Happy Thanksgiving!

We are crazy, and in the car driving to Canada for a few days! While we won't technically be celebrating American Thanksgiving, we will be abounding in thankfulness as we get to spend time with some dear friends of ours in Calgary. 

I hope that today you are able to dwell on the things that you can be thankful for. I know that for many people, the holidays are painful. They can be a reminder of the imperfections of life. They aren't all Hallmark movie-ish. 

I want to say to you today - whether you're having a big Thanksgiving bash, or whether today is a painful time for you; whether you feel incredibly appreciative, or you struggle to find something to be thankful for: You are deeply loved by God. You are valuable, important, and cared for. God readily accepts you, with all your mess, and with all your joys. I know this because He accepts me, in my mess, too.

Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Mackenzie,

    I've been meaning to comment for awhile now... but I absolutely love your blog. Thanks for pointing us to the foot of the cross. For being an example of Jesus. You are a beautiful woman and that boy of yours is the cutest thing ever.

    Many blessings on this Thanksgiving (oh, and from Spain!),
