thrift store finds

It was a whirlwind weekend full of good times with family, good food, and some good deals.  We definitely perfected the art of Black Friday shopping; know what you want, grab it, get to the counter before the line wraps around the store, and on to the next one.  This is not a day to browse.  I also enjoyed that most of what we were looking for and buying was for other people. 
We enjoyed the time at "home" and are glad we were able to make the trip.  But those are just the accessories to the true purpose of the day.

This year we have many things to be thankful for.  We continue to be thankful for the salvation and hope we find in Jesus.  His presence in our life cannot be mistaken.  We are thankful and blessed that He has led us to serve at a God loving, people loving, life changing, mission minded, growing, serving church.  We have been able to heal and to grow.  We are thankful for God's provision in many ways, but especially financially.  We are thankful for new friendships made through our small group and the music ministry.  We are thankful for the opportunity that has been afforded to us for Will to return to school and pursue his DMA.  We are thankful for our health.  And I know I can speak for both of us in saying, we are thankful to be doing life together. 

Happy Thanksgiving (really late)!
