A PRAYER FOR A LITTLE HOME ♥ “God bless thee when winds blow; Our home and all we know . . .” (Musica?)
Had to send you this little prayer, so perfect for this time of year, when our hearts overflow with gratitude. “Overhead thy stars O God.”
And in my little house, there’s a new stove-scape 🙂 (I suppose if we can have “table-scapes” we can certainly have “stove-scapes,” right?) I bought the little wooden house this summer at a flea market; I had no idea what I would use it for, but I just couldn’t leave it there. It’s been on a shelf in my studio. Yesterday my eyes fell on it, I said, come with me little house. The miniature string of lights was in my wrapping paper drawer. I stood in the kitchen prying the roof up a crack, and finally got the lights hooked over the “front porch.” Then I found the tree! And put more lights on it!! Just like playing dolls! I fear I will have fake snow around it before the season is over! And tiny reindeer on the roof!
Joe came downstairs, peering at it, going ever closer; when the string of lights registered, he laughed, shook his head, and said, “you’re a genius.” 🙂 It’s the little things in life!! ♥ Makes me think that if you’re looking for a fun table-scape, or mantle-scape, or top-of-the-refrigerator-scape, you might want to try raiding the toy box!
Just wanted to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving with the prettiest prayer I know!! Because we are so lucky! We have each other!! And so much more. Our own “little houses” that we love, filled with the light of our own making. xoxo
