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!
