This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Taking time to Give Thanks

Thanksgiving preparations are in full swing here.
 The turkey is thawing!
To-do lists are made and awaiting those all important check marks as each task is completed.

Even the table scape is (finally) coming together!
I intentionally bought a larger tablecloth knowing I could use the excess fabric for something . . .
Turns out it was the perfect width for a table runner!!
The Give Thanks plate was a gift from Thanksgiving guests a few years ago.
The pumpkins and silks were great finds at Hobby Lobby last week - 80% off!
Sometimes waiting until the last minute pays off :)

This piece was inspired by the message at church just this morning.

I cut the lettering from vinyl and attached it to the front glass of a photo frame.
I placed scrapbook paper behind the glass which can easily be changed out to alter the look at a later date.

This is my reminder not to get so caught up in the doing that I forget about the thanking (and most importantly the Thankee)!!

Thanks to you for visiting!
Have a blessed and wonder-filled week!!

His Steadfast Love–Book Review

By Golden Keyes Parsons

A story of life and love set against the backdrop of the war that pit families and friends against each other.

Amanda, the daughter of a Texas pastor, is enchanted by the sky blue eyes of Captain Kent Littlefield from Pennsylvania. Honoring a promise to care for younger siblings Amanda had made to her dying mother, she asks Captain Littlefield to wait “just a bit” before courting her.

Four years later the country is engulfed in a civil war which puts them on opposite sides of the conflict. The novel offers insights into the emotional and physical conflicts many families endured during this devastating war.

After the war there is still much healing to be done both for the country and for families. Are the wounds too deep to be forgiven and allow long anticipated love to flourish?

I’m not a big reader of romance or war novels. The author, however, has developed several engaging characters and varied the story line enough here to keep me entertained and engaged.

I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson through their BookSneeze program. Opinions expressed in this review are my own.

Texture Tuesday - And Then Some

As I was on my way to "do something important" the other morning, the bright autumn sunshine came sparkling through my (newly cleaned!) windows in a way that made me stop and grab my camera.

The photo really doesn't give that little golden glow justice.
Had a special little time of praise and thanksgiving right there in my livingroom while snapping photos. Love it when God surprises me with a beautiful gift!

I used several layers of Kim Klassen's texture And Then Some to arrive at here:

Here's another photo from that little praise session.

Love it when God stops me in the middle of doing something important
to do something essential!

Visit Texture Tuesday to be inspired

Have a wonder-filled day!!
