Hello! Welcome to Monday Morning Coffee and Chat! Today I’m going over the plan for the Thanksgiving meal cooking video extravaganza!
I am thrilled to be a part of the latest Crossroads Collections book. Each collection has a shared theme or event and the final book ties them all together. The theme for the When Snowflakes Never Cease collection is a record-breaking snowstorm that hits the United States at Christmastime.
My book, Blizzard in the Bluegrass, is the story of Gloria Sutton, a divorced mom of an 8-year-old boy with autism, and widower Jeff Brock, Charula, Kentucky’s newest family practice doctor. When the storm of the century blankets Kentucky under several feet of snow and whiteout conditions on Christmas day, Gloria and Jeff batten down at her father’s house, counting their blessings and basking in the warmth of their love. Until they discover that eight-year-old Noah is missing. Will they find him before he succumbs to the elements, or will this day forever mark a tragedy in their lives?
That’s the first book in the collection. Then we also have these amazing books:
Buried Secrets by Alana Terry
Cosette travels to a remote Alaskan wilderness to finally meet the love of her life, only to discover the man she fell in love with may be a murderer. Is she his next target?
Wrong About Mr. Wright by Chautona Havig
Ronni is convinced that her early retirement plan just got buried under the snowdrifts of Juniper Springs. Stranded, she teams up with local resident, Hank, and helps “make Christmas” for the rest of her fellow passengers. Now, if he’d just stop messing with her idea of the perfect man.
More Than Enough by Jaycee Weaver
For single mom Ada, there’s never enough: time, money, patience, joy. She’s not enough, though compassionate Kent disagrees. When a freak snowstorm traps the couple and her three kids in a theater on Christmas, she’ll either discover her worth in Christ or crumble under the pressure.
When Snowflakes Never Cease by Amanda Tru

I *LOVE* having a time of year where everyone focuses on the things for which they’re thankful. I love feasts and family and gathering and traditions. I love that until just the last couple of years, Thanksgiving was just Thanksgiving and nothing commercial or corporate. I love that there are people who seek out ways to serve today, at soup kitchens and missions around the country. I love that the roads were full of travelers yesterday heading to homes and families.
That said, I’m sad, as I type this, because when I got to my parents’ house last night and saw a commercial (which I never see at home, so I’ve been in ignorant bliss) that stores are opening at 5PM on Thanksgiving for Black Friday early birds. That sucks. And, I’m using this platform to exclaim how much that sucks.
But — aside from that, I think Thanksgiving is a beautiful time. I pray that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and in a moment of quiet prayer or meditation, give God thanks.
Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations. ~Psalm 100
