Today I am taking a half day at work, followed by a 4-day weekend. Huzzah.
My nephew Tim is driving in today from Crawfordsville, Indiana, and so is daughter #1 from Columbia. I will be in the kitchen cooking–terra incognita, for sure. But maybe we will have a dance party.
As you are celebrating Thanksgiving with your family and friends tomorrow, keep in mind what Joyce Meyer says: “Go home, and let all your relatives off the potter’s wheel. You are not the potter!”
Relax. Have a great day. Watch Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987)
or Miracle on 34th Street (1947).
Count your blessings. Life is good.
Glorious things of thee are spoken,
Zion, city of our God!
He, whose Word cannot be broken,
Formed thee for His own abode;
On the Rock of Ages founded,
What can shake thy sure repose?
With salvation’s walls surrounded,
Thou mayst smile at all thy foes.
–John Newton, Anglican Hymn
