Thankful

We celebrated Thanksgiving at our house with the five of us, Roy's parents, brother, and two nephews.  We had a delicious feast and yummy desserts!  We watched lots of football and just had a wonderfully, lazy day :)

On Friday, Roy's other brother and his wife and their two kiddos came down from Dallas and we had a second Thanksgiving dinner.  This time we spiced it up and had a Mexican feast!  Homemade beef enchiladas, rice, beans, queso, and guacamole.  Can I get a YUM?!

We had a great Thanksgiving holiday and are so blessed to have been able to share it with those we love.  I am so thankful to have Jesus as my Savior.  This past week I have really sat and reflected on how He sacrificed His Son for me.  It's so HUGE that I can hardly wrap my brain around it.  I wouldn't be willing to sacrifice my boys for anyone or anything...  Can you imagine?  Jesus has blessed my life with so much and I am forever thankful to Him.  My husband, my boys, my family, my girlfriends, my health, my home,...the list goes on and on...  As we enter the Christmas season, I just want to continue to remember why we celebrate and never lose sight of that :)

The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.  What can I give back to God for the blessings He's poured out on me?


Psalm 116:5, 12
