My Week in Review



This picture sums up my Thanksgiving week. It was relaxing and peaceful. I loved visiting with all the relatives and stuffing myself for a solid two days. Isn't God good to create such delicious foods? I knew I had to stop when I found myself slicing into the pumpkin and the cherry pie for breakfast on Friday morning. I think this year I was very reflective about the blessings we have been given. When I have had an emotionally and physically tough year, I tend to grow the most spiritually. I am so thankful for many reasons, but especially for the good health Skip has experienced since his surgery. I know God never left our sides during the fearful and uncertain times. Skip is still experiencing some minor aches and pains, but he is doing fabulous in my book. He is an amazing man and I have seen him reach out to God for strength and wisdom so much lately. I just love him to pieces! I am also thankful for my children and the blessings that each of them are to me. Each child is so unique and talented in their own special way. I am so thankful for my church and church family. I think God has used BAF to impact this city in so many ways, and it seems to be just the beginning. I can't wait to post about our Grand Opening of the new building in a couple of months. Just watch out for all God is going to do through his people. I am thankful for my local friends, my email buddies, and my blog friends. All the encouragement, prayers, and love I've received is unbelievable. May God bless you all! My resting time is over as I am now going to go back to getting this house ready for sale this week. I decorated for Christmas early last week, so I can now just concentrate on the nitty gritty of making this house shine!

What beautifully expressed thanks. We are all so blessed because the very foundation of our blessings is the Lord.
Isn't it funny that there are so many of us in varying stages of moving. Boomama is moving in, you are getting ready to sell (I think there are others selling too) and I am getting ready to start packing up. We are still in that thirty day time period where the buyer can back out, but it seems foolish to wait to long to start filling cardboard boxes. So Instead of decorating this year, I'll be packing up. But hopefully next year I will make up for it.
Enjoy the day, and I'll pray your house sells quickly.

I'm so glad you had a good Thanksgiving. I'm getting out my Christmas things and remember Christmas pasts. I'm so thankful for all this year has brought me, even the not so good times and the waiting that God has placed before me. THere is no telling what this holiday season has for us. I just know that He is in control of all our new discoveries and new moves and new adventures. More importantly I'm thankful for the friendship that I've found with some awesome group of gals, namely you. Glad to be home and looking forward to sharing the Christmas season with all we love and cherish.

Susie,
You write so well. I enjoyed reading this. I am very thankful for Bay Area Fellowship also. I know God brought us to this city and church because he just knew what we needed.

A very touching post, Susie. We are all so blessed and just need to pause to take a look don't we? Thanks for sharing what you are thankful for!

Well for heavens sake, Susie. I go away for a few days and come back and you're selling the house! Ugh. That's got to be a challenge this time of year. I remember how spic and span it had to be all the time for the realtor who gives you 20 minutes notice he's bringing someone to look at it.

So it's nice that you took a minute to list your blessings. I know this was a tough year for you and Scott but look at all you got through. I'm still remembering the stay in the hospital.

And here's a tip. It's perfectly OK to have pie for breakfast. It is. I swear. Isn't it? Uh oh.

Barb said...

OK, Susie. I'm beyond embarrassed that your husband is asking you who Scott is.

Skip, I promise you it's just a mistake on my part. Sigh. Going to bed now.

I just watched a Thanksgiving show on the Food Network that said that the early settlers made many pies per week and that they were served at every meal. And that their breakfast staple was apple pie. If it was good enough for them...
