I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify Him with thanksgiving.”  Psalm 69:30

Let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and tell of His deeds in songs of joy.”  Psalm 107:22

Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7

“We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks, for your name is near.” Psalm 75:1

“Never let us neglect thanksgiving…As the smiling flowers gratefully reflect in their lovely colours the various constituents of the solar ray, so should gratitude spring up in our hearts after the smiles of God’s providence….We should praise God again and again. Stinted gratitude is ingratitude. For infinite goodness there should be measureless thanks. Faith promises redoubled praise for greatly needed and signal deliverances. For that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare. God is at hand to answer and do wonders—adore we then the present Deity. We sing not of a hidden God, who sleeps and leaves the church to her fate, but of one who ever in our darkest days is most near, a very present help in trouble. “Near is his name.” Glory be unto the Lord, whose perpetual deeds of grace and majesty are the sure tokens of his being with us always, even unto the ends of the world.” Charles Spurgoen, Treasury of David

We had a great Thanksgiving!  Obviously it was our first as a family of three … and it was so fun! We had brunch in the morning at my parents & dinner at Jordan’s.  It is so wonderful to have both of our families so close!  They are a joy.  Hudson has such wonderful grandparents AND great-grandparents!  Not to mention everyone else! What a neat blessing to get to see so many generations in one room!

Here are a few photos of our little turkey … for whom we are so very thankful.

How fun would it be if his eyes stay that blue!?

It was a long day = a little stressful.

Watching the Cowboys.  I know … he looks just like his daddy.  I love it!

Happy to be home, in his jammies, & headed for bed.

Advent has begun!  We’ve got our Christmas decor up!  I love love love this time of year.  More on that later … Until then.

Much love.
