Because this Thanksgiving morning is so calm. The house is (mostly) clean and sparkling, with lights aglow and wassail on the stove and quiet music playing.
We had a beautiful cold front come through and woke up to sunshine and brisk temperatures. It won't be long before we gather around the table for a bountiful feast for lunch. The day will be slow paced and spent with family. This weekend will involve more time with family and friends and some Christmas celebrations. Right now I am in my chair enjoying the music and twinkling lights and scent of oranges and cloves wafting in from the kitchen. At 25 weeks pregnant, I am thankful to put my feet up for a few minutes and enjoy the simplicity of the moment, reflect and give thanks on day I love and look forward to each year, and rejoice in the beauty of a season that celebrates the birth of Savior who changed my life.
What a thought for this gorgeous Thanksgiving morning.
Christ is the Lord!
Today and every day we give Him honor, praise, and thanks.
Happy Thanksgiving Morning! Wishing you a blessed and beautiful day!
