Happy Thanksgiving: A Gardener's Thanksgiving Day Centerpiece

Today's centerpiece was harvested from my garden: broom corn; hickory and clethra leaves, previously soaked in glycerin and water; and Molina grass, for the binding.

I give thee thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing thy praise; I bow down toward thy holy temple and give thanks to thy name for thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness; for thou hast exalted above everything thy name and thy word. On the day I called, thou didst answer me, my strength of soul thou didst increase. All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, for they have heard the words of thy mouth; and they shall sing of the ways of the LORD, for great is the glory of the LORD. -Psalm 138:1-5

King David certainly knew a thing or two about giving thanks to God at all times and in all circumstances!

You've made a beautiful centerpiece :)

I'm having a Christmas giveaway on my blog and would love it if you could pop by and enter :)

Love the scripture verse...and your centerpiece is lovely! How nice that it came from your garden. I had enough Calendulas still blooming for small Thanksgiving bouquet.
