Above All Things, O God, Grant Me a Grateful Heart.
This saying has been written on my heart for years – and I keep thinking that someday I will get around to ordering the word-art letters so I that I can put it over the patio door in our home. With Thanksgiving approaching, we may individually, or as a family, turn our thoughts to the many blessings we enjoy.
But how do we teach our children to have an “attitude of gratitude” all year long? We hardly get the chance to put the Thanksgiving leftovers away before the media begins to bombard us with the message of Black Friday, and the number of “shopping days left until Christmas”.
