Let’s Count Our Blessings

count your blessings November is the time of year when many people contemplate the blessings they have in life. And it is no wonder. Since 1863 in the United States, we have had a national holiday set aside to give thanks for God’s blessings in our lives.

Many people spend Thanksgiving day with family and friends, eating a big feast and watching football games. While sharing about all the food at your big Thanksgiving feast would be insensitive to your sponsored children, this month gives us an opportunity to share about the history of Thanksgiving [3], as well as some of the traditions you have in your family.

Thank You, Lord, for blessing me with life today.


This month, help us find Thanksgiving projects and ideas to share with our sponsored children for our Second Friday Letter Writing Club [7] on Pinterest. Not a member yet? Be sure to leave the URL for your Pinterest profile in a comment below, and I will add you to our growing group of “pinners”!
