CLAY CENTER – One of my highlights each Christmas is putting up the tree and trimming it out with lights and decorations. We start at the bottom and wind our way upwards finishing it off with the angel at the top. Then the drum rolls for the big test – plugging it in.

What comes to mind when you think of Thanksgiving? Do you picture a time of thankfulness toward God - or is it merely one of eating, partying or watching football? On this holiday, a Thanksgiving meal is prepared with all the trimmings; families gather together and talk, while others watch a game or a parade filled with pilgrims, Indians and giant cartoon characters. Some families may even have their own yearly Thanksgiving traditions.
