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

“Gloves (like socks), while born to be part of a pair, often end their days in lonely solitude, separated from their mates by the forces of the universe that conspire at every turn to pull them apart. Alone, they sadly serve little purpose (aside from the occasional show biz appearance for only the most sparkling among them), and are left to languish in the backs of a drawers and bottoms of closets — that is, if they’re not disposed of all together. Ah… but it’s a new day. Crafter and author Miyako Kanamori has a plan and she’s ready to share it!”

For full instructions please visit The Storque or check out the book it came from and more fun projects in Happy Gloves: Charming Softy Friends Made from Colorful Gloves by Miyako Kanamori.
