A Season of Thanksgiving


Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada and for several years I’ve practiced what I call a Season of Thanksgiving.  A season that goes from Canadian Thanksgiving through Americian Thanksgiving.  We have much to be thankful for and it seems like thanksgiving just get’s lost between Halloween and Christmas.  Even when we are in the midst of our own dakness or dispair there’s something to be thankful for – for we worship a God who grants us grace and unconditional love every second of every day.  So I challenge you to join me in my thanksgiving journey.

Today I start off with a thanksgiving that just sort of fell into my lap last night because off facebook.  When we served in GA I was a member of a knitting group that meet every Friday evening to knit, crochet, (sometimes spin yarn) but always share together.  Share lifes joys and lifes sorrow.  We were an ecclectic group – I’m still not sure how to describe us other than a group of compassionate fiber loving friends.  I’m thankful for all this group of ladies did for me while I lived in GA but more specfically I’m grateful for the opportunity to reunite with them next weekend.

Every year at the agriculture center outside of Asheville there is a fiber festive that is miainly hand spun and hand dyed yarn.   Booths full of roving for spinning and felting and every tool imaginable to fiber loving people.   I’ve been a couple of times and ran into folks from my GA group but never have I stayed with them but this year that’s changing.  I’m going up Friday evening and coming back Saturday.  Im super excctied after the exhauusting weeks we’ve had arouund here it will be nice to just hang with some good friends and make some new friends.  

So today I’m thankful for fiber loving friends from GA!

Friday already?


Wow, it’s hard to believe that it’s Friday again!  But it is and that means its time once again to play Friday Five with my sisters over at RevGalBlogPals and our pals (either male or female).  So here goes another round!

Hey there gals and pals!
Happy Friday Five….and although I don’t have a theme for this Friday, I do have five questions for you to ponder upon:

1. If you could hear what someone is thinking for a day, who would you choose, and why?

2. If you were trapped in a tv show for a month, which show would you choose, and why?

3. If you could do any job in the world for a day, what would it be?

4. What are you loving right now?

5. Use these words in a sentence: bless, cheeseburger, chihauuaha, skipping, Georgia.

Have fun, and let us know that you played in the comments!

1.  If you could hear what someone is thinking for a day, who would you choose, and why?  

A little boy and his dog!

A little boy and his dog!

Well when my littleman was a baby I used to wonder what he’s thinking.  As he’s gotten older and sometimes I wonder if he will ever be quiet, I still think I would choose him.  I wonder what things he says when he and our dog are laying out in the yard together.  (And as a side, he really wanted a certain breed as mentioned in #5 but instead we  got a mutt and he’s loved a lot)!  I wonder what goes on in his mind or what doesn’t when he becomes distracted at school and when he uses animal sounds to cover his anxiety.  I wonder what goes on in his little but ever changing mind – I wonder if I could read his mind how might I be a better mom to him.

2.  If you were trapped in a tv show for a month, which show would you choose, and why?  I often watch Untold Stories of the ER and each time I wonder, why don’t they have a chaplain or I find myself saying to the doctor at the center of the incident, why don’t you also consult a chaplain or that persons pastor (or faith leader). So if I were able to caught in the show I could speak that thought and maybe help build a bridge between the medical world and the spiritual world.

3. If you could do any job in the world for a day, what would it be?  I’ve spent a LOT of time at a local Apple Store this week and if one thing I learnt is that there are am incredible amount of interesting people who come and go from an Apple Store.  Not to mention a staff that never seems to tire of smiling and being with each other.  I’d like to work at an Apple Store for a day….oh wait maybe not because I wouldn’t take home a penny of pay and would end up coming home with absolutely no money (in fact likely a lot less than I began my day with).

4.  What are you loving right now?  Gluten Free Fridays at my local Gigi’s Cupcakes and a group of girl friends to enjoy them with!

5.  Use these words in a sentence:  bless, cheeseburger, chihuahua, skipping, Georgia.  A littleman born in Georgia bless(es) my life with his love of cheeseburgers, chihuahuas and his ability to skip through life!

Ok so I stretched number five by Sayers blesses instead of simply bless but it’s all I had at 1:00 am.  Until next time my friends may The Lord continue to bless you!
