The time is almost here…time to eat like there’s no tomorrow and time to give thanks! I know so often that we spend Thanksgiving Day eating, napping, watching football, and playing games/puzzles. But, do we truly pause and give thanks for what a blessed life that we have been given? This morning I went to a Thanksgiving luncheon for women at a shelter. The simple blessing of a meal and small toiletries and coats overwhelmed them with gratitude. How often I think we take for granted the everyday pleasures that God has so graciously given us. I pray that this Thanksgiving I would not miss the true meaning of Thanksgiving and pause to give thanks.
As you start thinking about decorating your table for the occasion, why not add a little something to your table so that everyone can pause and think about what they are grateful for. This could be something kept personal or something to share. Below are several cute free printables for you to print and use on your Thanksgiving table.
I love this one from one of my favorite bloggers, Emily at Jones Design Company.
