A glimpse of "Thanksgiving past" ...

... as we gear up for "last minute prep" to make "Thanksgiving Now" happen!


Thought I'd take a break from blogging-as-usual and take a moment to (dare I say it?) "Focus on the Family" ... that would be MY family ... or at least this part of it: this photo of "the kids" I found earlier this week of a Thanksgiving Past ... (I'm guessing 1989.)

From left: son Jamie (the now Blackhawk crew chief enroute from Fort Campbell as we speak); son Brian (just got his G.E.D. and working in Kentucky where he'll spend Thanksgiving with his dad); niece Jennifer (coming down to join us for turkey tomorrow); and niece Christine (brand new mom-of-the-first-of-the-next-generation.)

How quickly they grow!

Whatever your family looks like, may this Thanksgiving be a time of blessing, joy and abundant love as we give thanks for all God's many gifts ... and pray that we might always remain both mindful and responsive to the needs of others!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Mitchell ... you're done, here buddy.

Move on. (Theological and/or political differences are welcome ... potshots at my family are not. Find somebody else's blog to bother.)
