Blogosphere has a lot to say about Christmas (this blog included!) - but there is one little idea that I have seen only in one spot. A simple idea, easy to do, perfect in every way. I noticed it after Christmas last year - a photo and one sentence tucked away in a larger post. Here. Amanda's family spend a little bit of time thanking God for all the good things He gives them before they open their presents.
Given a bit of warning, everyone has time to think of something they're thankful to God for - and what a great moment for an adult to give thanks to God for sending His Son to earth a baby, to die a man on a cross and be raised to eternal life that we too might have eternal life with Him. And if done annually, what a rich thing to see how these prayers of thanksgiving develop.
Thanks Amanda. This is a gift.
