Over the river and through the woods...

Turkey gifts painted and glossed. School work done for the week. (The picture below is Squanto. J got a little "happy" with the shadowing technique. :) But I like the expression that he captured.)
Squash casserole ready to go. Along with a fresh apple pie. Tangled premiere with Lydie shared and loved.
House cleaned and car de-trashed. Clothes washed and bags packed. Check, check, check.

We are FINALLY ready for a FOUR day weekend with grandparents! Holiday with family, birthday celebrations, black Friday shopping, Auburn/Alabama game, then back home to decorate the house for Christmas. I am SO ready (and praying for coveted REST)!!
I almost gave up today. So tired, weary, discouraged about things that are out of my control. My husband came to the rescue, as usual. Loving the words below, tonight, as it all winds down and I remember it is all for Jesus. And that even when I forget, His grace abounds.
"Thank God! He deserves your thanks. His love never quits. Thank the God of all gods, His love never quits. Thank the Lord of lords, His love never quits."
Psalm 136:1
Hope for Thanksgiving day:
"When I fully enter into now, the weight of fully being in the moment slows time down. Full attentiveness is the only thing that does."
