Well, it's that time of year again! The time when we've finished digesting our Thanksgiving turkey and now begin preparing for Christmas. Were you courageous/crazy enough to shop on Black Friday, or do you prefer to go out later or shop online? However you spend these next few weeks, we hope that you will enjoy the blessings and joy of the season, instead of being too swept up in the holiday rush.

And since we've just finished celebrating, we'd like to know: What did you enjoy most about Thanksgiving this year? To answer, just click here.

A thought from the Word:

Psalm 31:19

How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you.


How about some new SocialCam videos? This time, we're featuring videos from Thanksgiving. First, poor Karen Peck Gooch has an awful time trying to get a carrot cake baked, and she shares that hilarity with everyone. Next, Mark Lowry captures the Nelons on film, singing a wonderful a cappella rendition of "The Lord's Prayer." And last but not least, Joe "Ban-Joey" Bonsall expresses his thankfulness. Even though the holiday has passed, it's good to remember to be thankful all year long, isn't it? To watch, just click here!
