Hope everyone had a great week!
Did you sit at Jesus' feet this week? I am sure you spend a lot of time looking at tablescapes, I hope you spent at least a moment with the one who created you? It is important. What we put in our hearts and what we think about matters. Talking with the Lord needs to be as necessary and consistent as breathing. We must practice His presence in everything. Are you careful about what you read, watch on TV, music you listen to and people you hang out with? Do they encourage you in Godly ways? Did you know that what you allow to seep deep into your soul will affect your love relationship with Jesus and your relationship with those around you.
When we neglect our relationship with the Lord, he doesn't give up on us. (thank heavens!) He tries to get our attention any way He can. Sometimes the only way He can do that is through pain. C.S. Lewis says "Pain is God's megaphone." Try to spend some time with Him today. He's worth it! Your worth it! Spend time with our Father who loves you.
Well, I have struggled again this week....
I have to do a tablescape????.....No that's not the reason....
I hate...HEAR ME......HATE......Orange!!! I have struggled likeing this color since my grandmother made me an afgan in the 70's of orange, rust, gold and green! I have hated orange forever! It is so yuck to me....I know, I know.. some of you love it. I have read your posts... but not me!
Every fall I struggle trying to stay away from that color as much as I can. I try to bring in golds, brown and red. Any color but Orange!
Don't get me wrong I like fall...just not Orange!!!
Soooo, I have to try and make everything look fallish without the Orange. Make no mistake, I do have orange pumpkins. You saw my centerpeice for my kitchen table. I just think that's enough! PUMPKINS! If you look back at my centerpeice I used some red apples!
I have to scour the stores for fall decorations with more red than orange. It does make life a little difficult but it is the HUNT that I love! Isn't that the truth!!!
I haven't decorated too much this year because we are selling our house and I don't want to offend anyone. Notice I did not say I put out Halloween decorations, I said Fall. I don't do Halloween decorations. Although, I do give out candy to the neighborhood children and my neighbors are all invited to dinner! It is a fun time!
So are you dying to see my tablescape??????
It is simple but NO... VERY LITTLE ORANGE!!!!
We are in the family room at the round table.
The pumpkin plates are from Walmart last year. I use them as dessert plates but here they are used as salad plates. The napkins I bought at Goodwill.
My centerpeice is a white Hobby Lobby pumpkin, leaves, apples and beaded fruit from The Experience in Schenectady, New York.

See, I told you not too much orange!
