a life of gratitude (103-126) & Day 7

Yesterday in the children’s morning life group, we put on our thankful glasses and wrote things that we are thankful for on our thankful cards. We put our thankful cards in our thankful bags. And we realized that our thankful bags are overflowing with abundance…….

Give thanks in all circumstances, for it is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.  1 Thes 5:18

106. Girls painting for His glory

107. Middle Sis wanting to blog so that she can share the love of Jesus with others – Made 4 His Glory (stop by with some encouraging words if you have a second to spare)
