Project Thankful Recap
Thank you to everyone who sent in Project Thankful submissions! Today, we're showcasing how you spread God's love this past month.
Remember, thank-yous are powerful. They bring a blessing not only to the thanked person but to the thanker, too. When we're constantly looking for things to be thankful for, we don't have time to bemoan the things we lack or complain about what bothers us.
Thank you for helping us cultivate an attitude of gratitude this month!
Without further ado, here are our Project Thankfuls.
I felt to write this card for a sister in my branch. I sealed it in an evelope and left it out on the counter in our fellowship area for her to find.
My PT awardee is Pat, our cleaning lady. Since I was in stealth mode, I could not take her picture, but here is her cart signaling she is inside working. Pat is usually the first face I see getting off the elevator on my floor each morning and she is always so friendly and cheerful. Plus, she keeps our washroom spotless! I left her a surprise box of gourmet cupcakes and balloon with a thank you note.
The sister I thanked was baptized the same day as I was three years ago, and over that time, she has become an example to me of a woman who never tires from working for God. She never forgets to say "hi" to me on Sundays and has infinite patience with the little kids she teaches in Sunday School. She has been such a blessing to me, and it was a no-brainer to thank her (because I just don't do it enough)!
I gave my card to our mail carrier. She has had her own share of heartache this year (her Dad passed away) but she always has a smile on her face when she delivers the mail and when she hand delivers boxes to our house. I wrote the note and taped it to the back of the mailbox for her to find. It was anonymous.
Our Kids' Church in Detroit Branch #1 made Project Thankful cards and gave them to friends and family to show how much we appreciate them! We also made cards and flags for the veterans of our branch. Finally, the kids worked hard to make fleece no-sew blankets to donate to a home for expectant moms in the neighborhood. We are so thankful for all we have! Great idea! (Kids ages 4 to 11 years old.)
We purposely did not include anyone's name to keep the anonymous notes anonymous. But, as promised, we've put all our participants' names into a hat (er, I mean the random number generator on Random.org) and the winner of our Project Thankful giveaway is...
Sister Kim Komjathy!
Her prize is a scripture necklace from The Smile Emporium on Etsy!
We pray you have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow!
