Seriously, though, Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to really consider all that we have to be grateful for, and I have spent the past few weeks truly thanking God for all He has done in my life. Seeing how many are persecuted for even believing in Jesus Christ in other parts of the world makes me so very thankful to live in the USA where I can worship loud and proud. That's no small thing.
Here's a perfect example. Have you read the comments made by this guy?
So what a ray of sunshine it was for me to read what young Angus had to say. Basically he said he thinks the show is "filth" (his word) and that he doesn't want to be on it anymore because it goes against his Christian values. (He is locked into one more year on his contract.) He even urged people to stop watching it. You can read more here:
Now, my guess is that he will soon be fired from the show, so he will get his wish. His words have caused a fire-storm in the media, with most accounts saying he's "biting the hand that feeds him," and criticizing his beliefs. But the cool thing about living in America with regard to this situation is that he won't be killed by our government because of his comments. He can be as outspoken as he wants to be about God and not be arrested for it. That's something we can all be grateful for. I'm also grateful that there exists a young man working in Hollywood who my daughter can look up to. Heaven knows there aren't many.
In home renovation news... THE FLOOR IS DONE! Woo hoo! Replacing the old yucky carpet with hard floors has made a tremendous difference. I took this picture the day the floors were finished, before I got all my decor arranged properly. The floors are pretty much the star of this photo!
This weekend I pulled out all the Christmas decorations, so the house looks like this now.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. It will look even moreso when we start on the other renovations. More to come!
