Happy Thanksgiving

Village Squire Entertaining The New Minister - Edward Lamson Henry

The turkey is slow roasting, the smell spreading through the house.  Everyone is still snug in bed, savoring the chance to sleep in.

I have been thinking about the Pilgrims, who risked everything to come to a new world in order to have the freedom to worship the Lord differently than the way the official church was worshiping. I wonder if I would have that kind of courage.

We will be feasting today, and giving thanks for the abundant blessings we have been given,

God's Word
Our home
Two vehicles
3 horses
2 dogs
1 cat
Comfy beds
Warm blankets
Shoes - more than one pair

The list of course could go on and on...

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your lovely family! I'm using your method of roasting my turkey -- and it is turning out beautifully! Thanks so much for posting it last year. I used it then and again this year!! Mmmmm good!

We're going to my brother and sil's house, so I don't have the smell of turkey roasting in my house today. I'm looking forward to it though. Have a wonderful day with your family!

And how that list goes on and on!
Hope your day was full of joy and blessing!


  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
