Brrrrr!!! "Hotlanta" isn't so hot right now. In fact, it is freeeezing! When I left Florida yesterday morning after spending Thanksgiving with my family, it was 72 degrees. I arrived in Atlanta last night and it was 34 degrees outside! Evidently, there were snow flurries all day, and they just happened to stop right before I got home. :( I hope I'm gonna get to see some snow before Christmas!
Anyways, I had a blast with my family during Thanksgiving and ate waaay too much. I had lost a lot of weight while in Atlanta because I don't have my mom around to cook for me, but I am sure that I gained a whole lot of it back this past weekend!
Here are the Thanksgiving turkeys, my Mom, Mammaw and the bird...lol :)
I loved getting to see my nephew, Riley! He has grown so much since I last saw him a couple months ago.
Riley got a whole lotta suga' from his Aunt Jenifer! I just couldn't resist - He's so cute! I am crazy about this child!
The 3 J's minus one. My sister, Jane could not be there for Thanksgiving, but I had fun with my sis, Joy. She is 8 1/2 months pregnant with my 2nd nephew, Joel. I can't wait to meet him in a few weeks! I've already talked to him through her belly, and I know he must be anxious to meet me too! :)
On Saturday, I went to the beach - just me and God - to watch the sunset. I think He created this beautiful one just for me! I love being in God's creation, and it makes me feel so close to Him.
This time at the beach was a great time to reflect and thank God for all the many blessings He has given me. I sometimes get caught up in worrying about everything that I don't have that I forget about how much God has done for me and provided me with. When I compare the list of things I'm not satisfied with to the things God has blessed me with, His blessings FAR outweigh the other stuff.
"How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand..."
