I certainly didn't plan a blog break, but it happened. It's been a week since I last sat down and asked each of you what Thanksgiving side dish are you? What fun it was to see how many of us were similar and how many were different! I had a very busy week last week and I am sure God wanted me to tend to my tasks at hand. Between work and home I had a lot on my plate. A sense of accomplishment getting those tasks completed. Cleaning our and re-stocking the pantry. Cleaning out the fridge! YIKES... I do believe some of the food containers in the back of the fridge could be deemed "science experiments!" Picking up the last of the fallen leaves, buttoning up the house for a long winter's nap. All those things I look forward to doing at this time of year. I know call me crazy! I also love shopping at the grocery the week before Thanksgiving. Stocks, soups, canned pumpkin, Pepperidge Farms stuffing etc. All those items I can use during the cold winter months! I don't host Thanksgiving... so perhaps it's a bit less stressful for me as I shop for those staples that fill the winter pantry.
As I reflect on the Thanksgiving holiday and the many things I am thankful for... I am thanking God for giving me a full pantry and fridge. That I have a roof over my head and a warm bed. My heart aches for those who are lonely, homeless and hungry. I know the Lord loves them... Do not forget them dear friends. Donate your time at a soup kitchen, help clothe a child and provide a Christmas gift for them, help fill a Thanksgiving basket at your church... but most importantly, lift them up in prayer!
Oh give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. ~ Psalm 107:1
