Ecclesiastes 3 -

At this time of the year I become a sentimental fool - which really is rare for me, I'm not one to dwell on sentiments; I'd rather explore them! But I'm always pulled to Ecclesiastes 3, thinking about a time and a season and how as the year draws to a close I am grateful for the abundance I have, and the peace I have going into the most giving time of the year.

As well, I'm touched by the song, Come, ye Thankful People, Come. Harvest, gathering in, bringing home, safely gathered, winter storms brewing -

Both of these pieces remind me that for everything there is a season - a fine lesson to learn.
In fact, I made this stitchery a few years ago, just to take in the goodness of Ecclesiastes and harvest and peace and home. Not terrible viewable here, but here it is, nonetheless.

Happy Thanksgiving -
