Hey, friend. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving, celebrating God’s goodness to His people. (For my U.S. friends.) I pray the Lord’s mercy on our nation, as well as across the globe.
And, thank you for the grace you offered me a couple of weeks ago as I was less active in the linkup while focusing on my family’s health. Thank you for your prayers, they are a gift to me. I pray health and well-being over your households as well. ♥
Thrilled to share that our Giveaway and Spotlight winner this month is Leslie N. Leslie’s online writing space is Journey to Imperfect where she shares about “Letting go of perfectionism, One prayer at a time.” I love Leslie’s heart for prayer. If you haven’t had a chance to connect with Leslie, I hope you’ll stop in soon and say hello.
Congratulations, Leslie! Let me know whether you’d prefer the insulated mug, or the writing journal and I’ll get it right out to you. May the Lord continue to bless your ministry of words. ♥
And, the excitement doesn’t end there friends, because today is also also 5th-Week-Fan-Girls!
Around here when a month has five Thursdays, we take that opportunity to show the love to our fellow writers. In addition to linking up our personal posts, we share a post that’s been a recent blessing to us from another site, as well.
If you’re comfortable, please feel free to link up a post that’s been meaningful to you recently from another friend’s site this week! (As well as your own, of course.) #FanGirls!

It’s a casual, pony-tail & sandals environment around here, but a few important reminders:
- Please remember to visit and leave some encouragement for other friends who’ve linked-up today — this is the heart of community & your words of support could be just the thing another friend needs to hear today.
- Please only share like-minded words of spiritual encouragement and insight.
- Please grab the #ChasingCommunity button, or link back here underneath your post. (So others can find us and join the fun too!)
- By linking up & leaving your email address you agree to receive #ChasingCommunity updates.
Thank you for bringing your dish to the table–May your ministry of words find community here.

I’m sharing Susan’s Tasty Tuesday November recap because I’m one of her fan girls, and because who doesn’t need a collection of goodness to get through the season of celebration and house guests!
Blessings to you, Brenda! I love this community!
Linda Stoll says
Oh yes, this seems to be a season when our families’ needs are very much urgent, present, and serious. And the best thing we can do is disappear from online for a spell and focus on those who are with us and need what we can offer.
Blessings to you, Brenda … you’ve modeled how to do that well.
Oh Congrats, Leslie! Brenda I pray you had a wonderful thanksgiving!

Thanks for the link up!
Yay! I was really late to link up today, but what a nice surprise to find I’ve been the winner of your giveaway! I’ll take the journal! Thank you so much, Brenda! And as always, thank you for being you and for such a great place to link up and make connections. I didn’t have a new article this week so I’m posting one of my older ones. It’s about prayer. : ) And grace. Love that grace upon grace that Jesus gives! I sure hope you all are feeling better now. Blessings, Brenda!

I hope your final week of November has been fantastic!
Hi, friend. I keep getting interrupted here with a lot of family stuff going on, but I wanted to pop back over here and say hi (and hit my linkup buddy). I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! 🙂
Oh, yes, I am seeing more and more the blesssings that come along with this community that God brings together! I am new to your beautiful site and great link-up. Thank you for the invitation! Blessings to you and your family!
