Give thanks in ALL things

The jumble of fall colors - the dried hydrangea

Stacked books- felted pumpkin
 and the texture of hydrangeas
It's the contrasts that I love about Fall-
the berries, the gourds
add wire and vintage crochet--
it delights my spirit
It is truly the herald to "nesting"
 of gathering close and
holding near
And on the kitchen wall is the canvas
made with
paper napkins and a verse our family
clung to six years ago this weekend.

How do you rejoice always?
In everything give thanks?

it is simply trust
then obedience
then waiting

 to see what God works,

creates and redeems-
 six years later.

And in THAT-
we too
give thanks.
