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?

Snowy Bush

Boots in the Snow

First Snow of 2012

We had our first snowfall of the season this morning. It was beautiful. Although the snow didn’t last long after the sun emerged from the clouds, I was glad to be able to record the white glory.

The Children's Titanic Paper Dolls

After spending months pouring into this project, Breezy and I are grateful to present:

Inside you will find paper dolls of the Captain and 15 of the most beloved passengers of the Titanic, mini-biographies, clothing changes, two fold-out scenes on the decks of the Titanic, and a faithful retelling of God’s Providential work in history.

While learning about the bravery and sacrifice, children can play and remember…

Men gave their lives so that women and children could live. “Women and children first,” was the cry! Then the lifeboats were lowered into the freezing water below and were rowed away from the sinking ship.

One hundred years ago this year was a night to remember. May we never forget to honor those brave men who went down with the ship, sacrificing their lives so that others could live!

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
—John 15:13


Now Available at Noble Rose Press!

 

P.S. You can expect posts here to be much more regular now that this project is complete!

Cumulus Cloud

Cumulus Clouds

The sky was scattered with cumulus clouds last evening, each one reaching further toward the heavens than the last. A beautiful reminder that the steadfast love of the Lord extends to the heavens.

“Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
Your faithfulness to the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
Your judgments are like the great deep;
man and beast You save, O Lord.”
—Psalm 36:5-6

We waited until golden hour when the warmth of the sunlight is at a peak to get these shots for the Six Angles “Faceless Portrait” theme.

This is an artist at sunset. She loves to paint for the glory of God.

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of
the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
