Thankful Harvest November 2015 Blog Train Freebie!!!

Its that time again for another wonderful Pixel Scrapper Blog Train!! Where did October go? So many things have gone on for us in October that the time just FLEW by:) Lots of fun decorating, fall pumpkins, cute owls and ghosties, and our Annual Fall Fellowship Halloween Party with food, costumes, trick or treating hay rides, a bon fire with smores and whatever else we can conjure up for that night (coming up this Saturday as I write this)!! I can't wait:)  So yeah, the month is pretty much over, and November is here in a couple of days! November....the month for reflecting on "Thankfulness"! What are we truly Thankful for? My mom gave us a scare a couple of weeks ago when she was in the hospital again with serious heart problems. She is so young, in her early 60's. She had "another" surgery and we are praying all goes well for her as this is really the last thing they can do for her (she is no longer a candidate for open heart surgery), so they put a stent in and are just hoping for the best. As I traveled to Mississippi to be there, I thought about how fragile life really is, how fragile she really is. I pray for her and just have to leave her in God's hands, and that gives me peace because I know He loves her and is always there with her. I am TRULY thankful for that! That Jesus loves us beyond time and space, beyond our life here on Earth, beyond our past (all of our mistakes and sins)! That if we simply believe on Him, believe on His name, we will be saved! So simple, yet so profound! So powerful and so sweet! There is nothing more that I could possibly be so truly thankful for!! As we go through the month of  November, let us really think about what we have
to be thankful for and then thank our almighty God! I am also thankful for the AWESOME Pixel Scrapper November 2015 Blog Train this month!! The theme is "Thankful Harvest" and the colors are just so pretty together! I have to admit, It was killing me not to have a brown in the color palette, and I wasn't sure how things would look without the traditional autumn brown. But, I was pleasantly surprised at how pretty the colors worked together and that I really didn't need the brown after all. It had plenty of neutral and contrasting colors with the tan and black:) So, anyway, here is my part:

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and  admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
