  1. It’s not easy to find something about Thanksgiving that I can do with my grandchildren at our family dinner, but I found your site and will use some of the ideas. I don’t think the big family dinner is what Thanksgiving is all about. I don’t mind if my children and grand children can’t recall what the food tasted like and no doubt they will not, but I do want them to remember that we are thankful.

    • Thanks for writing, Sonja. I praise God you found something useful for your family dinner. I think of 1 Thess. 5:18 — “give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” Yes, thankfulness is very important. When we have an attitude of gratitude we are acknowledging God as the sovereign one and source of all we have. May God use you as you plant these good seeds in your family.

  2. I absolutely love this & will share it with the residents at our local nursing home. Although age & low health have invaded our lives, we’re still obligated to give thanks… IN ALL THINGS, GIVE THANKS! & we are truly thankful. God bless you.

    • The things in this thanksgiving acrostic transcend our age, physical condition, etc.. So, no matter the situation we find ourselves in, there’s always something for which to be thankful. May you and the residents bask in His love and grace!
