Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Can you believe it?! Oh how we love Thanksgiving here! I am so excited to eat ham, turkey, oh and let’s not forget the tamales!
As I write this we are currently creeping along the interstate headed down to Phoenix, AZ. We’ll be spending the week with my in-loves and brothers-in-law, along with my new, beautiful, wonderful niece! It will be my Father-in-law’s first time meeting Hirving, so I’m thrilled.
I’m not a blogger who has like, The 100 best Thanksgiving Traditions, or a to-die for recipe that will just transform your Thanksgiving meal. Instead I come to you today, urging you, in spite of all the work, the clean up, the talk, the food, the decor, and other things that accompany such a time, to not lose sight of such a significant holiday. 400 years ago, God called a small group of people to America to establish a colony that only partially survived their first year on American soil. They fought against great odds, but ultimately succeeded, and we dwell in an incredible country, because of a small minority, who stepped out in faith, obeyed God and gave thanks to God for His divine provision and providence.
We cannot stop giving thanks to God. Everything that is on this earth is owned by God, but the one thing God doesn’t own, but will always deserve, is our thankfulness (Psalm 50.) Even in poverty, Americans live better than almost any other people group in any other country. That alone is something to be extremely grateful for.
But putting aside the wealth, prosperity, and blessings that come from living in this country, we cannot forget the first, and most important thing to be thankful for: Jesus and the cross. We can never cease to be thankful for God who sent His Son, in a humble state to walk among us, point us to the Father and ultimately to die a horrible death for the sake of our souls so we can say, “no” to sin and, “yes” to God.
No matter how wonderful or awful our physical condition may be, the condition of our soul is the most important thing. So during this beautiful yet busy holiday, don’t forget Jesus! Don’t stop being thankful for the greatness, grace, mercy, generosity, and love of God! 💖
Before we go and change into something a bit stretcher and more accommodating for our growing bellies (food babies only 😂) KD and I want to share some very simple chic-harvest looks for your last minute decorating before Thanksgiving Day.
Simple pine cones + spray paint, small faux pumpkins, autumn foliage, and candles = simple, chic, and sweet thanksgiving readiness! Simple ways to place bits of fall all over your home. Every time you look upon a pine cone or see a warm cozy candle burning brightly in your home, remember to give thanks to God for His providence and provision in your own life. 🧡
So before we say goodbye until after this holiday, we just want you to know how thankful we are to each one of you for your support, love, and readership as we grow as a team and get to know you better. We are so grateful for you!
