Thankfully re-celebrating

As we gathered with part of our family on Thanksgiving Day, we not only gave thanks for God’s amazing provision for our lives…food, shelter, meaningful work…. but also in our lives…. re-celebrating weddings and a birth.

Tables were covered with the cloth used in July for the wedding aisle



we were surrounded by olive bushes from the reception, adorned with found bird’s nests from the orchard


herbs from the garden – parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, bay and garlic


were used to flavor a spatchcocked turkey



served with, dressing, mashed potatoes, yams, brussel sprouts, risotto, dill bread, corn bread, fresh cranberry sauce (as well as cranberry jelly complete with the markings of the can for a cranberry challenged family member), gravy (lots of it, even though the family member with gravy scarcity issues was not there) and pineapple custard


followed by apple custard pie


and pumpkin bourbon cheesecake


and a sing-along with Cousin Gail at the piano


food, love, laughter and song,

all nourishment for body and soul!
