Giving Thanks Challenge

As we enter the month of November, I'm going to particpate in the Giving Thanks Challenge hosted by Leah.  A running daily list will be in my sidebar.

As a homeschool assignment and to hopefully ingrain a spirit of thankfulness in the heart of my son, he will be doing a thankful journal for the month also.  Graham Family Ministries offered a free month long journal for children. 

Gratitude in the heart sometimes gets buried under the stresses of life. It takes practice and diligence to seek out and remember our blessings.  But "daily, our Lord loads us with benefits' and what a beautiful act of worship to train ourselves to thank Him for all He has done.

    I'll have to check out the month-long journal as we're also a homeschooling family!
