Orange You Thankful

Kim Biegacki


These are winners of the Thanksgiving "Orange" challenges that we are currently having in The Power of Orange group. Just scroll down and in the directions you will see the list.

Thanks again to Pam Ellington and Glenda Moore for their creative idea to start the challenges.
My Thanksgiving Table Display called "Just A Pinch of Orange Love" is for The Power of Orange group in Town Square & my tribute to Just a Pinch Recipe Club.

Not to fancy, I chose natural earthy materials and this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy and have a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends.

~~~Just A Pinch Recipe Club Crew:
Thank you so much for this wonderful place where we all can meet and share recipes, friendship and love. You have blessed my heart most deeply.
God's Blessings to you all.

    Thanksgiving Day Thoughts

    Dear Lord on this Thanksgiving day,
    We ask that you come near us.
    We sit before a lovely feast,
    And pray that you will hear us.

    Our table shines with many a dish,
    Oranges, yams and berry.
    For everyone, their fondest wish
    Is that these moments tarry.

    Steaming rolls and pumpkin pie
    Golden turkey and gravy hot,
    Potatoes and stuffing piled so high.
    We thank you Lord for all we've got.

    This year is different from the last,
    Our lives have twisted, turned and tossed.
    So many days and weeks have passed,
    We've gained some things and others lost.

    But still we thank Thee for this food
    And life and love and all things good.
