I am blessed!

The pies are cooling on the counter...
The cranberries have just finished popping open...
The bread for stuffing has been cut, toasted and prepped...
The turkey is FINALLY defrosted and waiting...
The pumpkin bread has already been cut and "taste-tested"...
The table is set, the silver polished...
It's almost time.

Time to stop and really remember how blessed I am. How I have a home, family, friends, a great church, an Emmaus community, and many more "things" than I need.

But it's not just the "things" and the people who are a blessing to me. It's the relationship I have with God - the big Guy.

You've given me joy,
You've given me love,

You give me strength when I want to give up.
You came from heaven to rescue my soul.
You are the reason I know,
I know... I am blessed, I am blessed
From when I rise up in the morning,
'Till I lay my head to rest,
And I feel You near me,
You soothe me when I'm weary.
Oh, Lord,
For all the worst and all the best,
I am blessed.

- Rachel Lampa

That's all... nothing else... I just wanted to be thankful for a moment...

from our home to yours - may you have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!

Hey! That song is a good one to think about as we celebrate and give thanks for all that with which we've been blessed. Ha-side note, "Blessed" is one song on my hard drive thanks to a "One Free Download" offer. :) Thought you might get a kick out of that. Later.
