Thanksgiving Day at the Harrison House in South Alabama-5 a.m. when the alarm sounded-It was painful. I went straight to the kitchen to set the oven & turn on the flame to perk the coffee. Yes, I said "perk" the coffee. I am back to perking coffee again. At this early hour I was having serious self doubting moments-doubting my sanity for setting this plan in motion and doubting my physical ability to get it done. No, I am not THE COOK today. I'm only a 'contributor'..preparing two simple dishes to pitch in with the others at our [newest] daughter in law's Thanksgiving gathering . She and our [oldest] son have only been married a year and it was her choice to have everyone for this feast of food day.
I know my blog readers/followers are working with a list, a schedule with 'things to do' and 'places to be' so I will keep this early Turkey Day post short and sweet.
For those who may be wondering how we are managing to be Thankful in this season of Thankfulness...relax, that is not an issue.
I cannot be less than thankful...after all I serve a Savior who died for me and that same God placed a sweetheart for life alongside me who has faithfully without wavering devoted himself to me and our children for more than 53 years.
For many years as I pray I ask God to keep my heart tender..and thankful. I truly believe If I have that tender, thankful heart the Holy spirit will always be able to reach me breaking through any self imposed distance or coldness I might be dealing with.
For this special day I pray for each of you much joy, many loved ones around you and a heart full of peace, compassion and thankfulness. Enjoy-Let's not waste a minute of this day God has given us.
Looking Forward ~
