Blessings Box


We did this craft about a month ago in my MOPS group. I thought it was really cool, and being that today is November 1st, I've got Thanksgiving on the brain, so I thought this was fitting. It's good to remind ourselves and each other of things that we are thankful for. I myself, will be keeping this box around for years to come. The idea is simply this: to write down on a piece of paper, something you are thankful for. In other words, your blessings. It can be something general, or something that may have touched you dearly one day. The other day, I was just chatting away with Kayla, and I realized how blessed I am to have a little buddy to talk to , as I am pretty lonely these days with David being gone so much. On Thanksgiving, we will be opening the box and reading all of the papers.....

This is a great encouragment, and a very pleasing thing to do for the glory of God. I need to get a box, because it would be FULL of things that I am thankful for! I love you so dearly, and can't wait to see you in just a short time.

In Him,
Lauren
