A few years ago we started a blessing jar family tradition. Throughout the entire year, we write down things or events for which we are thankful and stuff them in the jar. Then on Thanksgiving Day, we empty the jar and read aloud all the reminders of God’s faithfulness. It’s a great way to reflect on the previous year and so fun to read the variety of entries. We’ve had everything from defeating serious health issues to thanking God for McDonalds. Albeit on very different scopes; both are worthy praises.
It’s been such a wonderful way to instill a sense of gratitude in our children.
Do you have a favorite family tradition that’s centered around Thanksgiving? If not, why not give the blessings jar a try. It makes for some really awesome Thanksgiving Day reading.
Hope you and your family have a wonderful and blessed holiday!
