One of the things I cherish during our Thanksgiving celebration is the “giving thanks” time when everyone shares what he or she is thankful for and why. No matter how many people we have celebrating this time together; my husband goes around the room asking everyone to share. Once everyone has shared, we conclude the time with prayer of thanks to God. Hearing what each one is thankful for and why deepens our connections.
To make these Thanksgiving celebration conversations even richer is now a card-game from Central Carolina Community Foundation (CCCF). The card game is based on open-ended questions. The entire theme of the game is generosity from a broad variety of angles that children and adults can clearly understand. If you’re interested in learning more about the TALK About Giving card game, visit the CCCF website at (https://www.yourfoundation.org/).
Whatever your Thanksgiving traditions are; commit to making new memories that will enrich and strengthen your connections. As we celebrate this year, may each heart, home and family this season be filled with the aroma of God's sweet presence.
"O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever." – Psa 107:1
