This is a note to anyone who still reads this blog. I pray that you have had a blessed and happy Thanksgiving day. Whether you are in the US or somewhere else around the world, even if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving day the way we do; Happy Thanksgiving. You see, every day should be a day of Thanksgiving. We should all be thankful for all that we have and the blessings that we enjoy. I hope that over this year, I have been able to release some joy and passion into your life, because life in the Kingdom is filled with joy and passion.
This morning we woke up with a sense of anticipation. We knew that we still had a lot to do before everyone started showing up. We had been aiming for this date as sort of a target date to have the house in order, and we met that deadline. Thanks mostly to Sheryl; the house looks complete. Sure there are a few things left, but there are pictures on the walls and all the furniture is in place. It is a very comfortable house and a great place to live. As we figured, everyone loved the sunroom the most. In fact, that seemed to be the center of the afternoon. We had a total of 17 people for dinner and 6 more came by during the afternoon. It was a very busy time.
I was glad that we got to go by my Dad’s and see my sisters and Dad and Allene before our company came. They ate around 12:30 so we got to see everyone but Jodie and Jeff who were late. It was a quick visit but a good one. We did Facetime Lisa and the family for a little, and I talked with Jennifer later in the evening. But, we had company up until about 10PM, and then we still had to clean the kitchen. It was definitely a busy day. Tomorrow will be good, I don’t work and will be able to run and do some things around here.
It was a very good Thanksgiving; my only regret is that there are so many of my family and friends that I didn’t get to see. I miss you all, and look forward to seeing each of you at different times over the holidays. Thanksgiving means giving thanks, and I give thanks to God for each and every one of you.
