November Dawns

Amazingly, October is over and it is now the most wonderful time of the year.

Yes, it is the Thanksgiving season!

One of my favorite holidays just because it is about giving thanks to our creator, God, for all of the blessings we have received during the past year.

A moment, a day, to pause and think about the things we've been given that we really don't deserve. That really is the essence of grace, isn't it?

Yeah--there are a few days till Thanksgiving--but with the too soon passing of October the spiral down toward the end of the year really begins to pick up speed. Veteran's Day, then Thanksgiving and into December with the horrific rush of activity and parties until we crash into Christmas and then dance our way into the New Year. I'm exhausted thinking about it.

Halloween was fun, but it is over. Makayla played her part well and putup with the little costume we make her wear every year. She is cute with the little pointed hat and dress we make her wear.

Well, good morning November and the Thanksgiving season and good-bye to October and Halloween.

Take a deep breath and enjoy the moment while I bring on the turkeys.

Remember, if you can't soar with eagles, you can run with the turkeys.
