Board of Gratefulness

This is my office:

These shelves have a little more love on them now.

I basically love it. 

My favorite thing is the Board of Gratefulness.

When people come into my office I ask them to write something they are thankful for on a Post-It Note and put it on the bulletin board. 

This is a way to cultivate a heart and attitude of gratefulness and point our hearts to the Lord who does exceedingly abundantly above all we ask, think or imagine [Ephesians 3:20].

We've been working on filling the board since I started work at Real Truth Matters in May [you can read about my third anniversary at RTM here] and it filled up yesterday!

Because we're going to keep doing this, one of my True Beauty girls and I picked out a cute little composition book to put all the Post-Its in. Now we can have a record of all the things we are thankful for. 

I think this would be a great idea for a school room or for your home to cultivate an attitude of gratefulness in your children and even yourself. It's a great exercise! 

This was from my 4-year-old nephew. Precious.

I think it will be so fun to look over this in a year [or more] and see what we were thankful for.  

"Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever!  Let them thank the LORD for His steadfast love, for His wondrous works to the children of man!" -Psalm 107:1, 8
