What I Love About Thanksgiving!

By Debby Giusti

November in Georgia means leaves are falling, the days are warm, skies are clear and turkeys are on sale at Publix.  The hustle bustle of the Christmas shopping season is right around the corner, but I’m focused on family and food and enjoying both on Thanksgiving.  

Our celebration this Thursday starts at church as we give thanks to the Lord for all His blessings, for children and grandchildren, for jobs and health and wellbeing.  We pray for our country and for the courageous men and women in uniform, especially those deployed far from home.  We pray for their needs and their safety and for the families who wait for their return.  We also pray for our country and ask God’s continued protection and guidance so we can continue to be the land of the free and home of the brave. 

Later when the turkey is ready to be carved, when the potatoes are mashed and the gravy simmers on the back burner, we join hands around the dinner table and listen as each person recounts his or her own personal words of gratitude.  This year, I’ll give thanks for all of you who have touched my life and made it better.  Thanks for your friendship, your support, your encouragement and your love.

As always, you’re in my thoughts and prayers!

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving.

THE CAPTAIN'S MISSION, book 2 in Debby's Military Investigations series, is on sale now!
When one of his soldiers is killed by live ammunition
during what was supposed to be a simple training exercise,
Captain Phil Thibodeaux wants answers. Even if it means working with
the Criminal Investigation Division that seems certain to pin the blame
on him. But after CID agent Kelly McQueen defends his conduct,
Phil realizes that there’s more to the dedicated agent than meets
the eye. Maybe she’s someone he can trust, after all. And he’ll need
someone to rely on as investigations lead him to doubt everyone
elseeven his own soldiers.
