Holiday blessings and Gloria goes granola

This year we enjoyed being able to spend Thanksgiving Day with my husband’s family in Ohio. The ladies did an excellent job preparing a hearty Thanksgiving meal of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, salad, and of course, Mom’s pumpkin pie.

There are so many things that have filled me with joy and given me reason to be thankful.  Primarily I stand in awe and gratitude to God for sending Jesus, the Savior of mankind. With Jesus we have a reason and purpose to go on in life, even when facing hardships and trials. And yes, we do have an extra reason to rejoice this Christmas season with a newborn son in the house!
