By his hands we are fed, give us Lord our daily bread!
Happy Thanksgiving to all you grocery lovers! What an extraordinary day it is going to be. We will be having quite a feast prepared by lots of beautiful loved ones. We have a full-size gathering of family and friends to help celebrate this magnificent holiday.
Today will be a day we will give thanks for all our many blessings. We will gather around the table with the people we love, and say our blessing. The blessing of the food is part of the ritual of breaking bread together. We will take a moment to remember those who are no longer with us; we will give thanks for our health, for the food we’re about to receive and for the hands that have prepared it. Then we will become vultures and eat like there is no tomorrow. I simply can’t wait! Our food is a traditional Thanksgiving meal, but we have oodles of it! We will have Turkey, Ham, Cornbread Dressing, Rice Dressing, Mac & Cheese, Collard Greens, Eggplant Casserole, Squash Casserole, Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Corn Casserole, Deviled Eggs, Sweet Potato Casserole and Cranberry Sauce. Our dessert table will resemble something like a “Bakery” with all types of cakes, pies and cookies. It is going to be a “Get In My Belly Good” kind of day! We will post pictures this afternoon, if we are able to move!
We hope that all of you have a beautiful holiday and take pleasure in the time with your family and friends. Give Thanks for what you do and do not have. There is no right or wrong way to give thanks; truly the only requirement is thankful hearts and a yearning to be found worthy.
