…Or a Blessings Basket, Blessings Bowl, Blessings Bag or Blessings Bin. It really doesn’t matter what you call it, or how you decorate it. What matters is what you put inside it. 🙂

There are several different ways you can do this. How you decide to do it depends on your family and what you think will work best for you.

Option one: Leave a notepad and pen near the box. Each time someone is thankful to God for something He’s given, or thankful to a family member for something, jot a quick note about it with the date, fold it, and put it in the box.
What then? Also your choice! Have a special day each month to open them and share with each other, wait until Thanksgiving of the next year to read them all, or something else.

Option two: Every time you are thankful for something God has blessed you with, put in a silver coin (nickel, dime, quarter), and when someone in your family does something you’re thankful for, put in a penny.
What then? The best thing would be to gather the money and give it to a special ministry in your church, or to a local or overseas charity close to your heart. You could do this once a year, around Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Option three: While everyone is waiting for the big meal on Thanksgiving, ask them to write something to put in the Blessings Box. This can be anonymous or not. It should be something meaningful that expresses how many blessings God has given throughout the year.
What then? Pass the box around, and each person reads one of the papers. Put papers in a scrapbook for future re-reads.

Option four: Make a Blessings Box for someone else, decorated beautifully, filled with small gifts, hand-written verses, sweet notes, healthy treats and whatever else.
What then? Give it to someone you know could use reminding about God’s goodness and blessings.

What are some ideas you can think of that would go along with this? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

God bless,
Jenn

    Hi Jenn

    I love your ideas for a blessings basket. I have a journal where I write blessings down, but was wondering of a fun way I could do this with my husband. I think I will suggest this to him for the New Year, will be a great encouragement. Thanks!
    God bless
