Not Just For Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day 2019 is behind us, but we need to be certain we do not leave giving thanks behind us. We need to continue to model to our grandchildren/children what it looks like to live a grateful and thankful life 365 days a year. 

It is essential we live our lives as people who thank and praise God when we experience blessings. It is also essential we live our lives as people who thank and praise God when we experience challenges and difficult times in our lives. We need to model these things all year; not just for Thanksgiving Day.

One simple way you might do this is by involving everyone at your dining table all year long in sharing at least one thing for which they are thankful - you may do this in place of a "prayer" or in addition, but the giving of thanks is most certainly a prayer! I'm sure there have been many times when God smiled at the things for which my little grandsons gave thanks! I know I have.

Find a way to engage your grandchildren/children in giving thanks and praising God all year long - and model it in the way you live as well.
