A Tree of Thanks

img_0425

I sent the first 80 digits on a quest in the rain.   They searched high and low for the perfect branch for our first “Tree of Thanks”.  The girls helped me plant the tree and outline the leaves.  Then they all put up their first thought of thanks.  Every night at dinner we will add to the tree and discuss what the bible says about being thankful.  Of course, it is encouraged that if they think of something they are thankful for through the day they can add to it too.  

Thanksgiving is a holiday that began in America for us to give thanks to God for His blessings upon our lives.  Here are some verses to get you started:

  • Psalm 100
  • Psalm 9:1
  • Psalm 50:23
  • Psalm 92:1
  • Psalm 97:12
  • Philippians 4:6
