This is Measle's creative way to spell "conscience". I think it's sweet that she thanks God for her conscience. We've been working through ATI character booklets and they talk quite a bit about the conscience. It's nice to see something has stuck with the Measle! (Now if she'll just listen to it!!) I was also amused to see...
I didn't have to ask who in my bunch is thankful for food. American Boy (3) dictated this one to an older sibling. He is soooooo into food, real and fake. American Boy started out his life in an orphanage and I can't help but wonder if being hungry the first year of his life might contribute to his great love for food. How precious that he is grateful to the Lord for his food.
I've mentioned to you before that we use Truth and Grace booklets in our home and church to help us teach our children Scripture and theology. The one we're using now contains a beginning catechism and about 50 Bible passages, along with a few great hymns. One of the first Psalms they memorized is Psalm 100 and we say it often. Since it's a Psalm of thanksgiving, I thought it especially appropriate to post tonight.
"Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations." Psalm 100
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! And don't forget to enter to win a $25 Lowe's gift card from me on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.
