Where The Pecans Grow

Give Thanks- "I'm speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relation to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it's important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him." Verse 3.

Step One: Tell Him Thanks.

Where the pecans grow, 
Stands a warm house, 
Filled with family, 
Who like to eat,
After a prayer, 
And before laughing, 
When children play, 
And grandparents hug, 
While babies are kissed, 
Biscuits are served, 
As lives are shared, 
  Where the pecans grow.  

Today, I am thankful for my family. A family who eats together, prays together, and lives together.  And, this is why Saturday morning breakfasts on Pecan Grove are what I look forward to each week.
