I am very so thankful to be helping out with the Girls’ group at church! We are starting to create prayer journals, or just thought journals, that are craftsy; they involve (or mine’s going to involve) mostly words and thoughts, just according to my style or how I have been these past 2 years. Not only am I trying to spread TBI awareness, I am putting the emphasis on POSITIVITY! That is one reason why November is so important- November is an important month to remember thankfulness and gratitude, hence the name of the holiday that comes at the end of the month, THANKSGIVING! A time to be thankful to God for all his blessings upon the earth. That stuff with the pilgrims and Indians ties in, I guess, but ultimately, God did give us this earth to be productive and fruitful, and enjoy the good works of our hands, the Indians just showed the pilgrims who turned this land into what we know now as America, how to work the land for the benefit of food and shelter.
For the month of NOVEMBER, we were given yesterday by one of the adult coordinators of our group, 30 thankful pictures (for the 30 days of November) with sayings on them, accompanied by prompts that are encouraging each person to reflect with gratitude on all that we have in our lives.
I AM GRATEFUL FOR HAVING A PROJECT LIKE THIS TO WORK ON! I am super into the idea of gratefulness/thankfulness and excited to decorate a project like this. A journal to contain my thoughts, and the inner workings of my mind- plus to present and preserve it in a very pretty fashion! I’m beyond thrilled to go to this month’s crafting meeting up at our church, PAPER ROCK AND SCISSORS.
So basically today I am thankful for having someone to help me prepare a journal in which to record my thankfulness!
This is very appropriate to the time of year and almost is parallel to the Indians showing the pilgrims how to construct objects to provide sustenance. Although this project in which I am constructing is for faithfulness More seasoned parishioners are going to show me how to create a prayer journal.
I am excited and thankful for the time of year and November!
