Always Thankful





From hungry deer grazing on acorns...


To Geese taking flight ~



I'm constantly amazed at the beauty within sight!



As the one who creates hills of  velvet...



Waterfalls...




And calming waves at sea...




Places Autumn still life...

 



Adorns the ground with fallen leaves...

 





Makes me giggle at ducks frollicking...

 



Hedgeapples on display...





And the sweetness of a stroke across the horse's mane...




All of nature like a painting...

each wonderfully made!




Glowing vibrantly on autumn colors....





As He sets another sun...




And shines His light in a giant harvest moon...





Reminds me of His constant presence...





Unconditional love...








And showers me with grace!


Sets my table with abundance...


As I look into the eyes of each loving face!


I give thanks!

I give thanks!

I give thanks!

“In everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:18)

Reading through your post felt like sitting down at an extraordinary feast table -- with my eyes scanning over His spectacular Grace and bounty.

His love, and our thanksgiving, can take so many forms.

We are blessed.
