Ham and turkey.

My house and the stories behind it.

My amazing friends that take care of me and guide me and offer wisdom.

Family and friends.

These boys:

kuy and cray

And my husband. He’s pretty amazing, too.

I am so thankful to have had our first Thanksgiving at our house last night. We slaved away and got some projects knocked out up until everyone showed up at 5 so today is only for relaxing.

I am so thankful for my families…my parents and Russ’ parents and our brothers and my sister-in-law and my grandmothers and Russ’ grandparents and our cousins and aunts and uncles and the chance to celebrate one Thanksgiving in a house that has been in ONE family for 100 years.

I am so thankful and beyond blessed.

Thanks be to God!

  1. Love this post. You do have much to be thankful for. (and fun to see you two little guys– we used to have 2 little tow head boys about 20 months apart.– now they’re grown with kids of their own).
