Decorating with Joy and Goodness

 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.  Galatians 5:22,23

I am fortunate to review a product from DaySpring which is a Christian division of Hallmark.  Their products are inspiringly (is that a word?) awesome!   It was a pleasant surprise when this mango wood pedestal arrived in a huge box.  Pictures can be deceiving.  My children love it as much as I do. 

This has been an impactful year for thankfulness.  My  Gratitude journal has changed my perspective and opened my eyes wide.  I am more grateful for the ordinary.   The ordinary I never really noticed as a gift before.

I think that is why I liked this pedastal so much.    It is a simple reminder of thankful living. 



I love the quote:  "To live with joy is to see God's goodness."

Cause and effect.
As we put our focus on God's goodness, joy results. 

This pedastal would make an awesome serving piece for parties, Thanksgiving, Christmas, as a centerpiece for your table, or a gift.   It would look lovely with bath supplies, Easter eggs, fruit, a poinsettia, or ornaments in it as well.  With simple lines and the message, it really is an beautiful piece of art.
