Gobble Gobble!!

It's the week of Thanksgiving!! I do love Thanksgiving because I am reminded of all the things that I have in my life to be Thankful for! Not that we are not Thankful everyday, but Thanksgiving is just special! Our family spends the day at the Lebanon Rescue Mission, the kids get to serve the meal to those that come in and they love to do this, after they are done eating, the shelter guests then return the favor and serve us! It has been such a blessing to be part of that and I am Thankful that we are able to have this as part of our family tradition. In the evening we attend a celebration at a dear friends home, this family invited us to be part of their Thanksgiving the first year we came to this church and since then we have attended each year, it is so nice to be part of the Family of God because no matter where we are, family is near!! One of the things we do each night before we pray with the kiddos is ask them Happy/Sad/Thankful about their day, so no matter how lousy you think your day has been you can always find a happy/sad/thankful in it!! I challenge you to try this each evening!!
