If we don’t have any other pies at our house at Thanksgiving, pumpkin and mincemeat are a given. The mincemeat pie is a special treat for my husband. I myself don’t care much for it, but I love to transform the top crust into a work of art. I mean, why cut a few straight lines into the crust when you can write a Thanksgiving message instead?
Last year’s pie had a few more embellishments. This year, as I’ve been moving to the tune of Tchai-cough-sky lately and not quite feeling myself, I kept it simple.

God is good at transforming things too. In fact, He desires that we all become transformed into the image of His dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. How does this happen?
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.
Just like all things in nature are renewed in their season, even so we are transformed by the renewing of our minds.
Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Lamentations 5:21 Turn us unto You, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old.
2 Corinthians 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.
A transformed heart will be filled with gratitude for all that God has done.
