(1 Thes. 5:16 Rejoice evermore.)
Every Thanksgiving in my recent years, I've been guilty of something. You know what it is? Complaining. Thanksgiving is just a lot of work; right?! There's the rolls, the turkey, the mashed potatoes, the sweet potatoes, the green beans, the corn, the drinks, the desserts, the cleaning, the cooking, the stress; oh my! It's just so easy to forget what really matters. It's easy to complain while you're preparing a meal for an army; and every little thing goes wrong. Just a few hours ago we discovered that the turkey in our fridge was, (ahem) dripping. And not only was is dripping. But it was dripping all over our eggs... So yeah. I think most will understand what I'm talking about. All these little things go wrong, and everything is just totally crazy... How can anyone find the time to slow down and be truly thankful? I don't have all the answers. But the Lord has been working on my heart; and you know what? I'm too blessed to be stressed. Yes, we will probably have some catastrophic incident tomorrow that I'll have to clean up, or something won't cook right, or a particular family member will be being difficult... But no; I don't have to choose stress over joy. I want to smile at the mashed potatoes on the wall (yes, it's happened). I want to enjoy the blessing and company of family, even if some of them are trying at times. I want to truly give thanks to God in my heart, in my words, and in my actions. I want to mentally and spiritually slow myself down before I let stress replace joy. Yes, I have a lot to do tomorrow; but no, I don't have to sacrifice my joy and peace on the altar of... a turkey; or anything else! Whoever you are reading this; I encourage you to really celebrate this day for what it is. Whether you'll be in a family setting, a work setting, or anything else; don't replace joy with stress. Be thankful for the little mishaps, be joyful over the blessings that God has poured over you, let the "mashed potatoes on the wall" go; and find Jesus in the midst of all of the craziness of your life. Will it be an easy task? No. But it will be oh-so worth it!

Thanksgiving with my new fam😁
It was my mom-in-law's first thanksgiving here in the US, so it was a last minute decision to have a traditional thanksgiving dinner. Never in my life have I made so many different foods at once;; but three hours of cooking was the least I could do for all the help, love, and prayer she poured on our family this year.
As a new family dynamic we have our bumps but looking back there is only so many things to be grateful for..
Giving Thanks to God on this early Thanks Giving family dinner! .
