Give Thanks - Thanksgiving

Breezy drew this lettering based on Psalm 111:1 with chalk on a framed chalkboard.

Give Thanks - Thanksgiving

In the kitchen, near The Thankful Tree.

Give Thanks - Thanksgiving

“Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
Great are the works of the Lord,
studied by all who delight in them.
Full of splendor and majesty is His work,
and His righteousness endures forever.”

—Psalm 111:1-3

Have a most joyous and blessed Thanksgiving!

P.S. I would love to know what you are thankful for – feel free to share with me in a comment!

The Thankful Tree

Autumn is such a beautiful season – the colors, the weather, etc. More than that, though, it is beautiful to see people give thanks, counting how many ways God has blessed them. And for each and everyone of us living and breathing, that list is unending.

One way we display reminders to cultivate a thankful heart is with The Thankful Tree. This year instead of scrapbook paper we are using wooden chalkboard tags.

The Thankful Tree

For assembling, all you need is:

Sticks
Wooden Chalkboard Tags (make your own or buy them already made)
Chalk (you can sharpen the chalk with a pencil sharpener)
Scissors
Glass Jar – gallon (shown) or half-gallon
Assorted Nuts, for extra beauty
Burlap and/or Ribbon, for extra beauty
Thankful Heart (“I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart…”)

The Thankful Tree

The Thankful Tree

“Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon His name;
make known His deeds among the peoples!
Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
tell of all His wondrous works!”

—1 Chronicles 16:8-9

The Thankful Tree

Are you building a Thankful Tree this year? What blessings will you be etching on the ornaments?

My sister is an artist. Her artwork is beautiful, wholesome, and truly delightful. Each piece tells a story, a story of adventure, joy, faithfulness, discovery, friendship, work, love, childhood, etc.

Last week, I had the great pleasure of setting up her online portfolio

And now you can easily enjoy a closer look at her illustrations and sketchbook!

It has been such a blessing to watch her cultivate this gift, and develop an amazing God-given talent… but the best part is how she seeks to honor the Lord through the work of her hands.

You can visit her online portfolio at BreezyTulip.com!

"Peace" by Clementine Patterns

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
–Philippians 4:4-7

Joy is more than a smile, it is an attitude of the heart which permeates your entire being. It affects all of life, how you handle situations, and how you reach out to others. As Mum said, “[joy] is internal and eternal.” And there’s only one place to find and have true joy – it is found in the Lord.

“You make known to me the path of life;
in Your presence there is fullness of joy;
at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
—Psalm 16:11
