Now I wish I had preached on the Old Testament lesson.I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Thanks! We had a great Thanksgiving. It was our first Thanksgiving we have had at home, with just our family. We decided not to travel 4 hours to Duluth to be with our extended families this year, since we were with them recently, and will spend a chunk of time with them after Christmas Day. Instead, we had our own Thanksgiving weekend, just Mindy, me and the three kids. It has been magical. Lots of good time together, games, movies, swimming at the community center, good food. And, to make Christmas Day less work, Mindy froze some Thanksgiving leftovers. Also, Mindy learned the value of living in a small town on 'black Friday,' when she went shopping in the wee hours of the morning and there weren't too many people.
