Relaxing on Thanksgiving.

I am having a pretty relaxing Thanksgiving. I know I haven't blogged for a while, but I sometimes have the best intentions...But, intentions don't replace actions. I am so thankful for so many things. My husband, my kids, my family. There are so many things...

I am taking a break from getting my stuffing in the crockpot, turkey in the oven, and dishes in the sink.

This is our first Thanksgiving where no one will be here but us. We invited our nephew, but I believe he will be having dinner with his girlfriend's family.

I brined my turkey this year. We were given, sort of as a Christmas bonus, a Hutterite turkey. I really hope it turns out!

So, I did take some pictures of the process. I will get them uploaded and share my non-expertise with whoever wants to read...

Here is my menu for the day:

Turkey
Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
Yams (many people call them sweet potatoes)
Stuffing
Green Beans
Pumpkin Pie
Egg Nog

Well, I am off to make Pie Crust...and be thankful...Most of all, thankful for Christ's finished work on the cross. Thankful that God doesn't see sin as the issue. Thankful that the only thing that separates us from God is rejection of our Lord's Complete and Finished work on the Cross on our behalf. He died FOR our sins. He was buried...raised for our JUSTIFICATION! He did it ALL, all we need to do is believe it!

Thank you God for providing a way for mankind to be reconciled to you!

oh...and thanks for Egg Nog.
