It was a dream.
My husband was standing next to our dining room table and explaining to the family, “a thankfulness jar”.
Basically it was an ordinary Mason jar which we were to each write one thing we are thankful for and place the papers in the jar.
I remember him talking about our need to give thanks to God regularly for all our blessings.
Then I woke.
“Lord, I like this. I think it would be good for all of us.”
“The girls could even decorate a jar, so it would be pretty. It could be sitting on the piano.”
“Lord, what am I missing? It feels like I only have half the plan.”
“Of course. Love it! We will have two jars, one for our thankfulness notes and the other for scripture.”
I texted the information to both our girls.
Easter Sunday seems a beautiful time to begin.
I have been praying about which verse to begin with.
I think this is the one:
Matthew 28:6 KJV — He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. (Emphasis mine.)
No matter your circumstances, I pray you are able to find creative ways to praise and thank our Lord Jesus this Easter.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You so much for Your sacrifice. Lord, as we look to Easter Sunday please help our hearts be completely focused upon praising You for all You have done. Let us never grow weary of the greatest story, Your story. Help us find renewed vigor from the trials You walked through. Lord Jesus, please bring our hearts and minds back to You on this, the best of holidays, for without Your Resurrection we have no hope of heaven. Thank You Jesus for dieing for me. Thank You for rising again! Praise be to God on high!!
