The Day Before Thanksgiving

It's the day before Thanksgiving. The house is full of food. The kids are out of school. There are many hours of cooking stretched out before me---stuffing, turkey, potatoes and yams.  In the morning, family and friends are due to arrive and contribute to the cooking frenzy.
This year, we plan to barbecue our turkey on the grill outside. I think it will be a great adventure. First, I plan to brine it with lemons, oranges, and herbs.  My daughter in law will roast the brussel sprouts and make pumpkin cheese cake. My husband and son always make a broccoli dish. Thanksgiving is a great family and friend day, and I'm thankful for the love God has brought into my life.
Jesus, thank you for the gift of family and friends. Thank you that you give us opportunities to be together and to love each other. Thank you for feeding us. You delight in us and take pleasure in Your children, giving them good things, thank you.
Say That Again,  You delight in me, You love me! Jesus, I thank You.
