Isaiah 12:4 “Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name. Make known His deeds among the peoples; Make them remember that His name is exalted.”
That verse is one reason I think we need to make our thanks public — blogging, on facebook statuses, or everyday conversations. Let people know what God has done!
I also wanted to share a project with you. I made this felt leaf banner a few years ago. It took a little time to cut out the leaves but it was really easy and we reuse it every year. I Googled “leaf outline”, printed some of them, & cut them out as patterns. Then I cut out the felt and cut slits at the top to run the string through. Let me know if you try it!
