A good excuse and a before Thanksgiving accident

The frozen Northland is having a hard time living up to it's reputation this year, we have yet to see sub-zero temps! On the other hand we did get a load of snow right before Thanksgiving.
We hope that your Thanksgiving was as great as ours was this year, food, family, extras, it was great. We were so happy to have Gabriel back with us for Thanksgiving, he is doing very well in school and enjoying life in Chicago, he is growing by leaps in bounds (yeah, I am outing you Gabriel ;-) Feel free to add your own two cents).

This year we were particularly thankful that Sharayah is not only still with us but ate Thanksgiving dinner without hardly a scab to remind her that a week before she was going in for a CAT scan. Here is what was left of her car - 


The smallest detail was seen to in this accident as some good friends of ours gave Sharayah a car to replace this one, a reminder of how much our small lives mean to God in their tiniest detail.

Daughter of Exile played in Duluth on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. It was a bit much on all of us after our busy couple of days, I (Jasmine) actually forgot my guitar only to remember it when we were already half way to our destination which was three hours away, great, now what? Thankfully the crew at Amazing Grace, where we were playing, provided a loaner, the strings were a little old and it was a bit difficult keeping it in tune but it did work out. It was a good show. Music is such a good excuse to get out and meet people.

How was your Thanksgiving?

We are so grateful that she is doing well. It puts a whole other perspective on thankfulness.
