Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is Thanksgiving Day; the day in which the Pilgrims gave thanks to God for a bountiful harvest.

And afterwards the Lord sent them such seasonable showers, with interchange of fair warm weather as, through His blessing, caused a fruitful and liberal harvest, to their no small comfort and rejoicing. For which mercy, in time convenient, they also set apart a day of thanksgiving… By this time harvest was come, and instead of famine now God gave them plenty … for which they blessed God. – William Bradford, 1623

Pardon me for embracing my inner Ned Flanders, but remember the reason for this holiday. Give thanks to the Lord for his blessings and for yourselves and your families.

Life is short – far too short – live it graciously.

Oh, the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Eve dinner is still alive and well at our house.

Toast, popcorn, jelly beans, pretzel sticks, and ice cream!

      1. 73 degrees here in Cape Coral, FL. I’m doing Turkeyday with my brother and his daughter’s family. Just stepped outside for a look at the canal behind their house, where the kids fish just about every day. Hard life, but someone has to do it. {snark}

  1. Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you get some family time in around work and don’t worry too much. I’m making a tiny little turkey dinner tonight, we can celebrate both, right?
