Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I was very thankful that Jesse made it home for the holiday. We went to church on Thanksgiving morning. We sang the song Open Up the Sky by Deluge. The chorus of the song goes:
Open up the sky, fall down like rain
We don't want blessings, we want You
Open up the sky, fall down like fire
We don't want anything but You
This hit me. The thought of not desiring blessings, only desiring Him. Such a powerful message. I am often hoping for wonderful things to happen to our family and less often just wanting Him. It doesn't matter what our earthly lives have in store for us, as long as we have God in our lives, we have an internal life that is full of the biggest treasure every imagined.

Also at church, Jesse got asked during the middle of service to come up on the stage in front of 500+ people. Jesse looked a little panicked, to say the least. Pastor Dean asked him questions about his military service and also asked him what he was most thankful for that day. Jesse, being the good husband he is, he said he was most thankful for his wife. Awwwww! So sweet, until the pastor asked me to stand up in the congregation, I think I turned 10 shades of red. But... we got through it.
After church, we headed over the my parents house and had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner full of family, friends, and delicious food.
