Thanksgiving is a time of quiet reflection upon the past and an annual reminder that God has again been ever so faithful. The solid and simple things of life are brought into clear focus, so much so that everything else fades into insignificance.
Thanksgiving is a holiday specifically set aside for the purpose of
thanking God for His provisions and blessings. It may be the oldest,
continually celebrated holiday in America.
Much of the food served at modern Thanksgiving dinners includes items
from the very first celebration: turkey, ham, dressing, potatoes,
numerous other vegetables, breads and puddings.
Initially this meal was held to thank God for the blessings of a good crop, having food for the winter.
Thanksgiving is a very family oriented holiday. Relatives often travel
great distances to be with each other to celebrate. Thanksgiving is the
busiest travel time of the entire year. It's also the official start of the holiday season.
What are your plans for this Thanksgiving?
May your Thanksgiving be a time of joy and blessings.
Traditions. Does your family have traditions for the holidays? Our
family has enjoyed sweet family time with my in laws for as long as I
have been married. When my hubbys
Mom passed away, she left behind memories
of family gatherings around her big table. Lots of laughter, conversations, and good food were shared by all.
So we have started our own family traditions. I have auditioned a November table as a jump start for
the Holiday season.
I love to bring out the Johnson Brothers china.

There is nothing like the warmth of the Holiday season, setting the mood to radiate love around the table.
Are you ready for the Holidays?? Thanksgiving is only two weeks away!
