This is the season to be thankful. With Thanksgiving done and Christmas on the way, i find myself trying to teach my children the real meaning of it all. I can see that the social world has played a big part in what they think its all about. So it was time to take a lesson in Thanksgiving and we will do the same for Christmas.

We started a new tradition with the children the night before. Explaining the reason for Thanksgiving, what started it all, how God plays a part in it and how to truly be thankful.
We learned about the Pilgrims, Squanto, harvesting and Plymouth rock. We learned verses that talked about being thankful and how important it is to tell God thanks everyday. We read a book all about prayer called, My Thanksgiving Prayer. Learning how family's pray and letting the kids learn a way all for themselves was special. I think the best thing of it all was seeing verses that spoke about thankfulness.


Some of the verses we learned were;
Colossians 3:15 (NAS)And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.
*being thankful for having Christ a part of your life is number one.*


Colossians 4:2 (NAS)Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NAS)
in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.Knowing Christ and making him apart of our lives has made such a difference. Knowing the true meaning about Thanksgiving made it even more splendid. I hope you all had a wonderful blessed Holiday. From my family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!!

  1. Great idea to incorporate the verses! So often Thanksgiving loses its focus on thanks.

    Blessings,
