Giving Thanks

I have really been concentrating on this statement "Giving Thanks" lately. There are a lot of pros and cons as to whether or not to be on Facebook but I use it as an opportunity to be a positive, encouraging "voice". Most of the time I share scripture or encouraging words I have had read from other sources. At the beginning of November, most people begin a daily "I am thankful for . . ." I am on Day 6 and when I get past the basics it makes me really stop and think about the things I am thankful for. I start looking at things that I often take for granted.

I am using the "Giving Thanks" stamp from the Simon Says Stamp October 2013 Seasons of Thanks Card Kit an awful lot on my cards because I am giving thanks for these individuals who have encouraged me and inspired me with their friendship.

"I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you."
Genesis 28:15


  1. Both of these are so lovely, Pam! The embossed dots add the nicest but subtle texture!!

  2. Your little autumn scene is so sweet- love the little squirrel! And I love the colors of the second card- so pretty! The embossed dots give great texture to both!
