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
