We're a day late, but Happy Thanksgiving all the same!! Ours was a little different than we had planned, but when it ended, we still had just as many reasons for gratitude to our Father. He never, ever fails to give us our daily bread!
We surely miss our family and friends, and, Family, we were so glad to be able to spend a few minutes on the webcam with most of you! Love from Texas.
We started the week last Sunday morning with a Scripture reading from Matthew 25. This passage stuck in my mind, and I purposed to try to be Jesus to my family in new and deliberate ways this week. Little did I know, I would actually be on the receiving end.
Sebastian is very compassionate about Micah's jaw problems, and if you mention it to him, he will say, "Ow, Daddy?" and point to his cheeks. After putting Thomas down for a nap yesterday, I came into the living room to see that Sebastian had laid out some of his very favorite books for his dad (even though he was currently resting). I found him playing patiently and quietly by the couch and "reading" to himself.
Then Jesus rang the doorbell. Well, you know what I mean. :) We opened the front door last night to see kind neighbors offering us what they called "Thanksgiving in a Box." This wasn't dry, crusty daily bread. This daily bread was a feast.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
