Thanksgiving Days

How glorious is our God! My husband and I have both been on vacation this week and have had a blast just enjoying each other and our time off. Sunday was his birthday, but I get the gift. God has blessed me with the most amazing, godly husband. If there were ever a picture of Christ in a husband - I am married to him. Kenny shows me the love and attitude of Christ in so many ways every single day.

Yesterday we spent the day running errands and catching up on household stuff. But today . . . we decorated for Christmas!!! I know that it is not even Thanksgiving, but we could not help ourselves. It was snowing outside and it will be our first Christmas in our new home. We haven't finished decorating and we won't put the tree up for a couple weeks, but we have a good start. Wanna see?

Our women's bible study was supposed to meet tonight, but between the non-stop snow and the potential for ice on the roads, I canceled for the evening. And so - I will be spending this evening with my amazing husband, a good book, and some of my favorite coffee. I am not a big fan of peppermint, but Millstone's Peppermint coffee is totally incredible and only available at Christmas. Oh the choices - Starbucks Sumatra or Millstone Peppermint . . .

Lord, I thank you for the many gifts in our lives. I thank you for the gift of my husband and my children. I thank you for the gift of a home and for the holidays. I thank you for the gifts of Christmas and salvation. I thank you for the small things like coffee, Christmas decorations and snow. I thank you for time off work to be with my husband. I thank you that you alone are Lord and that you love me. Father - I love you too. Amen.

Humbly His Daughter,

I have to tell you Kim, that as much as I like your Christmas decorations, and especially your Nativity set, I must confess that I am more intrigued by the books on your bookshelf!!! I am wondering what books are on the shelf, how many of them am I familiar with, is there a Ted Dekker or an A.W. Tozer there, what have you read, want to read, and are reading now...you get the idea. I, too, am a bibliophile.
