Blue Friday

My idea of "Black Friday" is blue

Enjoying the peace and pondering more "thanks-giving" and this word, eucharisteo, here.

Giving thanks for what I have versus what I want. 

Determining to live this season with more gratitude than greed and to help my family find the joy and contentment I am learning. 

Praying the contrast between the focus of this holiday and the next might deepen the lesson and that the "giving" part of the word might become our focus this Christmas.
