I am excited to share with you my first Inpiration Layout as a new member of the Scrapping Everyday Miracles Design Team !
This month's main challenge is called The Miracle Of Fall-check out the details and what you could win here: Challenge #21.
Fall is my favorite time of the year and the most beautiful season here in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts!
It is inspired by my favorite Godspell song,"All Good Gifts".
The lyrics are:
We plow the fields and scatter the good seed on the land..
But it is fed and watered by God's almighty hand..
He sends us snow in winter, the warmth to swell the grain...
The breezes and the sunshine, and soft refreshing rain...
We thank thee then, O Father, for all things bright and good,
The seedtime and the harvest, our life our health our food,
No gifts have we to offer for all thy love imparts
But that which thou desirest, our humble thankful hearts!
All good gifts around us
Are sent from Heaven above..
Then thank the Lord, thank the Lord for all his love..
The picture is of 3 of my children and my adopted daughter's biological sister that she was reunited with last fall. The spot is our favorite pumpkin patch in Vermont where they have have been coming since my oldest was about 5. I love how the layout of the pumpkins resembles a cross! As I look at this, I am thankful for so much of the beauty and bounty of the season and how much God has blessed me with. Simple traditions like this weave a tapestry across the years of watching my family grow and change, yet remaining connected. I would love to see your creaions and what blessings you have this fall season!
I leave you with a video of this lovely song of praise and thanksgiving...
Have a blessed day!
