Abundant Blessings All Around

As old hymn board repurposed as an Anniversary collage as a gift for our 25th Anniversary.
The blessing of a long and loving marriage.
A photo from a visit to Las Vegas to Daughter Laura and husband--  Love the old window with photos of parents and all grandparents. That was a tribute to the marriage heritage they were being given on their wedding day-  The blessing of long term marriages from generation to generation.
A vintage screen door with pearl buttons hot glued onto  the dividers and twine strung between the sides with clipped up vintage photos of European travels.  The blessing of ingenuity.
The table  top was an old leather table top that my friend Gloria "married"
to the bottom of a full length mirror.
 The new piece holds the vintage cubbies found in Chicago
and now resides in daughter Sara's Towson apartment.
 The blessing of creative and crafty friends.
Vintage canning jars reused to store like things in my studio.
The blessing of recycle and a mom who saved everything.
The joy filled day of 2 dads performing the marriage of their children this summer.
 The blessing of faith-filled families joined together.
A mother who wrote with deep understanding of her relationship with her Lord.
 Her book of poetry-- Lift your Eyes to the Hills.
 The blessing of a faithful mother.

The photos may be random but they serve as a small picture
 of all that there is to be thankful for today.
All gifts, all undeserved and all appreciated in my life.
May the Lord by glorified in how I use all the things
 that He has bestowed me with in my life.
