But it’s especially nice at the holidays, when it’s cold outside and everyone is wanting to include warm and comforting side dishes in their special meals.

Happy Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving probably looks a lot different from other years for many of us, but despite all the challenges of 2020, we still have so much to be thankful for! Whatever our Thanksgiving celebrations are looking like, let’s reflect on our blessings today with grateful hearts. Praying you have a happy and healthy holiday and weekend!

Let joy be your continual feast. Make your life a prayer. And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks. I THESSALONIANS 5:16-18 (TPT)
