Thanksgiving  Reflection…

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him   with music and song. Psalm 95:2

During a recent 12 day trip through New England to photograph the famous fall colors we were a struck by the incredible beauty and serenity . Driving through the Berkshire mountains or traveling winding roads through the countryside of Vermont, the trees stand shimmering in the sun or sparkling in the dancing light of raindrops, an unimaginable array of color.

As we set up our tripods and prepared to shoot a particularly colorful scene with sugar maples reflected in a small pond out in the middle of the New York countryside, others began to pull over to photograph it as well.  A man  came over to tell me he drives by this pond every single day and always thinks to himself, ” I should really stop and take a picture of that-it’s so  beautiful”….but he never had, until now.

His comment made me think about how often I fail to appreciate beautiful and praise worthy things that surround me and how often I forget to thank the one who provides them…

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. Hebrews 12:28
Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift. 2 Corinthians 9:15
Give thanks in all circumstances…1 Thessalonians 5:18
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good His love endures forever. Psalm 136
…whatever is true  whatever is noble, whatever   is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if   anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things. Philippians   4:8
…he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my   soul…Psalm 23 :2,3

Wishing  you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving!
