Thanksgiving Weekend!

24 Nov

I hope you all had a fabulous holiday. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite weekends! It’s a wonderful time to be together as a family and remember all of the Lord’s wonderful blessings and the surprising, precious moments that He blesses us with each year. We had a specific time after dinner where mom got out a notebook and we all mentioned at least one blessing we were thankful for and a desire we hope to see in our life or in the life of another in the year to come. We ate, laughed, talked, and shared to our heart’s content! It was a great afternoon!

Our family has seen that God has been very good this past year even in the midst of trials and hardship. His glory has been seen and His goodness, mercy, and grace has far outweighed that of any earthly pleasure!
Then, of course, the celebration continued on black Friday. My brothers and I always look forward to joining the thousands of shoppers looking for good deals. We got up at 3:30AM this year and had a blast together making special and fun memories!

Sadie waiting for everyone to arrive!

It really was a gorgeous day especially with all the leaves blowing in the wind!

    Looks like y’all had a great time! Isn’t it so nice to be able to look back at all the Lord has done for you and say “God has been good”?

    We also went shopping on “black Friday” but we didn’t get up near as early and we tried to steer clear of the crowds. It was fun though!
