Welcome to Lovebug Scrapbooking's "INSPIRE US!" blog hop!! Our blog hops
take place on the last Saturday of every month. Thanks so much for joining

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking
place, please go back to Lovebug Scrapbooking and start the Hop. You won't
want to miss all the inspiration from our members :-)

Our theme for September is "THANKSGIVING".

I love Thanksgiving :-) We normally spend the day together as a family. We cook a big turkey dinner. Sometimes we'll go on a hike, to get out and enjoy the nice fall weather.

Today I thought I'd share some Thanksgiving quotes -- these are so inspiring and would be great on a scrapbook layout or card.

~ Remember God's bounty in the year. String the pearls of His favor. Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light! Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude! Henry Ward Beecher

~ Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. W.J. Cameron

~ For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
Ralph Waldo Emerson

~ A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues. Cicero

~ Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart. Seneca

~ We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. Thornton Wilder

~ So once in every year we throng
Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart.
Arthur Guiterman

~ Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. W.T. Purkiser

~ If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice. Meister Eckhart

This blog hop will run from today, September 25th until Tuesday, September 28th. We will be drawing for winners on September 29th on the Lovebug blog.

Now, HOP over to Tania's blog!

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
