I did not put up the big tree this year, because I ran out of time. Oh, well it is not like I am expecting Santa to bring me gifts. It not like I have small children at home, that will be disappointed. Whatever I do it is for my enjoyment. I like to decorate during the holidays, even if there is not one gift under the under tree..
Having Joy and having Faith go together, in that regards. I have faith in God, so I have joy even though I have never seen him.
I normally make a lot of desserts for the holidays, but I was asked only to make a pie. I was instructed to only one pie for the church and one a pie for the family dinner.
Of course, I expect to have more than just pie for the Thanksgiving Dinner. I expect to see a turkey, a ham with some greens, mashed potatoes, stuffing with a lot of desserts. The family has tradition has to be up held, there has to be lots of food. It not about eating a lot of food, it about be able to share a meal.
Sunday, the church that I attend took over eighty people off the street, took them somewhere that they could have a bath and gave them fresh clothing. We at the church also prepared a large meal for them after the church service. That was a welcome to God’s house. We would not expect less when it comes to welcoming the family.
This Thanksgiving I will miss my son, who is serving overseas, and a very special aunt who we always shared this day with.
Happy Thanksgiving, I hope there you enjoy the day with family and friends.
