Our Thanksgiving

“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.” - Psalm 136: 1,26

"When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you." - Deuteronomy 8:10

Let us thank God heartily as often as we pray that we have His Spirit in us to teach us to pray. Thanksgiving will draw our hearts out to God and keep us engaged with Him;
it will take our attention from ourselves and
give the Spirit room in our hearts.
- Andrew Murray

‎"The root of joy is gratefulness...It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful." ~ David Steindl-Rast

I LOVE the way your table looks - how elegant, yet fun. The small pumpkins add such a beautiful, simple touch. And look at how big Emersyn is getting... I really need to read blogs more often; before I know it, she'll be a teenager! :) Your little girl is so precious -- I hope you all had such a wonderful holiday. :)

Your table was beautiful! I loved the idea with the little pumpkins for place cards. And of course, the picture of Em with her head in the bowl, what a cutie :)

Excuse me. Is this the Thanksgiving table of the girl who SAYS THAT SHE IS NOT CRAFTY?? You are no longer allowed to say that because now we all know that it is completely NOT true! Seriously though your place looks fabulous and I am so impressed with your hostess-ing skills! And I love how that last pic just goes to show that nobody was taking themselves too seriously :) What great memories you are creating!!
