Sunday night we got together with the Pannell family and made gingerbread houses. We had a great time, and I actually ate some of the candy!
I had the wonderful blessing of being able to care for my husband today. He’s been sick all weekend, but it got worse today and he was home from work and in bed by about 12:30 today. (Can’t remember the last time he came home from work early sick.) He didn’t need a lot of attention, but I was able to make him some hot lemon drinks for his throat and take Kai to futsal practice. It feels so good to be able to help my family! Kala deserves some extra attention after the months of looking out for me!
On Sunday we sang such wonderful hymns of thanksgiving. I love the words to “Now Thank We All Our God.”
“Now thank we all our God with hearts and hands and voices, Who wondrous things hath done, in whom His earth rejoices;
Who from our mother’s arms, Hath blessed us on our way, With countless gifts of love and still is ours today.
Oh, may our bounteous God through all our life be near us, With ever joyful hearts and blessed peace to cheer us,
And keep us in His love, and guide us day and night, and free us from all ills, Protect us by his might.” –I feel protected by His might and so thankful for it!—Love and God’s mighty protection be with all of you–Melanie
