Chapter 10, Page 27, Book 08

SEASONAL DECORATING

Everyone loves acorns! The acorn, which is the seed of an Oak Tree, is filled with creative and protective energy.

When we’ve gathered enough acorns, we bless them. Your blessing can be simple:

Thank you God for our many blessings.
May you continue to bless us throughout the coming year.”

A favorite bible verse or poem can be read, or as a family you could write your own poem! Last year we came up with:
In this acorn is Light
In this acorn is Love
In this acorn is Protection
In this acorn is Prosperity
I am blessed beyond measure
And I share and spread the blessings always…

You’ll Need:
Acorns
Glue
Ribbon
Directions:If needed, glue the top of the acorn on the acorn (these fall off more often than not). Tie a ribbon around it, and leave the ribbon long enough to hang or wear as a necklace. Hang around the house (we like to hang them in the kitchen and by the entryways)


GOOD MORNING !

In my search for something to share with you all, I found the article about the acorns and by concidence I had just bought a cute little set of hanging acorns so I thought I’d share this with you all. I’d never thought of using acorns for decoration before. This could be a craft project for my grandbabes this Thanksgiving. I’ll need to find some acorns. Or maybe some of them could find some and bring them along.

The little ones always seem to enjoy any kind of crafts and are happy to make something as long as we keep it simple, all ages can take part too.

The weekend is over and now I’m off to work once more…

I owe, I owe,
It’s off to work I go…


A new week to enjoy and a new day with new surprises just waiting to be discovered.

It’s going to be a great day!


THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.

Never thought of using acorns before. No oak trees very near us. Mike ask Mike to go the woods and get me some lol. I so agree with that quote about learning.

Ma, never thought of using acorns in that way. I have made wreaths out of pinecones and acorns before. Also helped a resident at the nursing home I work at make one completely out of acorns. Maybe I should gather some now and save them to feed to the birds during those long winter days.

It's been a good year for acorns, and the squirrels in the woods are busy storing them for winter.

Beth said...

We have some big oak trees, but the deer like to eat the acorns, so they keep them cleaned up!

Have a great week!
