Weekly Header Challenge - Thank You

It's time for the Weekly Header Challenge!

Theme ~ Thank You

I wish I had one single image to portray this theme of thanksgiving!  I think this is the highest number of images I've posted for these weekly challenges, but I narrowed it down as much as I could.  I started thinking about what to be thankful for, in a year filled with Fernando's job layoff and back surgery, my own back problems, no money to spend on Christmas, and many other "bad" things that have happened.

I decided that this sunrise is a good way to show that hope does not disappoint, and that as surely as the sun rises, we are in His care.  A quote about thanksgiving in all circumstances:

Be anxious for nothing,
but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7 NASB

Thank You for hope!

  1. You certainly got this theme covered Christine, Great shots, and a beauty sunrise.

  2. My favorite pics: Flag, Fireworks & Garden Harvest. It is good to give thanks to the Lord.

    Christine, thanks for adding your talents to the Headbangers. I appreciate the fine quality of your portraiture and still life photos.

  3. Indeed, when we pause to look back on friends, pets, home, food... we have much to be thankful for. You have shown us many! We learned earlier this month that we cannot take for granted that these will always be with us.

  4. Thank you for a beautiful post Christine, you did a great job of showing your thanks.

  5. Love the post. A great long list. I want your garden--and some of the help as well--lol.
