Cultivating a heart of Gratitude in the Home

" Give thanks to the Lord for He is good.  His love endures forever."
Psalm 136:1

I am amazed by all the blessings God pours into our lives.  He is so good!  But oftentimes, I forget all that He does.  It is so easy to miss the "everyday" blessings.  Last year, I created this board and hung it in our kitchen. 

It is a way to celebrate and remember the blessings that God bestows on our lives.  It is a way to visually give thanks to God for all that He has given us.  We keep cardstock and a marker nearby and post things that we are thankful for.  The girls participate in this too!

In what ways do you cultivate a thankful heart as a family?


  1. Oh, what a simple and lovely idea! We do something like it at Thnaksgiving, but this is so much prettier! Great idea that I might have to borrow...

    Thank you for your comment earlier at THH. I am trying to do all our chores on Sat so I can do better at keeping Sunday for rest, but we still end up doing a few. baby steps... Hmm, as I type this another step might be declaring it a mostly Internet free day!

    enjoy your blessings.

  2. Thanks for visiting! I really enjoyed reading your post too! An "internet free day" is a good idea! We may have to implement that one too!
