A few days ago I mentioned that I would show you the other chalkboard wall in our nook. Originally I had told the kids this would be a place for them to create chalk drawings, but then I decided to do something special in this spot for the holidays. Enter the “Thankful Wall”…
As artfully as I could, I wrote the words, “We are thankful…” Throughout this month, I have encouraged my husband & kids to write different things they are thankful for on the wall. It is definitely encouraging to walk through the doors & see that someone is thankful for you!
In addition to writing down things we are thankful for, we are also learning 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, which says, “Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Give thanks no matter what happens. God wants you to thank him because you believe in Christ Jesus.” (NIRV)
We also have a We Are Thankful Jar, which we are trying to get through. It is basically a jar of ways to show you are thankful. Each day in the month of November, you pick something out of the jar & do it.
So far, this month has been incredibly busy, and we haven’t done the best job at reflecting on all we have to be thankful for. Since this may be my last post before Thanksgiving, I want you to know how thankful I am for all of you who read this blog! Just seeing that people are reading makes me happy, but I am especially grateful for those of you that leave encouraging comments! It makes my day!
I hope you & your families have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
