Today would be a day of praise and worship with my other family ... my church family. I was able to do some cooking for them ... nothing like years past ... but all was good. I have too many blessings to allow the enemy to make me focus on any thing less. This is the first year I will share Thanksgiving with my 'saved' husband. I have so many people who love me at church and desire to spend the day with us, because we are part of their family. We did and it was great! All the food ... WOW!
Life is way too short to focus on the 'what nots' ... the 'what ifs' ... the 'why me's' ... the 'how come's'! There are too many people out there suffering more than we could ever imagine. Yes, our pain is real and cutting because it is happening to us, but if you turn it around and look at what you do have, then life is so much brighter. It is a choice!
I have to admit though that I could not get through the day without seeing some of my family. After we left church, we drove to my sister's house. She was having her family and my other sister's family at her house for dinner. We got there right before they were getting ready to eat. We were able to share the blessing with them, and we even munched here and there. You always have room for more.
I will have all my family together the Saturday after Christmas. I can wait until then!
I hope you had a truly blessed Thanksgiving.
