Preparing for Our Thanksgiving Feast

Yes we are in new Zealand, No we are not American. But we celebrate our own Family Thanksgiving Feast. Ours is about our family going through a big family event, which has made us thank full we are together. Our Thanksgiving family meal is when we come together as a family and remember our blessings and share them with one another and Thank the Lord for all he has done in our family.

Yes we have a turkey, don't like having them at Christmas. It's too hot for roasting in our small kitchen. So it is a treat we don't normally get. It is a simple meal we share together, turkey and roast vegetables (maybe even potatoes from our garden), and a dessert. This years dessert will be homemade lemon cheesecake (our own lemons). Had a look in the fridge this week and saw all we need in there behind our salad dressing.

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Colossians 3:15-17
