87 Thanksgiving Recipes from Pinterest and Adorned From Above

I love Thanksgiving.  I love the food, the friends and family, and this year a walk on the beach will also be part of my Thanksgiving Day.  I wanted to share some recipes from my Thanksgiving board on Pinterest and also some oldies from Adorned From Above.  We will not be with our family this year, but we will be with some wonderful friends in Florida.  

I pin recipes all of the time, so, this would be my dream Thanksgiving Dinner.   The bacon wrapped turkey looks especially yummy.  Charly made the Impossible Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes for our son's graduation party a few weeks ago and they were delicious.  I know you are going to love them.  I loved all of these side dish ideas, and what would Thanksgiving be like without a pie.  I saw one on the Food Network Baking Challenge the other day and it looked amazing.  I am going to try to come up with a recipe for that.  It will be a Cranberry Apple Pie topped with whipped cream.  I will take pictures and if it comes out as delicious as I think it will, I will share it with all of you next week.

I hope all of you ave a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Dear God Note 17

Dear God / Daddy,                           11/21/2015 I wake up each morning thinking about how much I love you.  I wake up grateful for each day.  I am grateful for the good and the bad, because that is what gives our lives substance, texture, and color.  I wake up each morning wanting my time with you to be face to face, never turning away, never blinking.  I am reminded each day that you are always with me and I am never alone.  That is the greatest gift of all. Your loving daughter. Debi


  It's been a little while since I have shared anything with all of you. Today I wanted to share what I am grateful for in my Dear God Note 17.

I read the book Eve, by Wm Paul Young.  He is the author of the book The Shack, and this is his new book about creation.  I will write a review in the next week, but one of the wonderful ideas in this book was Adam being face to face with God.  I love the thought of being face to face with God.  As long as Adam was face to face with God he never felt alone.  When Adam started turning away, looking to other things for companionship rather then God, is when he started to feel alone.  Even though he was never alone, he was human and could not see that.

So this week, I just want to share the idea of meeting God face to face everyday.  We are never alone, but sometimes we turn away and are not aware of it.  That is when we start to feel alone.  So may I suggest that everyday you join God FACE TO FACE.  Don't turn away, because what an amazing relationship you can have with Him, FACE TO FACE.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and God bless all of you.
