"We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully," Romans 12:6-8

The Holidays

We are blessed enough to be spending Thanksgiving at Disneyland! So very excited but could not stand the thought of missing a real thanksgiving meal, and most importantly thanksgiving treats! So last night we celebrated Thanksgiving as a family, turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, topped off with pumpkin cheesecake and apple crumble... AMAZING. We gathered around the table, saying what we are most thankful for and giving praise to God for all our blessings. In our house Christmas festivities can not start until the day after Thanksgiving. This year there was a loop-hole... we celebrated Thanksgiving five days early!! Today I was blessed with an evening of decorating our home for the first time with my husband. We then stuffed ourselves with left-overs from last nights meal and topped the night off with Elf. I am such a blessed woman and so very very excited for this Christmas season!

 food and sparkling cider... amazing!
