This painting hangs in my grandparents' house ("Grace" by Enstrom). My grandmother has told me that she loves it because the man has only a bowl of soup, a loaf of bread and his Bible, but he's grateful for it all. After seeing it on her wall for 37 years, I love it too.
We have so much more than soup and bread this Thanksgiving. We are grateful for the beautiful meal we will enjoy, the family we have, and for the season of Advent that is upon us.
