Thanksgiving is just around the corner and a lot of us are going to eat our turkey dinner with friends and family. So, why not take a little thank you gift to your holiday host home. This is a nice way to show your thanks and appreciation for them. This is my gift basket; you can fill yours with your favorite things.
Basket for gifts
Fall edition of a favorite magazine
Fall scented candle
Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer
Bag of favorite homemade cookies
The “fillings” of the basket can be anything that is special for your host. Have fun with it. Plus here is a bonus: if you take a little thank you gift you might even be invited back next year! During the Thanksgiving season remember to count your blessings and maybe even try to be one for someone else.
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” (Colossians 3:17)
Here is very easy and delicious recipe, perfect for a Thanksgiving get together!

Everything and everyone seems to demand our attention…Right Now! Especially with the holiday seasons approaching. We don’t have time to read that book, (or blog!), no time to try that recipe, too tired to do my devotion or volunteer for anything. We are in a world of great distractions, away from Jesus, our family, even ourselves! As moms and women we should try to be “distractionless” (yes, new word). I pray every day for direction and focus; and guess what? Every day the answer is the same! The Lord tells me “I am your direction and focus, keep your attention on Me.” My favorite new verse is Nehemiah 6:3 “I can not come down from this high place; I am carrying on a great project. Why should the work stop while I leave it and go down to you?” Even Nehemiah had distractions rebuilding Jerusalem’s walls. Maybe his distractions weren’t shopping, playing cards, Starbucks, TV shows or even church work, but still distractions. So, let’s stay up on our “high place” where ever the Lord has for us, and not get distracted: did I read Starbucks? Sorry, I still need some work!! Stay focused!!!
