Thankful Hearts

My heart is still full from last week's Thanksgiving celebration.  Kern and I arrived in Mississippi late Wednesday evening--just in time to fit in two Thanksgiving meals on Thursday.  We started out with lunch at my parents' house and ended with dinner in Brookhaven.  It was just the kind of day I had hoped for--full of family, relaxation and Gran Fran's chocolate pie.

My dad led us in prayer time and emphasized a point that had not previously crossed my mind.  He reminded us to be thankful for the CREATOR, not just the creation.  It is easy to list blessings--family, a home, food, friends, pets--and all of these are good.  However, it is imperative that we not forget the one "from whom all blessings flow"--God.


Another highlight of my Thanksgiving weekend was finally getting to meet this guy--Hayes!

Hayes is the son of Kern's best childhood friend--Chad and his amazing wife, Katie.  We had such a good time visiting with them and getting to play with Hayes.  Have you ever seen a sweeter face?


I love spending time with Katie--I wish we lived closer!



The boy picture--Hayes took this photo very seriously. 


As we close out the month of November and race full speed ahead towards the Christmas season, let us not forget the one "from whom all blessings flow."  After all, it's really all about Him.
