Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s a normal day in Beirut, but that doesn’t mean we can’t fill the kitchen with smells of Thanksgiving!

 

 

We’re having a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with some friends next week, but we’ll have a mini-meal with our small group tonight… it won’t be quite traditional (chicken, stuffing, pumpkin soup and cranberry chutney) but it will be fun!

I’m so thankful for my amazing family – an incredible husband, goofy little Isla (who is currently licking her finger and wiping it on an imaginary owie on my arm), and sweet baby girl spinning in my belly right now.  And for our families in the States who we love and wish we could celebrate with today!

I’m thankful for friends near and far… for your support and encouragement and fun!

Most of all, I’m thankful to the Lord for saving me and for allowing us to be doing exactly what we’ve always dreamed.  It is truly a privilege to serve Him!

Isla wants to thank God for “this computer, the pictures up here on the wall, Mommy’s camera, Isla’s water, Daddy’s desk and coasters!”  (basically everything in her line of sight right now!)

I hope this day is filled with family, food and thankfulness… wherever you may be!
