Thanksgiving was weird this year, wasn’t it? Our plans weren’t finalized until the day before and were indirectly affected by the virus.
I made a conscious effort to enjoy the things I usually enjoy when hosting – preparing and setting everything up for the meal, eating Derby pie and having leftovers to enjoy!
We hosted Paul’s family this year, and I was happy that my parents were able to join us too! They drove down from Tennessee and spent the day with us. It was definitely nice to have mom’s help in the kitchen, and I was so grateful for the opportunity to host my parents for a holiday. We cherish the time we’re able to spend together!
The day wasn’t perfect and there were certainly elements of it that I wished were different. I bet some of you feel the same about your own Thanksgiving Day events.
After the meal, we gathered around the piano and sang a few songs from the hymnal. I began with “Great is Thy Faithfulness” and it was the perfect reminder that we could never praise God enough for who He is.
No matter our circumstances, there is always reason to praise and to be thankful because God’s faithfulness is so great! You weren’t able to participate in our Thanksgiving Day session around the piano, so I’ll invite you to join me here and let’s worship together with the video below.
Other than that, November was a month of simple joys and of looking for things to celebrate. I’m very happy that December is here, and with it, all the joy of the season that is not altered by circumstances!
