About Town/Irish Thanksgiving

The past few days have been nice. I just wish they would slow down, our time is quickly and sadly coming to an end. We drove into town Thursday to gorge ourselves on delicious Portico Coffee, grab some essential Thanksgiving items (i.e. Turkey and Ham), and just because we wanted to. We also visited the church offices on our excursion. It is awesome seeing Calvary Waterford now especially with how I remember it from the last trip. Last time I was here, about ten people were meeting in an office space. It was awesome to see that, so you can imagine how cool it is to see the state of the church currently. It is thriving, the staff is solid and comprised of such amazing people, and there is a strong sense of family within the congregation. It is wonderful seeing the transformation over a few short years. God is good.

Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving! A day late and in Ireland, no less. It was great! We made homemade pumpkin pie (which, by the way, was sooo good), a turkey, and ham and everyone else brought the rest. We stuffed ourselves full of yummy food and then went around the table saying what we are thankful for. Now I know we are a few days past Thanksgiving, but I still would like to share what I am thankful for. I am so thankful for a God who loves unconditionally, a husband who is constantly patient and loving, our health and the health of our family and friends, our ability to attend an educational institution, and the opportunity to be here in Ireland with a dear friend and her littles. There is so much more I could write about, but I won’t bore you with it all. Enjoy the photos of the church offices, and our Thanksgiving day happenings. Oh, and sorry about all the blurry photos. Till next post…
