Setting a Thanksgiving Table

One of my favorite things in life is sitting around a pretty table with great friends and delicious food. I am most certain that when we get to heaven we will dine at a banqueting table (Isaiah 25:6-9) that has not only delicious food and the most wonderful company, but will be beautifully set.

For me, planning a party is all in the details. From the burlap silverware pouches to the wine cork place card holders. I love details, its what makes a good party a great party...that and the company! 

How are you setting your Thanksgiving table?

Filter Friday: Thankful for the Small Things

It's been a great week, full of food and fall fun. 
As we start the month of November and rapidly approach Thanksgiving I want to have a thankful heart.

It seems to me that we move to quickly from Halloween to Christmas and never take the time to enjoy a season of Thanksgiving. 
 I want to slow down. I want to enjoy the small things.

I want to stop in the busyness and be thankful. Thankful for silly friends, coffee breaks, decorated cookies, and the opportunity to vote.

Today, I want to be thankful for the small things.
