That means that the Pilgrims are coming to Shady Acres!
I found this candle/warmer at Yankee Candle years ago.
It was stuffed up on a shelf, back out of the way.
With a sale price and a discount coupon, I think I paid all of $8.00 for it.
It is really my favorite.
When we were in Ohio at Raph and Regina’s wedding,
I found this little pilgrim couple at the “Amish Flea Market”
and decided to buy it instead of lunch.
I try to limit my purchases of pilgrims (and Manger scenes)
to no more than one a year, and this is my purchase for 2008.
I truly love the Harvest Season.
This season of Grateful Praise doesn’t get enough attention (or celebration).
Which is why I like to get an early start.
And this morning I give praise for my family, my friends.
For sweet memories, and joyful anticipation.
For all that I’ve been given, and all that I am privileged to give.
For a home and a house to put it in.
For the joy of sins forgiven.
For the peace of today in the provision of my Heavenly Father.
And for the hope of Heaven that keeps me mindful of how tenuous our time here.
For those of us who believe, we really are pilgrims here.
Dear friends, we DARE NOT forget!
