Equipping Godly Women : Who Is Missing From Your Table This Thanksgiving?

From Sarah :

My first thought when I saw this post was Bobby.

Then my mom.

Both are in Heaven.

Then I thought of my dad and sister. 

The brother I seldom hear from.

My niece and nephew and their children. Aunts and Uncles. Cousins.

All of the loved ones who once sat around our table. Or we sat around theirs.Grandparents..Great grand parents. And so on.

Friends and neighbors.

I miss them all.

I miss cooking for an army and having them sitting at my table.

The dinners my mom and grandma use to make.

Every year, Danny and I eat at our managers house. With their family and friends. With park staff and their families. While I enjoy it….it gets harder every year.

I feel like an outsider.

What helps is working with our church and cooking for the shutins. The less fortunate.This weekend, I am up to my neck in turkeys , dressing, breads,gravy, etc.

Danny will be helping as soon as he gets home from work. I thrive on this. I am doing it to help.
I am doing it for me.

 ‘When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.’”

— Luke 14:12-14

What plans do you have this Thanksgiving? How can you use this holiday as an opportunity to bless others?

My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
