When October rolled into November, I wasn’t sure if we would be having a real Thanksgiving celebration this year.
I am so thankful to be proven wrong.
I could not have asked for a better Thanksgiving this year. Not only was Gigi feeling well enough to participate, but she had all her children and their spouses and children under one roof. (And my parents got to join in with the fun!) I really don’t think we’ve had everyone together like that…well…ever.
Leading up to Thanksgiving, the kids and I learned about some hymns of Thanksgiving. One of them has followed me this week, as I have been reminded
tune my heart to sing thy grace;
call for songs of loudest praise.
sung by flaming tongues above.
mount of thy redeeming love.
Here I raise mine Ebenezer;
hither by thy help I’m come;
safely to arrive at home.
wandering from the fold of God;
interposed his precious blood.
O to grace how great a debtor
daily I’m constrained to be!
bind my wandering heart to thee.
prone to leave the God I love;
seal it for thy courts above.
