Counting Blessings

Thanksgiving 8_edited-1

Uncustomary for me, I’m getting a little ahead seasonally today!

A few little projects finished to be ready for Thanksgiving…


…a page all ready for filling up with my many, many blessings…

And this beautiful vintage label used to celebrate Thanksgiving 2012, surrounded by the words of one of my very favorite, very old, hymns—written and sung by the Pilgrims themselves…

And a little card all ready to share…

…complete with a bunch of “wheat” from our yard. 

I really am so very blessed—and so very grateful.

  6. well, that post just jarred a memory! A very old hymn I knew from childhood came to mind: "Count your blessings name them one by one. Count your blessings see what God has done. Count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your many blessings see what God has done!" It's a catchy tune and I just realized the musical memory may be better than the words when you read it but I bet it's on YouTube: Tennessee Ernie Ford sang it! Smile.
