>I have a few quiet moments this morning. The last few, I’m sure, until after Thanksgiving festivities and the trip to pick up my big kids.
It occurs to me that Thanksgiving is the perfect kickoff to the holiday season. Who is there to thank but God? The day of thanksgiving to Him kind of calls my attention to His work in my life and begins a time of reflection upon what He has done for us all by sending His son, the birth we celebrate at Christmas.
So this year, I’m determined to see Thanksgiving as simply the beginning of a season of celebrating God’s blessings to me. Our Thanksgiving day will be full of commotion, food, laughter, noise, and fun…and of course Saints football. And I will celebrate the way God has lavished me with wonderful people, beautiful babies, happy moments, an amazing family, and so much more. I’ll kick it off on Thanksgiving day with a bang and continue to celebrate throughout the holidays.
I have so much joy, how can it all be properly celebrated in one day alone, or even two? It deserves a month or more, and so it will be.
