Bunnies can't cook turkey...




And neither can I, but I'm a pretty good dancer...

Thanksgiving 2009 marks the 44th consecutive year I have NOT cooked a turkey. Just lucky, I guess.

Thank you all for stopping by my silly little blog time and time again. Especially when you're never quite sure what you're in for once you get here. And while I'm rarely at a loss for words, I find myself struggling to convey what an incredible blessing this experience has been - from the friendships I have made to the doors that have opened up. It's really quite mind boggling.

I pray you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. I'm so very grateful for you. Not kidding...

Thanksgiving and Prayer

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart; for whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God's grace with me. God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.

-Philippians 1:3-11

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

And thanks for the laugh on this fogged-in morning in Arlington, Va. Can bunnies make the fog disappear and the sun come out?

My mom says that verse at every family meal. This will be the 15th year she's hosting "her last Thanksgiving dinner." Grateful for each one.

And for you. What a ride. Peace, friend.

You are so right about us bunnies... We cannot cook turkey, but we can dance like nobodies business..especially the Bunny Hop!

Hoppy Thanksgiving!

Can't tell you how glad I am the bunny washed the turkey before sticking his head inside...

A happy thanksgiving to you...and my thanks to you for the frequent chuckle and encouragement.

I appreciate you too! And I think you're discounting the fact that we keep showing up because we never know what we'll get (except on Mondays of course). :)

Blessings to you!

Are you telling us that you're 44? Because I NEVER would have guessed that. Happy (belated) Thanksgiving, friend! You truly are a blessing!

Wow. That video was disturbing. Cute, but disturbing!!!

Thanks for the prayer - I love how you blend humor and spirituality all at the same time.

I think God does too. :)
