“And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17 (NKJV)
In the first quarter of 2021, I started a “Give Thanks Jar” at home where you can write a little note of thanksgiving any time and drop it in. No one was allowed to read any of the notes till the last day of the year. A great idea to instill thankfulness, especially in a day and age where my kids can be so self entitled at times. Myself included!
I got a plain jar from the AS-IS section at Ikea and customised it little with my trusted Sharpie markers. The thanksgiving corner includes the customised jar, stacked of plain coloured paper and a pen.
We finally unveiled the jar just before the girls’ bedtime yesterday. Taking turns drawing out a note and reading them aloud. Much to be thankful for as we review the notes and recalling events.
Ending the year with an awesome gift of God‘s opened door; I passed my RES exam!
