Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
Ephesians 2:7-10 The Message

Thansgiving Surprise

We had a wonderful time keeping secrets before Thanksgiving. The "friends" we looked forward to spending the day with were really our family! My mom and Butch's sister knew we were coming to Washington for Thanskgiving but no one else did. Oh it's so much fun to surprise people!!!!

On Thanskgiving day we sat in the car at Butch's sister's while he called his mom, who was inside, to wish her a happy Thanksgiving. We sent the kids in, when Butch asked her if she wanted to to talk to them, he told her to look around, she might be able to find them. I wish I could have seen her face. Priceless I'm sure.

We had a wonderful time and came home feeling a bit tired but rested as well. It took us about 20 hours to drive up. Coming home we spent the night in Medford, OR and drove the rest of the way Monday. We got home Monday night about 9:30.

It was nice to see our families and to see friends too. We surprised everyone at church Sunday. That was fun too because they didn't know we were coming and a lot of people said good morning first, then realized who they said good morning too. I think a few people might have gotten whiplash!

Movie night is tonight so I'm off to make popcorn. It's takes a long time to make enough but it sure is worth it. In the words of Mr. Food, "It's oh, so good"

Have a blessed weekend.
