The leftover turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and more fills the fridge.
Pies and cookies line the buffet table ready to be eaten as soon as our stomachs can hold another bit of food.
Bodies of friends lay asleep in the living room buried under blankets, pillows, and other remnants of last night’s sleepover.
I sit at my kitchen table…
How gracious is our God!
Awesome God, I can’t help but pause and bring you thanks and praise for this day.
For a new day to be alive and live in you.
For an amazing time of worship this morning with Your Family, focusing us as we began this day of giving thanks.
For beautiful friends to spend time with and celebrate with this week.
For big meals… and small meals… reminders of your provision.
For a house and food and family.
For grace… freedom… life.
For the fact that as I begin to “count my blessings,” even just in today,… I suddenly realize, I can’t count that high!
I give you thanks.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
