A Thanksgiving

“I want to see beauty. In the ugly, in the sink, in the suffering, in the daily, 
in all the days before I die, the moments before I sleep.”  
Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare To Live Fully Right Where You Are

Today I am thankful for...

light Orlando breezes blowing humid
Chuck's chicken on the stove
colorful stamps from Isaac's youth
gifts from a friend
French anniversary dinner celebration
Our lovely dinner locale
God's grace to me, a sinner
book treasures discovered on dusty shelves
cheering husband & father-in-law in ping-pong
having the right coupon at checkout
absence of gator-sighting
anticipation of ice-cold gelati after dinner
chatting & phone call from Switzerland
Pre-dinner photo op
2 years & 1 day with new last name
knowing new niece & nephew in the flesh
God's provision for us through his people

"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
Colossians 3:17

What are you thankful for?
