Having only been married for just under two years, my newly-forged family is still establishing our traditions. I wanted to come up with a significant thanksgiving tradition, because I believe the holiday is significant beyond the turkey, stuffing, and relatives gathered around the table. So, this is what I've come up with:
I'll call it the Thanksgiving Journal - each year, each member of the family will put an entry in the journal of things for which they are thankful from that particular year. As the years pass, we will be able to look back and see how God has been at work in our lives. As our family grows, children can participate, too. We can read the year's entries around the table before pie or around the fire before bed, making a point to give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever (Psalm 136).
