Harvest...what does it mean to you?

Hello friends!  Hope you are well.
So, as the question says, what does harvest mean to you?  For me, harvest is the British version of Thanksgiving in USA.  It's a time to be thankful for all the blessings we have in our lives.  We have so much and yet we still complain that we haven't enough.  It's a good idea to sit back and count the blessings we have - family and friends, physical, financial, health and spiritual blessings.  Of course for the Christian, the best blessing we have is the free gift of salvation given to us through the Lord Jesus Christ.  Nothing is better than that.  One day, God will gather in all the souls of His saved and redeemed people and we will be at rest for all eternity in His care.  The labours of this life will be over for ever and we will spend eternity worshipping the One who gave His all for us.  What a reason to rejoice and feel blessed! 
Today I have, not a card, but a gift box (inside there is a lovely bar of soap and a bookmark made by my friend Marlou)I made for a friend who has been a great help and support to me recently.  All supplies are SU! (some now retired).
I am entering this into three challenges:
Addicted to CAS - Autumn / Fall
CASology - Harvest
The Paper Players - Tic Tac Toe (ribbon, embossing, banner)

 Aren't these wee gift boxes just the cutest?  Stamps are Chalk Talk with the matching Framelits dies.

Thanks for visiting today.
