Here is our best photo of Thanksgiving. I forgot my camera so was counting on the other photographer. This is his best offering.
That was fun. They are red, green, and white lights and, if I could, I'd take a good pic of them after dark. I can't. They shouldn't add too much to the electric bill.
Did I say that I was planning to keep things simple? Silly me!

Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow. ~Edward Sandford Martin

This quote has been powerfully meaningful to me. I can use it to process what is going on in my mind and heart. For example, I am tired and ready to quit... Meanwhile, courage! Your moments of nervousness are not your real self, only medical phenomena. I don't feel well... Meanwhile, courage! Your moments of nervousness are not your real self, only medical phenomena. I am worried about this person... Meanwhile, courage! Your moments of nervousness are not your real self, only medical phenomena. You see? It works for any. possible. thing.
And who is this "real self"? The real self only applies to those who have given themselves to Christ. (The very best news ever is that all are invited to give themselves to Him.) When we have, He lives in us and through us. There is nothing that we can do without Him.
...For He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us...
I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
A blessed Sunday and a blessed week to you!

Yes, I have been shopping on QVC. Christmas is coming and it came for me on the same day that my Rosella package arrived.
I have not had new makeup in years. It was time. The last time I purchased an entire collection was in college...Mary Kay...some 💋💇👸💁💦💨💟 years ago. I still love Mary Kay, but this collection was a whole lot less expensive and it goes on a whole lot faster.
Aside from the squirrel-nibbled eyebrows, I think the make-up looks pretty good.
I was trying to decide if I liked the perm.

It was a quiet weekend. The only thing that caused me distress was news surrounding the corruption that prevails in my country these days and has, apparently, for a long time. It's enough to make a person physically ill. Some politicians (of all varieties) obviously think The United States is some banana republic. Unbelievable. Do they not know that they work for us and not the other way around?
On to brighter things...
↓Yesterday was my mother's birthday so I took one of the mum plants for her grave. While there I found plenty of bittersweet.↑
Take it easy now and keep praying, keep believing, and keep looking up!
