It’s Tuesday night…two days before Turkey Day. I just wanted to share something with you…listen up now…”They are coming!” One is traveling from Kentucky right now as I write this. The other is to be here all the way from Oklahoma tomorrow afternoon. I feel something like I felt as a kid on Christmas eve…only better…much better.
The world’s two finest granddaughters, Skylar and Remi are on the way to see Poppa Oakes. They are excited too. I know what is the cause behind every one of their frowns or cries or fussiness. Some people might suggest that it’s because they have gas, or they’re hungry, or just plain tired. Of course that’s not it at all. They miss their Poppa O. But not tomorrow! Tomorrow it will be all better. Tomorrow geography has no power to come between us. Tomorrow I will hold, hug, kiss, crawl, swing, carry, play, show them off and look at them to my heart’s content. They’re coming! Thank God.
I hope you get some special family time over this holiday time. I hope your reasons for thanksgiving will come easily to your heart and in great number. But even if you can’t be with your family…or if you have no family to go home to…you are still God’s Beloved. You will always belong at home with Him.
Hey…and I wouldn’t want you to forget that I love you too. Happy Thanksgiving, gals and guys!
