"Thanksgiving Day for many of us is a time to gather with family and friends around the dinner
table feasting on turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole,
creamed sweet corn, freshly made cranberry sauce, homemade yeast rolls, apple pie, pumpkin
pie, and cherry pie. Oh, what a feast of food!
However, around the table we not only feast on food, we feast on conversation! We share together what is happening currently, in our lives, the struggles and celebrations. The rich conversations, as well, bring up past remembrances of Thanksgivings with family and friends that are no longer with us. “Do you remember when Grandma forgot to turn the oven on? It was Grandpa that noticed the oven was not on one hour later.”, laughter fills the room. Tender and loving memories of our spiritual ancestors that taught us, witnessed to us, and encouraged us in our faith. May you continue the circle with witnessing your faith to the younger generations. Someday the younger ones will be sharing stories about you.
My prayer for you on Thanksgiving Day is that your table be filled with scrumptious food, lively conversations, and prayers of thanksgiving!
In Christ love,
