No Favorites...

Come on. Don't any of my faithful readers have a Thanksgiving favorite you want to share. I know you have been here reading, so why is it no one wants to share. I never get any comments, even when I beg. There have been over 10 of you visit here since my last post...some several times and no one wants to share? Give me something to work with here...I am running out of steam on this blog and could use a little help. How about you there in Kilgore, Texas. Don't you have a favorite Thanksgiving treat? What about my visitor from Conway? It's time my readers come out of the woodwork and at least say hello... :-)

Mmmmm - Thanksgiving

So, Thanksgiving is only a week away, and already my mouth is watering thinking about all of the holiday favorites that will be adorning my grandma's table. Of course, one of my all time favorites is the dressing. I love my mom's dressing - it is always so moist. I have never been good at making it myself but I am considering trying a recipe I have found for Crock Pot Cornbread dressing. If it turns out good, I will share it.

I am going to be taking deviled eggs - Skylar's all-time favorite - and sweet potato casserole. I love sweet potatoes. I may also whip up a crustless pumpkin pie since that is Stephen's favorite. Oh my poor waistline. It is already expanding just thinking about all of the food.

So, what are your favorite can't have Thanksgiving without it foods? Feel free to share in the comments section.

The Election

As this is not a political blog by any stretch, I have not expressed my political opinions here. That is mostly due to the fact that I really have a hard time expressing what I really feel. However, now that the election is over, I can only say that I will continue to pray for this country and it's leaders. America has chosen change over God, but it doesn't have to be that way. We can pray that God will be the one that does the changing. He changes hearts each and everyday and has been forever. And there is one thing that will never change, and that is God. The Bible tells us that He is unchanging. While I am not thrilled with the election results, I will not wallow in disappointment. This country CAN still change for the better. I really like what Lisa has to say about it all in her blog The Preacher's Wife. She expresses what I would like to say in much better terms. So, I will leave the politics up to the politicians, but I will bear my cross and pray daily for those that have been chosen to lead our country. I ask that you join me and pray the following scripture daily for our soon to be president...

Open Barack Obama’s eyes and turn him from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that he may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in Jesus. Acts 26:18
