Kids' Question of the Month – November
We interrupt our regularly scheduled Miracle Monday to bring you the November Kids' Question of the Month. We got a ton of responses!
It is not happy people who are thankful, it is thankful people who are happy.
That's the lesson that Madam Blueberry learns in one of my favorite "Veggie Tales" episodes.
Although it's been years since I watched it with our kids, whenever I hear the word "thankful" my brain instantly fires up this song in my head...
"Because a thankful heart is a happy heart,
I thank God for what I have,
That's an easy way to start..."
Click here to enjoy Madam Blueberry's "Thankfulness Song," and read on to learn what makes our little ones' hearts happy and thankful! (We told them they couldn't answer "my parents" — too easy!)
