When I got home tonight, Mackenzie and I cuddled and watched a movie. then she filled me in on her day saying she had a great Thanksgiving too... I am looking forward to spending the day tomorrow with both Adam and Mackenzie!
1 Cronicles 29:11-13 "Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name." I was challenged by this verse today to not just give thanks for what we have this Thanksgiving, but give thanks for who HE is, and HIS many attributes. When I praise Him and give Him thanks for who He is, it is then, that I can praise Him for my sufferings... because He is omnipresent, omnipotent... He is omniscient.
Thanksgiving has been our favorite family holiday... for those of you who know Adam and I well, you know how much Adam and I love to cook and spending time together. Last Thanksgiving was probably my favorite holiday ever. We spent the day just the three of us, cooking, playing games, and just hanging out. These are some pictures from our Thanksgiving last year...
Mackenzie made this poster of all the things she was thankful for that year
Adam is an amazing pie maker... He made 3 pies last year... and yes, just for the 3 of us.
Mackenzie made herself into a turkey with scraps of things around the house, she is so creative

Last year in North Carolina, it was 70 degrees so we sat on our front porch drinking sweet tea on Thanksgiving day... such a wonderful memory.
Our Thanksgiving may have looked a whole lot different this year, but the love that we share has only grown deeper and stronger, and that is what I am most thankful for this Thanksgiving... the love that has grown between the 3 of us. I love my family.
Happy Thanksgivng from my family to yours.
