For many, the month of November is a month to practice gratitude, as most prepare for Thanksgiving. As for me, gratitude is a lifestyle I am trying to make happen. What sparked the idea of this post is the latest book I am reading through; called "Choosing Gratitude", by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. This book has completely changed my mindset and I would love to share this quote with you:
“I have learned that in every circumstance that comes my way, I can choose to respond in one of two ways: I can whine or I can worship! And I can't worship without giving thanks. It just isn't possible. When we choose the pathway of worship and giving thanks, especially in the midst of difficult circumstances, there is a fragrance, a radiance, that issues forth out of our lives to bless the Lord and others.”
― Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Choosing Gratitude
I love this point that Nancy makes. You just read this book and your response is like "YES! Amen!" And we can be and SHOULD BE grateful and worshiping in all things! That's abounding in thanksgiving.
So many thankful thoughts kept flooding my mind this morning thinking about my new book and this post, and how I might tie this in to interior design too! And then, an idea ran across my mind: What if I tried this year to decorate with what I already have? It would be so much better to save money and it would save time for other things. Read below for what I came up with!

So that's all for now! Come back soon for Christmas ideas!
