Another Thanksgiving Day has come and gone. Lots of the 3 f's (food, family & fun). Every year is special, this one because I spent it with my family in Mississippi and my sweet Aunt Willie Mae. The only downside; Shannon, Scott, Ashley & Jon were not here. They just don't know what they missed! Here is just a few things:

Aunt Willie Mae's famous dressing (YUM) and her pecan pie.
The twins in their element, so cute and loving and BUSY.
Sitting around the table remembering Thanksgivings past and those loved
ones who are celebrating in heaven. I know that sounds morbid, but it isn't.
Best of all, beating the socks off David B. in Farkel!
Lots of laughs and oh yes, the pumpkin pie and cheese cake and for Ashley,
the best mashed potatoes and sweet potato casserole and deviled eggs and......

Gotta go now, there is Uncle David's pancakes waiting! (Sorry Ash) This week has set Weight Watchers back a month at least.

Hope your T Day was as special and that every day for the next year will be for giving thanks.

This has been another week of milestones. We have a new president and he is unlike any that has ever led our country before and that leaves us facing an uncertain future. I intend to pray for him and our country daily.

A milestone of a different kind, a man admired by millions of people celebrated his 90th birthday this week. Rev. Billy Graham has stood the test of time, fame, fortune and the public eye, remaining a godly man of integrity and honesty. He did not disappoint.

Today the Fox clan will celebrate the 9oth birthday of another man, not famous, not wealthy or known by the public (unless you count his popularity on the golf course), but also a godly man of integrity and father-in-law, Woody Fox. He is in amazingly good health and of sound mind. He has been a good husband, father, grandfather, provider and faithful Sunday school teacher. He also did not disappoint.

Both of these men have lived through World wars, the great depression, mechanical and technology changes, space travel and the list goes on....... They not only survived, they lived wonderful lives. In 1918 they could never have imagined life in 2008.

Even though we can't imagine what our future will be like, nothing in it is a surprise to God. He is the same today as in 1918. We who trust in Him, will not only survive but live an abundant life. God promised it and He NEVER disappoints!
