So thankful to have had loved ones gathered around our table to celebrate Thanksgiving with us.
So thankful, too, for the loved ones who weren't able to join us...each was sorely missed.
So thankful for the warm glow of the beautiful beeswax candles that graced our table.
Thank you, Mary!
So thankful for my cooking partner...not so thankful that her glasses broke last Wednesday. She sure is cute, huh? :)
So thankful for the opportunity to express our thanks to God for his abundant goodness to us!
In case you missed it, I shared the "how to" here.
So thankful for AnnaLynn's help at the PHS Yuletide Bazaar on Saturday (and that we took home a lot less than what we brought with us!). Sales were brisk! We practically sold out of soap and flower pins! Who knew peppermint soap was so popular? We didn't, but we do now. ;)
So thankful to bump into friends from long, long ago who were shopping at the bazaar (happy tears). Time flies. So thankful for sweet memories. :)
So, so thankful for the arrival of the Advent season...
...the lighting of candles and the reading of the Word.
So thankful for tradition -- those things we do that help us to remember!
When I think of Christmas Eves, Christmas feasts, Christmas songs, and Christmas stories, I know that they do not represent a short and transient gladness. Instead, they speak of a joy unspeakable and full of glory. God loved the world and sent His Son. Whosoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life. That is Christmas joy. That is the Christmas spirit.
