A humble fall table…

My fall table isn’t fancy and there are no 
expensive china plates or silverware adorning it. 

There aren’t French linen napkins or a complicated 
setting.  Yet its quiet serenity brings joy to my heart…

I sit here on a Sunday evening trying to describe this simple fall 
table and yet all I can think of is ‘how do I claim this to be my doing 
if the most beautiful items on the table were made by God himself?’ 

The mighty artist.
He is the one who crafted those beautiful little pumpkins 
and with his hands created each petal of the hydrangeas…

Sometimes he uses bright bold colours…
and sometimes soft quiet hues…

 and in His kindness allows us to choose to our liking…

He allows us to choose whether we will give Him the credit for all the 
blessings that we are surrounded by or choose to give ourselves the credit…

Today I say, thank you dear Lord 
for all the beauty you have created.

I give you the credit for all the blessings in my life
 and please allow me to not take it for granted. 

As I set out to simply describe my humble table, I was moved to speak what was in my heart.  And that is, an abundance of gratefulness and love for the one who guards us and loves us, my Lord and savior Jesus. 

Wishing you a beautiful upcoming week.

much love,

    This is very beautiful, Lucy! Beauty is found in the simple things. I love white, you will find color in my accents, but my favorite things are my white things. The small milk pail with fabric and bow is precious with the hint of color in the hydrangeas. Very very pretty!

    Blessings, Nancy

    Hi – so lovely yet so simple. Love it. Found you on The Lettered Cottage. I have been think of doing a fireplace mantle design using whites and off whites, using white pumpkins, burlap, wheat etc. So thanks for giving me a few other ideas!

    Hi Lucy,
    Your beautiful words reminded me of how I should become more thankful at all times. I would like to share one of my favorite sayings with you- “The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings”. Thank you for always sharing with us how your heart truly feels. Sheila S.

    Oh my goodness, that was written as beautifuly as the pictures themselves. I agree with the blogger a short way up that it is so nice to see a blogger aknowledge God and give Him credit for all we have after all He is our provider. Thank you for saying it so well:) May He continue to bless you and your family.
