November: An Invitation to Gratitude Series {Celebration in Gold}

Subtle hues and neutrals rest calmly in the rooms of our living.
Celebration merits a touch of gold to herald our gratitude.
The dinner table festive in glided pumpkins amid hydrangea past its season.
Around the house, dry arrangements in appreciation of stems gone to seed.
Gathered pinecones, some whitewashed for contrast.

In a few hours aromas will be heavy, candles will be lit, and heart felt prayers will rise.
May your Thanksgiving be blessed.

“From the Fulness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another.” 
John 1:16 

“Thanks is the highest form of thought 
and gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”

C.K. Chesterton

  1. Hi Lisa. I love the G.K Chesterton quote and the gold theme you have in your home for this season. It speaks of royal grace which we are thankful beneficiaries of. Blessed to stop by from #WeekendWhispers. Happy Thanksgiving to you! :)

    1. "royal grace" ... such beautiful phrase for God's love. I'm blessed by your thoughts.
