Praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord, O my soul.
I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
We’ve been counting our blessings these past few weeks. Counting, recording and displaying.
Simple handmade leaves and pen are at the ready for anyone who thinks of a blessing.
When a leaf becomes full on both sides it joins the rest. Strung across across our sliding glass door on a length of jute.
Our thankfulness garland is filling up. Reminding us of the Lord’s unending blessings. We truly are blessed. And through this display, made by our hands and hearts, I am hoping my children grasp deeply the Savior’s love for us.
Want to make your own? It is SO simple. Gather some fall colored construction paper. Spray it with water, just till damp. Crumple the paper into a ball and scrunch it good. Undo the paper and lay flat till dry. Trace leaves on the paper and cut out. That’s it, you now have paper leaves with a neat texture to record your blessings on!
