The Sound of the Starting pistol

Well many have already heard the sound of the starting pistol in the race for buying stuff?

For some these days will be very difficult. For some the holiday is one of a series of firsts. First time the baby in the family, a First miss of Thanksgiving by my mother. She’s in the Hospital. My brother and his wife for the 1st time had to cancel their Thanksgiving dinner. They had 3 family members in the hospital at the same time in 3 different areas of Texas.

While we recognize this is uncomfortable, we remain very thankful. We, comfort one another with gentle reminders! Although we are separated, we will soon be together again. Ecclesiastes 3:11. After demonstrating that everything has its time in 3:1-10, Solomon writes:

He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.

Meanwhile, there is lots of happy, thankfulness to go around. More than 2 billion people on this planet live on less than $450.00 annually, that new   knowledge made me “thankful” for what Michelle and I have!

From Good Friends in the Morning, Al & Kevin hope you have many Thankful and Happy days ahead during the Holidays and Christmas!

Pushing a cart through the grocery store is like a bumper to bumper traffic tango during a traffic jam. Continue reading

Juggling Holidays Events

Juggling multiple Thanksgiving invites can be stressful. Do your parents still have expectations for you on holidays like Turkey Day as an adult?

My brother “unofficially” expects our whole family to be together, and he applies pressure (gently) by hosting the meal. And invites Everyone to His place!

Are there any unwritten rules that feel more like family politics?

For many, a good chunk of Thanksgiving Day is spent in the car going from one family meal to the next.
