Next week is Thanksgiving and I thought I would share an activity that you and your family can share over the holiday. This was provided in the bulletin of our church this Sunday and I thought other families may enjoy.
On Thanksgiving Day…
As you gather around the table with friends and family, spend a few moments focused on your blessings and express your gratitude to God for them.
Ephesians 5:20 “…always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father.”
Philippians 4:6-8 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”
Share a couple of things you are grateful for this Thanksgiving.
“Dear God, we thank You for Your many blessings this year – for our family, our friends and Your provision. We set aside this day, especially, to give thanks to You. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.”
May you and your family know and experience the great love that God has for you this holiday! – Jeff
