Our God, We Give You Thanks!

Our God we give you thanks and praise your glorious name. 1 Corinthians 29:13

ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #180

This week the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team challenges YOU to "Circle or Square It!" and your project must incorporate more than three circles or squares, NOT including layering!
To make the challenge even more rewarding, we will be giving out a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! And, if you use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing one to two creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. All submissions must be added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. EST. Complete details are available on the ODBD blog.
Please take a bit of time to visit my fellow challenge team members' blogs, you'll be blessed!

Project Details

With Thanksgiving approaching, it's time to get my table decorations in order that amid all of the food, we might be reminded as to Who and what is really most important. Of course, we are to be thankful at all times, not just one day a year, rejoicing in the Lord's provision and watch care, even when things aren't going as we expect. It's not as if the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient Creator, who is even now, sustaining all things, is surprised or caught off guard. He has foreordained whatsoever shall come to pass for the eternal good of His people, and His ultimate glory. So, for those who are trusting in Christ, let us be quick to praise Him with grateful hearts for He has given us the greatest blessing of all! 

The basis for this project is a 6x6 tile that I recruited into service as the background and backing.
