Thanksgiving is not a Brazilian holiday, but we celebrated it anyways, with one American friend and four Brazilian friends. We had Brazilian lombo recheado com calabresa instead of turkey. Alfredo prepared it for us and it was delicious. But it’s not which kind of food that makes it a Thanksgiving meal, right? It’s eating together and being thankful that makes it a Thanksgiving meal.
We started the meal with an empty table and only five kernels of corn on each plate while Jevon told a story in both English and Portuguese. And then we ate together.
Thank you, Rachel, Alfredo, Fabia, Leticia, and Lais for sharing Thanksgiving with us!
Thank You, God,
for our family
for the food on our table
and a home to eat it in
for the friends who are with us
and for the friends who are not,
but thank You, most of all, for your Son.
Because most of all we needed a Savior.
a gift from my friend Fabia.
“which is the best place to live?
In the arms of God!
Here you find peace and security.
All that you need is here!”
And I even could read it! Which was very exciting to me.
