lots to be thankful for

It almost seems cliché anymore to say we are blessed, like some lame facebook hashtag. We have health, happiness, a roof over our heads and food on the table. We have each other. That’s a whole heck of a lot more than so many people have these days. God has provided for us, as he always does, despite worries and doubts. My gratefulness is without measure. There is so much poverty and struggling around us here in Clarksville and God has really opened my eyes to it. It always seems so much more poignant this time of year.

We had Thanksgiving with our friends at their house but we prepped our contributions of the food to take over there here at home. After a little parade watching, Paige helped me make all the glorious sides that make the perfect Thanksgiving feast.

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.  

Isaiah 9:6


Memorial Day at Arlington

The start of The Rolling Thunder across Memorial Bridge. An event where bike riders from all around the country come to ride in honor of the soldiers on Memorial Day.

A little perspective is good for everyone. God bless America!

We got a few snow flurries today. It made a perfect backdrop for Christmas Eve.
