The Pumpkin Patch Trip is a ritual in our home, but not because we are getting ready for Halloween... We LOVE autumn at our house, the bounty that surrounds us: from garden to kitchen, from school to church. It is a time of thanksgiving. What says "bountiful" like a field full of ripe pumpkins, and children picking them with eyes that are bigger than their arms!?!?
God's love for us is bountiful, as should be our thankfulness towards Him!
2 Corinthians 9:15

Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.

2 Corinthians 2:14
But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him.
always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
