The Thankful Tree

A tree in a room seems to bring attention to itself. Those who first have a glimpse usually turn their head to have a second look. Hm, how interesting . . . they think, but their thoughts quickly wander off.

But take a tree and give it a name, a purpose. Those who notice will take a gander to see what is so special about said tree. Why looky there! Notes on a tree – I wonder what they say . . . and on they think, and take a peak to see the other side of each note hanging on the branches.

What they find may stay in their minds and even bring a smile to their face. What could that be, listed on each piece of paper?

Why, notes of thankfulness, don’t you see?

The Thankful Tree

Because the tree was called “The Thankful Tree” and on it hung reminders of grateful hearts, declaring their glad praise to the One who blessed them.

It’s that easy! Take joy in giving thanks in all things…
