Thankful Rejoicing!

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good. His love endures forever. 1 Chronicles

Prayer, Praise and Paper Craft Night is coming up this Friday, Oct. 7 at Christian Paper Crafts. There will be four challenges announced on the hour beginning at 8 pm EST. Preceding the challenges, will be a time of prayer and online fellowship. You can click on the blinky or visit Christian Paper Crafts for more details.

This project was prepared as a sample for one of the challenges and meets one or two others. But I can't tell you which challenges since they are surprises! I had this rustic candle holder and thought it would be a great gift or centerpiece, if I just added a seasonal tag!

So. . .I crafted one for each of the holidays that are quickly approaching where we might reflect upon the mighty works of the Lord. . .thanksgiving for His abundant provision. . .of the Lord Jesus Christ, whose birth we celebrate a month later! Thankful rejoicing!
