Gratitude Challenge Day 24: Food!

I love food. I think I've said it a time or two in various posts. But, just in case you've missed it....




Today I'm thankful for a God that provides. Not only does He provide for our family daily, but the creativity in which He does it just amazes me. We've been blessed by others when they never suspected that we needed it, and in turn we have tried to bless others when we were able. The creativity in God's creations amazes me as well! It may be because of my love of art, but my fascination with color is stoked when I think of the wide variety of food available to us. Ruby red strawberries... Deep orange pumpkins... Bright yellow lemons... The list can go on and on.

I'm thankful not only for the food that He has put on my table, but the food that groups and churches put on the table for others. God bless the workers in soup kitchens and food banks this holiday season.

My wish tonight is that you will each enjoy your Thanksgiving meals this week! We'll be celebrating a day later than most so that my mother can join us. Instead of having turkey on Thursday I'll be watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in my jammies while I rest and crochet. Oh, who am I kidding... I'll be cooking several dishes ahead (and sneaking tastes of all of the wonderful flavors as I go!)
