Today is Black Friday. I am not a fan. Not sure where that name comes from...unless it's an indicator of the first day that the retail industry gets out of the red and into the black for the first time during the calendar year.
Instead, I slept in and had a late breakfast at the Corner Cafe. I enjoyed a plate of biscuits and gravy...which is SO not good for my diet. But I enjoyed it nonetheless. I used the time to plan my day and journal. I decided that I had lots to do today and plenty of time and energy to do it. Thank You, Lord!
Lord, bless all those crazy shoppers and keep them safe and sane. And especially bless all those people who chose not to feed into the frenzy of Black Friday. But even more, Lord, bless all those in the world who would love to get a gift for someone they love, but they simply do not have the financial resources to do so. Keep them warm and fed, safe and sound during this holiday season and throughout the year. Amen.
