Thanksgiving with Minions ,)

Holy cow or Sacred turkey!!
I’m very happy to report that my kids & I have been working this afternoon on our Thanksgiving meal for tomorrow & I have never been this well prepared! We have a traditional meal for tomorrow for some wonderful guests & I sincerely hope that we are a blessing to our guests! In the meantime, I have to give out a MASSIVE shoutout to my kids for all of their help!!!! They’re making the cranberry sauce, pecan pie, sweet potatoes, Apple pastries, setting the table, organizing the serving platters & lots more! I never knew Thanksgiving could be such family fun! YAHOOO!!!! If the turkey comes out well, we are most certainly on the cusp of Jesus’ Second Coming, so I hope you’re ready ,)
I’m very thankful to my kids for their invaluable help this year & more so to God for such an extravagant & continuous display of Genuine Love – happy Thanksgiving dear friend!
Thank you so much for reading my blog! 🙂

wisdom from my husband

 My husband & I are somewhat different.  While we agree upon our goals & values, we don’t always see things in the same way, nor do we always take the same path to our goals.  Early in our marriage, when he was still an engineer, we were talking about my efforts to hang wallpaper (which were “sketchy”).  He was unhappy about how my wallpaper project had turned out because the pattern was slanted rather than perpendicular as it should have been.  He began to ask my about the process I went through to hang the wallpaper & what I had done to properly prepare for a successful project.  He gave me this quote, “Proper prior planning prevents poor performance.”  I didn’t really care for the the cliche approach & it took me awhile to think through what he was trying to say – even though I didn’t like to admit it, I knew that he was right.  This lesson is still being worked through my life even after almost 20 years of marriage.

What is even more breathtaking to me is when I consider that God is the Master Designer & Planner.  God is working in our lives to prepare & refine us, growing & challenging us not only for today’s necessities but also for tomorrow’s successes 🙂
