Count your many blessings

So I realize this post is long overdue! Denver and I have been pretty busy this last month, and will continue to be for the rest of the semester. Happily, we got pretty good midterm grades which means we're doing something right! I know I promised forever ago pictures of our new apartment. Those will be coming soon. For now, I love the fall weather and all the decorations that are all around us. Here's just a quick glimpse of the thanksgiving fever in my apartment.

These blocks were a present from my mom. I sure love them! Thanks mom! :) So is the picture pillow. Every month there is a new quilt picture to put on the pillow, and they make me smile every time I put them up. The vase I filled with these plastic jelly-like acorns and stuff, another gift from my mom. I added the bow myself! I felt pretty domestic.

Well, Thanksgiving is such a wonderful time of year. We have the opportunity to express how grateful we are for all the blessings in our life. Of course, it should always be happening, but how wonderful to have a day that honors it. We should never forget to thank the Lord for all we have, because we owe Him everything because He gave us everything.

Well, that's all for now. I have to study for a test :( Promise my next post won't be in another two months. :)
