THANKSGIVING BLESSING BASKET

image

Our family has a special tradition that we do around Thanksgiving time.  Every year we select 3-4 friends and/or families that God has brought into our lives or that we have been blessed to know better in the past year, –  and we make what we call a “BLESSING BASKET” for them.

The basket is filled with a variety of items, including some homemade goodies. It is our way of honoring their friendship and letting them know in a unique and special way, –  how truly grateful we are for them in our lives. Friends are a gift from the Lord. 

 

“A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter:  he that has found one has found a treasure.”

– Sirach 6:14

Start a new tradition this year and thank God for the blessing of friends!

 

“As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.” – Proverbs 27:17
