~ Autumn is inspiring some nesting decor ~
Time for Feathering the Nest with Candles
~ To add some sparkle and glitter and light ~
To delight our hearts to sing of the beauties of Fall
Renewing our HOPE
Inspiring a WISH
And setting our dreams to flight
May Our Nests
Be ever near the King
who loves us with an everlasting love
~ filling Autumn's splendor ~
with His very Presence
For you are of more value than many sparrows

You are onto something new, my talented friend! Your creativity is without end! My favorites are the pear candle and the "nest by His throne." It's so cool that I can keep up on your art via the internet :)
