'Tis the Season
I love Black Friday. No, not for the shopping bargains. I’m talking leftovers—turkey, dressing, potatoes, pies—whatever is remaining from Thanksgiving’s feast. After hours of cooking for Thursday’s big meal, any meal on Friday is a joy. Fill plates with leftovers, microwave, eat, and repeat. No prep, mess, fuss, or dishes if you use my favorite china. Yes, paper plates are the best invention since the car.
So wherever you are today and whatever you’re doing, take a second to be thankful for our many blessings, especially leftovers. “To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you inherit a blessing.” 1 Peter 3:8-9
Do you shop on Black Friday or stay home like me and eat leftovers? Maybe both, if you’re a cyber-shopper.
