..Let us come before Him with Thanksgiving..

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
Let us shout aloud to the Rock of our Salvation!
Let us come before him with thanksgiving 
and extol him with music and song.
For the LORD is the great God,
the great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth,
 and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The sea is his, for he made it, 
and his hands formed the dry land.

Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker,
for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.

psalm 95:1-7

I hope you all have a beautiful Thanksgiving, overflowing with love, laughter, family, friends, and feasting! 
It's our fifth Thanksgiving in Colorado (well fourth if the one we spent eating a buffet in Mexico on our Honeymoon doesn't count), and we are celebrating our third-annual "orphan" dinner with some of our closest friends and their families who generously invite those of us without family nearby to their table. There's usually about 15-20 of us that gather together, potluck style, and feast to our heart's content, followed by a round of nerf football or frisbee. During dinner we go around the table sharing something we are thankful for that starts with the first letter of our names...

This year, I am so thankful for our home away from home; for our health; for the hope we have in Jesus; for His love that provides for all our needs; and for happiness that comes from simply being thankful for all we have been given.

 Well, the parade is over so into the kitchen I go!
I'm going to make our "famous" caramelized roasted brussel sprouts- tossing in some butternut squash and carrots this year- and possibly a sweet potato & apple gratin if it turns out as planned. 

Have a lovely day friends,
I'm truly thankful for each and every one of you!
