Idea 7: Thanksgiving as a Stick Figure











Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart (Proverbs 3:3 ESV).

November lends itself to gratitude. All over Facebook, my friends are posting items they are thankful for. No one will raise an eyebrow at the extra lengths people will go this month to express appreciation. It’s what November is all about.

Idea 7 comes from Jen over at eighteen25 and puts a new twist on the concept of showing gratitude.

In Jen’s words:

“Two years ago we started our book of thanks. Every Thanksgiving everyone takes a turn writing what they are grateful for in it.”

Jen’s family invites everyone at the Thanksgiving meal–guests and children included–to sign the book. A photo is snapped of the group and inserted into the pages. The book is then kept as a momento and reviewed for years to come. Check out the site to learn more.

What a great way to document the goodness of God over decades!

Time to find the right book …
