Thanksgiving consists of

   Consists is a weird word, don't you think?  I mean, just look at it.  It has so much quirk!  You could also say "consists" over and over again using different intonations and accents, and draw it out until it's the longest word you've ever said in your life, and say it a bajillion times as fast as you can until it doesn't even sound like a word anymore.  Or you could just promise never to be a word-addicted weirdo like me and move on with your life.
   Now, what was this post supposed to be about?  Ah, yes. Turkey-day!  So let me tell what my Thanksgiving break has consisted of thus far:
  • sleeping in. amen.
  • family collaboration. resulting in broccoli and cauliflower salad and pie. mostly pie.
  • painting my nails for the first time in months.
  • The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R Tolkien.
  • old VHS movies.
  • seeing cousins who are old and in college and getting married and having babies and all that jazz.
  • sooo. much. food. it was sooo good.
  • a new lyric obsession. "I wanna be so far gone in You.." Thousand Foot Krutch. yes.
  • plastering paper snowflakes all over the windows.
  • not going shopping.
  • inhaling leftover rolls and pie.
  • clean laundry.
  • teaching Jonathon that listening to music really means belting out the lyrics (and instrumentals) whenever you feel like it.
  • dance parties with the 4-year-old. while frying eggs. don't try this at home.
  • realizing all over again how good God is. blows my mind.
   And you?  I'm dying to hear of your fabulous holiday experience.  Any special traditions?  Yummiest food?  Hilarious moments?  What are you thankful for?  Happy fall y'all!

I made a parody

So this was us on the way back to the house from hunting yesterday..

Me: Guess what? I made a parody!
Jonathon: I don't wanna know..
Me: (singing) What time is it? Suppertime, it's our predation. What time is it? Suppertime, food's out, scream and shout! (♪♫♪)
Jonathon: Oh yeah? You gotta getchagetchagetcha getcha food on the plate!

There is a slight possibililty we spent too much time in the woods. But probably not.

Me: God, I wanna see You! I wanna see Your glory! I wanna see Your glory.

God: You’re gonna have to get rid of some of your glory to make room for mine.

Me: *cry*

God: Even when you’re doing something for Me, you’re doing it to glorify yourself. You want people to look at you and be amazed by how good of a Christian you are, by how much you love Me. I want people to look at you and see Me.

Me: *cry*

Song: Your love never fails, it never runs out, it never gives up on me..

Me: God, I wanna love people like you love them. I want my love to be like Yours!

God: No. You just want more of my love.


I don’t need a better Michaela.  I just need a perfect God.
