A Blessed Thanksgiving to You All

Dear Readers,

I just wanted to write and wish you all a happy Thanksgiving.  I hope it is blessed and can be a special time of remembering the Lord's goodness to you and your family, even during trials.  The Lord is good always, and worthy of our praise.

We will be celebrating Thanksgiving this week and have invited a few people to join our family.  The children very much want to dress up as pilgrims and indians, so they've been deciding what to wear and making special pilgrim hats and indian headdresses for the occasion.  Today we will be busy in the kitchen preparing food.  The older girls will be preparing many dishes, which is so different from when I had to make everything!   We will be having turkey, stuffing, gravy, homemade dinner rolls & popovers, garlicky bacon green beans, loaded fauxtato casserole, sauteed brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, apple crisp, and pumpkin cream cake.  Everything will be homemade from scratch, as that's the only way I do things (smiles).  My husband was surprised to see all the cream cheese in the refrigerator.

Here are some neat ideas that you may find useful for celebrating Thanksgiving.  I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving, and thank you to all of you who take the time to leave comments here, as it is a great encouragement to me.
O Lord, who clothes the lilies
And feeds the birds of the sky,
Who leads the lambs to pasture
And the deer to the waterside,
Who has multiplied loaves and fishes
And converted water to wine,
O Lord, come to our table,
As guest and giver, to dine.
