Weekend Care Package

“That house was, as Bilbo had long ago reported, ‘a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep, or storytelling or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all.’ Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear and sadness.” ~ JRR Tolkien

Welcome to the weekend care package. I hope to offer a little lightness for your soul.

My Thanksgiving day was spent with family at the most creative, lovely home (@dittamoregirls). The weather was sunny and cool. Kids jumped in leaf piles. Dads played ping pong and watched football. I held my baby niece, ate southern casseroles, and sat on the back porch drinking coffee with Jeff.

It was a cure for any weariness, being in such a home.

Evening came and Jeff and I worked until midnight, painting cabinets and fixing electrical outlets at our future home. All the hours of renovation motivated by dreams of creating a home for memories like these one day.

A special thanks to all hostesses opening your homes and tables this Thanksgiving weekend. I pray you will not underestimate your kindness and generosity, and the ways it brings about the kingdom of Heaven here on Earth.

Brenda Price on Facebook (prayer/quote)

Brenda is a friend of mine, and she used to babysit me back in the day! The Anne of Green Gables party I wrote a blog post on was hosted by Brenda. I love the prayers she shares on Facebook.

“For each new morning with its light, for rest and shelter of the night, for health and food, for love and friends, for everything Thy goodness sends… Father in heaven, we thank Thee. ” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Be present, O merciful God, and protect us through the hours of this night, so that we who are wearied by the changes and chances of this life may rest in your eternal changelessness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.” – Book of Common Prayer
