I love this day of feasting and celebrations, spending time with family, stories told around the table, stuffed bellies, abundance and gratitude. And do you know what else I love? I love all the beautiful words that have happened here on Middle Places as this group of amazing ladies have shared about what Thanksgiving means to them.
So if you missed a post and you’re wiling away the time between innings of the football games, procrastinating doing the dirty dishes and cleaning up the kitchen that looks like it exploded, or you’re waiting for the bazillionth commercial to be over during the Macy’s parade, here’s a little bit of reading for you:
All of the Middle Sisters wish you and your families a safe, happy celebration as we launch from a day of Thanksgiving into the season of giving. We hope you’ll embrace the things you do well, drop old traditions that only cause stress, revel in the ordinary everyday moments, remember the One who has blessed us so very lavishly and remember that stuff is just stuff. But the Kingdom…that’s for eternity.
And Christmas is coming! A month from today it will just be a (hopefully) sweet memory. As you set out to conquer on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday or Cyber Monday, keep in mind this season doesn’t have to own you.
We all need a little grace for the holidays. But there's joy in this season of giving & gratitude.Click To Tweet
