Happy Thanksgiving to You

A happy thanksgiving to you, dear reader. Thanks for stopping by -- no matter if today is thanksgiving. For those of you who see this on Thanksgiving Day, I hope that you are enjoying it. I hope that you had plenty to be thankful for and if you felt you did not, that you had others around you to help you see that you do. If you are seeing this after Thanksgiving, I pray your celebration/gathering was blessed and merry. My warm greetings come during my short (but sweet) stop at my parents home. I'm spending almost my whole Thanksgiving serving the travelers to this wonderful city... yes, I'm at work. They were kind enough to let me go home for two hours to eat with my family and watch some football (GO COWBOYS!).

Thanksgiving is such a wonderful time for me. No, not because I'm the fat kid on the block. Although that may be the case, I love it because I love people. I love everything about each person that makes them unique and everything about them that connects them to me and everyone else. I sense a deep connection with most people I meet that I know can only come as a grace from God. I know I've talked about it some before but try not to talk about it TOO much because I'm so bad at explaining what it is I sense.

Anyway, all this to say: today I give thanks to God for you. You are beautiful. Be holy.

Why don't I write very often? It'd be easy to say it's because I don't have a computer or I don't have the time. But the truth is I don't write because I do not want to talk because I can. I do not want to type because I can. If I come back and I'm someone different than I was, it'll be okay. Because in coming back changed I know that I have not been at fault in not writing. If writing hinders me from growing and changing and healing then I should not write. And I think, sometimes, thats what writing is. Writing is the chance to take on something I'm not or to talk about something I wish I could DO -- and likely I can do but wont because it's easier just to write.

If none of this makes sense, it's quite alright. I don't suppose I sat down to write and make sense. I sat down to write out what I've been thinking - a way of actualizing if you will. So again I go on my way and leave this blog to sit and be still. In it's stillness lies change. I can't put my finger on it yet but change is happening. Please Lord stay by my side and help me through this confusing time...

One step at a time...

I'll be back to writing again soon I'm sure but for now:

Your Inner European is French!

Smart and sophisticated.

You have the best of everything - at least, *you* think so.

Also, don't forget about our first friday fast for an end to abortion! If you've forgotten, it's alright. But remember to start it up again in December. The first friday is on the 7th!

May the Lord bless you each abundantly...
