Autumn: Give Thanks

There are many wonderful ways to record the blessings in our lives. We get to take note, remember, study, and proclaim the works of the Lord and share them with those around us and future generations.

One way we have enjoyed writing down and displaying reminders of God’s mercies toward us has been through “The Thankful Tree.” A vase of branches becomes home to a record of many of the blessings we are thankful for. We’ve used pretty paper for the “leaves,” and even wooden chalk tags.

We still have last year’s “Thankful Tree” set up in our kitchen, ready for another Thanksgiving.

Another beautiful reminder to count it all joy and give thanks in all things is the “Give Thanks” embroidery pattern (or kit) from Clementine Pattern Co.

    I pinned your thankful tree on Pinterest last year and just clicked through to learn more about it. This is beautiful! I totally wish I was crafty enough to pull that gorgeous give thanks embroidery pattern, too! Thank you for sharing this.
