Like many Christian women I enjoy reading Ann Voskamp’s blog, A Holy Experience. I don’t particularly envision myself becoming a prairie wife or mother of 6, but for her commitment to grace and thanksgiving I find myself coming back over and over. Her ability to see art in the everyday, and to (as she wrote about in her book) live right where she was placed are inspiring.
When she posted her Thanksgiving Tree project earlier in November, I knew I wanted to do my own version. Rather than print out the well-chosen verses she provides, my husband and I used scraps of paper left over from other projects in order to detail just a few of the many blessings we’ve been showered with this year alone. I cut out 18 leaves, but honestly, I could have cut out 4x more and we’d still be filling them out.
