The Thankful Chain {counting our blessings}

We love the ever popular “Thankful Tree” but, a “Thankful Chain” can be a great way to really visualize the amount of blessings you and your family have. How fun to see your blessings grow longer and longer as the days lead up to Thanksgiving!

The Thankful Chain is so easy to make … just cut strips of cardstock and either hand write or stamp Counting my Blessings. Place those slips of paper in a jar and have everyone grab one each day and fill out something they are thankful for. Each night I add those links to our “Thankful Chain”. 

On Thanksgiving use that Thankful Chain as part of your decor and let your guests read all that you are thankful for – encourage them to add their own thankful loops to the chain! Our family has so much to be thankful for {God, a roof over our head, food on the table, nice clothes to wear, family and friends, each other, our pets, gifts and talents that God has given us}!!

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.

Psalm 100:4

Happy Thanksgiving … what are you thankful for this year?
