I can't believe Thanksgiving has come and gone.
But I am grateful for the leftovers so that I can make my Turkey Florentine recipe tonight.
I can't believe it is November 25th and I am panicked about running out of time to buy gifts (I guess the early Christmas - I mean, "holiday" - marketing is doing its job).
But I am grateful I still have exactly one month to get the job done.
I can't believe Lee got up at 3 a.m. for his super duper Black Friday Deal.
But I am grateful he let me sleep in and do my shopping at 10 a.m.
I can't believe my oldest is learning to drive.
But I am grateful there were no tears for her first hands-on lesson with dad.
I can't believe how many school concerts I "get" to attend in the next two weeks.
But I am grateful my kids love to perform.
I can't believe how low my bank account is right now.
But I am grateful my husband has a job.
I can't believe I am actually going to see my siblings-in-law in a couple weeks.
But I am grateful we are all looking forward to the meeting.
I can't believe I am a no-good-lousy-sinner.
But I am grateful that while I am yet a sinner, Christ loves me enough to be born a man,
die a criminal, and make me righteous in his sight.
This is the season of Believe.
I just need to make sure I Believe in the right thing.
