Thanksgiving Blessings

Kelli at There is no place like home is having a fun and fabulous contest this week- sharing our Thanksgiving plans, decorations, menus, cleaning schedules (well that part might not be so fun), and plans to celebrate a day of Thankfulness.

We've been studying poetry this past summer and fall and memorizing a poem a week. This week we are memorizing a poem/prayer by William Bradford.
"Thus out of small beginnings greater things have grown by His hand Who made all things out of nothing, and gives being to all things that are: and as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light enkindled here has shone to many, yea, in a sense, to our whole nation; let the glorious name of Jehovah have all the praise. ~Wm. Bradford, circa 1630
KB has been creating pockets of decor around the house. Here is the front porch welcome that resulted from Sunday's burst of creativity. Wouldn't you agree that she is talented?

I didn't realize before how much that broom wanted to be there - I'm glad you bought it a couple of years ago!!
It'll be a real cozy welcome this winter :) We should put x-mas lights around the windows - on the porch - this year - that would REALLY brighten it up :)
