David and I spent Thanksgiving Day with his family at his younger sister’s home. She and her husband have a beautiful place outside of town, away from the noise and chaos of civilization – the perfect place to pause and reflect on our many blessings. I made a quick sweep with my camera while last minute preparations were being made for lunch. As we joined hands to offer thanks, I put down my camera and recorded the meal and the naps and the football and the love in my heart.
This morning we’re at my mother-in-law’s home, and things are quiet as we wait for a call from his
sisters. We’re not planning to join the Black Friday madness, but we have a friend who is organizing a huge estate sale, and we’re hoping for a private preview. I don’t know if I’ll take any pictures, but I’ll definitely have my heart recorder turned on – and I will be thankful.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless
his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. Psalm 100:4-5
