Happy Thanksgiving! What a gorgeous fall day of sunshine and gorgeous fall colors!! I am so grateful for a boatload of things but in particular I am thankful for my health and the health of my family. Every day is a gift. Every day. The difficult ones and the outstanding ones. Last year at this time, I was in so much physical pain I wasn't sure at times how I was going to make it through another day. I know the Lord carried me through those times and I am so thankful that He is there always. No matter what. No matter where I am or what I'm going through. Today I am thankful for this verse:
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
I love the basic message of this verse. "God will be with you wherever you go." It's one of the first verses I taught all three of my kids since they were tiny. In this journey called life, I believe I can face anything because of that one truth.
Speaking of basics, the cards that I've posted are something I put together for a few teachers who completely blessed me and surprised the socks out of me! I came home one day and this fabulous, tall tree/plant (you can see it peeking in the corner) was on my step!! It was beautiful. They had gotten together and purchased it for me out of gratitude. I was shocked! Who does that? It's definitely the most beautiful (and biggest) plant I've ever received. Here's to hoping I can keep it alive. : )
So, I had a wee bit of time to put together a few quick thank you cards and this is where I love coming back to the basics. All I had to use on these cards was Spellbinders Labels One to get my simple message across. There are some gorgeous new dies coming out (believe me!!!) but it's great when you can stick to the basics and still come out with a pretty creation.
I hope and pray that you are finding lots to be thankful for. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog. I'm thankful for you...my blog friends!
