T is for Thanksgiving 2014

Salutations!  To me, Thanksgiving is a day to watch the Macy's parade, set the Thanksgiving table-scape, share a meal with loved ones, watch the Texas' Aggies play (Gig-em!), and most importantly, praise the Lord for all the blessings that He's bestowed upon me.  This year, I am thankful for:

Thank you for a beautiful and inspirational post. I love your art work. Love the tag and also the 'solitud' page.
The verse from Psalm 100 is very appropriate and as a whole with the pumpkin photo would make a beautiful Thanksgiving card. (I didn't know you gave each other cards for Thanksgiving)
Have a great week,
