Connect the Dots - Thankful Stones

Let's rock at being thankful! For this activity you need to find some larger stones, and get some bright colorful markers. Refer to the story in Joshua when the children of Israel crossed the Jordan River. To show their thanks to God and to make sure they never forgot what he did for them, they set up a memorial with the stones on the riverbed. Talk as a family about the things you are thankful for and give everyone a couple stones to write their thankful items on. When you are done, place the stones in a place in your house as a reminder.

Lots of fun. Great moments. Connecting faith.

Thankful for all God has done!

Instructions - Give everyone a couple stones and some markers and have them write things on the stones that they are thankful for; explain the story of Joshua and the memorial stones.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
