I loved what Angela wrote yesterday about Being Intentionally Thankful.
Senate Chaplain Peter Marshall prayed, “Let not feasting, football and festivity end in forgetfulness of God.”
A few years back our family began a Thanksgiving Thankfulness journal. We pull it out on Thanksgiving day and each of us share what we are thankful for while I journal it. It is adorable to look back at the Sunday School teachers we have long forgotten, the favorite stuffed toy of the year, CD, or food that our children named. Places we went in the past year, extended family members who blessed us and simple things we usually take for granted made the list.
And then I wonder, why don’t we do this more often as a family than JUST at Thanksgiving? Are you looking to express more gratitude in the new year? Did you know that there is a Gratitude Community? Ann Voskamp of A Holy Experience lists every Monday what she is thankful for and there are a community of women who join her there. Be intentional about giving thanks.
Psalm 92:1 “It is good to give thanks to the Lord And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High.”
