Nourish means to sustain with food; to supply with what is necessary for life, health, and growth; to cherish, to strengthen, build up or promote.
Something Loved: Time with family over Thanksgiving not only nourished my body, but it truly nourished my soul, as well! This type of nourishment is definitely necessary for life and good mental health. It was a wonderful few days to cherish our time together. Sorry, no pictures as we were "in the moment"...so that's a good thing!
My daughters also got me started with nail wraps on our annual Mother/Daughter Thanksgiving Eve. We went out for dinner, the pecan pie was made and then we enjoyed the rest of the evening pampering ourselves. I think I did a good job on my first try! Can't wait to check out the rest of these fun wraps!
Something Read: I loved this quote from my morning devotional reading a few weeks ago and thought I'd share it here as well. It's from the First 5 App put out by Proverbs 31 Ministries.
Something Treasured: This piece of music was my very first recital piece when I was about 10 years old, played on the piano in the high school choir room. (Little did I know then, that I would accompany the high school choir a few years down the road). Seeing this brought back some good memories of former piano teachers who pushed me to hone my craft. Then, I realized I have been playing the piano for 50 years! I didn't always like practicing but am thankful that I can still play and use my gift for God's glory.
I found this sheet music at the National Museum of African American Music which I had the opportunity to explore for about 2 hours with my precious family the day after Thanksgiving. What rich history resides in this museum in downtown Nashville. A must-see if you are local or ever in the area. Great interactive exhibits and great use of technology! This nourished my mind with some new information!
Something Ahead: Advent and Christmas! I love this time of year and try to slow my mind down by reading an Advent devotional and remembering the true "reason for the season." I'm looking forward to doing a little decorating, some baking, and more time with family and friends!
See you again next month! The last one of 2021, can you believe it?
