Revival is like Thanksgiving Dinner

As I was going about doing housework this morning, a thought came to me. Since that only happens about once every ten years, I decided to stop doing housework and  share it with the world. After all, if I don’t do it now, I’ll forget it!

I was making the bed, thinking about the sermons I’d heard over the week. I thought about the illustrations given, about the points stated. I thought about the areas in which the Lord was dealing with me, and how I could make changes in the days and weeks to come.

Then, I thought to myself, “I have so much to chew on…so much to mediate over. It’s like a spiritual feast!” That brought to mind the upcoming holiday (my favorite) – Thanksgiving! The holiday characterized by giving thanks and eating the most enormous meal of the year. You sit down and have to choose what to eat first, and how much you’ll eat of each thing. There is usually more than one choice of meat, sides, and desserts. That’s what this revival meeting was like – so much meat, so much of everything! I’m having to choose what to “chew” on first! In my mind, I’m hopping from one thought to another to another! It reminded me of Thanksgiving dinner – so much good stuff!

Bro. Green was a blessing both in the pulpit and in private fellowship here in our home. It was a blessing to be around him. He is a true man of God, just like my husband! I was so blessed this week. I haven’t yet had time to hear how others were blessed, but I look forward to doing just that in the days to come.

It’s hard to believe that we are merely days away from Thanksgiving! It seems like yesterday was New Year’s! I’m looking forward to seeing my brother and sister this year. I’m also busily planning, and will soon be making, the gift I’m giving to the ladies in our church (more on that later!) I’m also planning on trying a few other crafty ideas this year. And of course, I’m working out so I can indulge in lots of goodies over the holidays. 🙂

As always, I’m thankful to you for dropping by and reading. It’s great to be able to connect in this way. You all are a blessing. Oh! And Happy Veteran’s Day! Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. I appreciate your sacrifice!

  1. I received a blessing from attending the revival Tuesday night. Bro. Green is an excellent preacher and a gracious man. I'm thankful I could hear him again.
    I love you!
