The Grilled Thanksgiving Turkey

We were certain that our turkey would take at least 3 hours to grill, so we promptly got it on the barbecue in record time this morning. My husband kept a close eye on the temp and he continued to comment that the barbecue was not hot enough, so he decided to heat it up a bit. After about 2 hours I went outside to check on our turkey and much to my surprise our bird was totally done, perfect to be exact!  We were not ready for our turkey to be done!
I turned the burners down to warm and wrapped him up in foil, and hoped for the best.
When it was time for dinner and my son started to carve the turkey, he commented on how tender it was. When we started to eat it, there were plenty of comments on how good it was! Thankfully, the long wait on the grill did not dry it out.
We had a lovely Thanksgiving Day, with the perfect grilled Thanksgiving turkey. We had a delightful meal, great family and friends, and more memories created. It was a day full of blessing.
I am thankful for days like today. It reminds me of the verse in Colossians 2:7

Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness,

Jesus, Say That Again, You will grow my roots down into You and You will build  me deep into  You. Then my faith will be strong in Your truth, and I will overflow with thankfulness in You.
