My Thanksgiving was amazing. Just like every year my family, and another family joined houses and celebrated our friendship and love for eachother. It is nice because our family has grown, kids now have kids, and marriages are happening left and right. One thing that hasn’t changed though is the food. We stick to tradition. Although, this year our frier broke midway through the frying of our Turkey. We had to settle for only 2 turkeys.
This year Martina McBride decided to show off her cooking skills online, but received backlash for doing it. She posted a picture of her amazing dinner, but she took the opportunity to advertise for her new cookbook. Some fans did not take lightly to her advertising. “Hunter’s Chicken from ‘Around The Table’ ready to go in the oven for Thanksgiving dinner,” she captioned the shots. “It won over turkey by popular vote in the McBride house.”
Dang, y’all, this chicken looks incredible! It seems to be an Italian or Mediterranean variation: tomatoes, olives, all the good stuff. We can see how this would be a family favorite.
Do you think she was wrong to advertise her book online during Thanksgiving?
Thank You, Lord, for the times You came through for us when we didn’t even know we needed a rescue.
Thank You, Lord, for the losses we have experienced. They have been a reminder that You are our greatest gain.
Thank You, God, for the tears we have shed. They have kept our hearts soft and moldable.
Thank You, God, for the times we haven’t been able to control our circumstances. They have reminded us that You are sovereign and on the throne.
Thank You, God, for Your ability to take what we consider ‘tragedy’ and turn it into a treasure.
Thank You, God, for those You have called home to be with You. Their absence from this earth reminds us to keep our eyes fixed on heaven.
Thank You, God, that we have an inheritance in the heavenly places…something that this world can never steal from us and we could never selfishly squander.
Thank You, God, for the greatest gift You could ever give us: forgiveness through Your perfect Son’s death on the cross on our behalf.
