Quote of the Weekend and Thanksgiving (Day 12)

“Every picture tells a story and every person has a story. But there is one Person whose story stands apart from all others and that story is God’s, recorded for us in the Bible. God’s story tells us that He created, what He created in the first place, why He created man and what man’s supposed to do, why there’s so much trouble on the earth, and where history is heading.” – Better than the Beginning by Richard Barcellos

Happy Thanksgiving!


Thanksgiving (Day 10)

I know this will horrify and shock many of you, but today I’m thankful for Christmas music.

I’m thankful for the soft warmth bundled up inside it. I’m thankful for so many happy memories nestled in each song. I’m thankful for the silly songs and the sad songs, and I’m thankful for the joy and sorrow the represent: God came to earth to save his people! What Joy! But to save us Christ had to die. What sorrow. I love that mix of joy and grief inherit to Christmas music.

I also love all the traditional American Bing Crosby type songs! They bring to mind happy days with family, lights, gifts, good food, and good cheer.
