Today I want to start a little project for the month, a project of gratitude. Every day for the rest of the month, I am going to share something that I am grateful for. There will be projects and videos, but lots of thankfulness. And I want you to join me in this! For every post this month (November), I want you to tell me what you are thankful for, starting today. And at the end of the month, I will draw three names from all the comments and I will send you a box full of great goodies that I am fortunate to have extras of. Which is one of so many things I have to be grateful for!!
For today, I want to direct you to the Spellbinders blog. In October, Stacey Caron (owner and creator of Spellbinders) and Kim Hupke (Education Director) went on a missions trip to Haiti with Global Family Philanthropy. (Please read Part ONE, part TWO, part THREE) Their stories and images are moving. Moving to tears. It makes you stop and think. What can I possibly find to complain about? I don’t want to clean the house? I need to be thankful to have a house and to have the privilege to clean it. I have running water, and access to medical and dental care. My son can eat three meals a day and have clean clothes. I need to give thanks for that which I take for granted on a daily basis.
Psalm 100:3 “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.”
What are you grateful for today? thanks for stopping by!
