As mentioned last week, we’re doing a change of pace this month with our feature blog articles. Instead of the usual ministry/tech focus, we’re giving thanks for something each week, using the #Gratituesday Twitter hashtag, and encouraging you to do the same.
This week: What’s your favorite thanksgiving memory?
For me it would have to be Thanksgiving 2000. Ever since we got married, my wife, Jennifer, and I have been doing 2 Thanksgivings each year – lunch with her family and dinner with my family. (Yes, that’s a lot of turkey and pie for one day. The sacrifices we make for family. 😉 ) At both meals, we waited until the entire family was gathered around for the Thanksgiving prayer, and during the prayer we surprised everyone by thanking God for the new baby we were expecting, our first.
How about you? What’s your favorite Thanksgiving memory?[image by merci]
