Full of THANKS and GIVING
We are now on Thanksgiving break. A brief break for the week from school and outside activities i.e. Scouts, ballet, etc... I am enjoying the respite. I have so much to be thankful for this year. Here is just some of my abundance: A sweet relationship with Jesus, my wonderful family and extended family, good health, a loving husband, a warm home, especially with the unusually chilly weather NC is having right now , homeschooling, the wonderful addition of Tapestry of Grace curriculum this year as well as a TOG co-op, dear friends, new friends and the endless opportunities that being an American bring every day...I just wanted to pause in the beginning of my Thanksgiving week to remember just a bit of what I have to be thankful for and also as my pastor said on Sunday to remember that there is a giving part of Thanksgiving, and to try my hardest to give of myself and my time and resources to those around me that are in need. My prayer is that I never become so complacent in my own comfortable life that I loose sight of the giving that God would have me to be part of in my every day world. I love this time of year! I just want to savor it and remember to have a truly thankful spirit. Happy ThanksGiving to all.
