give thanks.

“To those of us who believe that all of life is sacred every crumb of bread and sip of wine is a Eucharist, a remembrance, a call to awareness of holiness right where we are.
I want all of the holiness of the Eucharist to spill out beyond church walls, out of the hands of priests and into the regular streets and sidewalks, into the hands of regular, grubby people like you and me, onto our tables, in our kitchens and dining rooms and backyards.” - shauna neiquist 

 caleb && i were thrilled to host our first thanksgiving. i had bought every "thanksgiving" magazine on the shelves, cutting out recipes && finding the best gravy, the best mashed potatoes, the best cranberry sauce. caleb built a beautiful farm table. we were preparing for a feast. 

a storm almost haulted the plans and prayers went up. my family made it safely on wednesday night. thursday was filled with love and laughter. little hiccups, here & there. lumps in mashed potatoes, lemon juice on creme chairs, upside down cooked turkey (who would have known there is a- wrong way to turn your turkey); however, it was the most beautiful day i could ever imagine. 

a very, very thankful heart.
