"A way to be inspired by gratitude"
I have a lovely friend who blessed me one week by making this beautiful little box for me. I was so touched! It was an empty box when I received it and I still felt so special to receive it! When you read the little saying on top of the box, you can tell why:
A Box of Blessings
Fill me up once a day
Write a blessing so you can say
Thank you, Lord, one blessing more
You've given me from your rich store
My task is to inspire myself to live so that I am being thankful for the many blessings that come my way each and every day. Now I have my cute little box, every day I am to write down a blessing I have received on a piece of paper, and pop that in my box. I already have two blessings stored there, my friend will be glad to know, and one of them says I am grateful to have friends just like her!
I felt so special when I received my gift! Thank you, Rebbecca, for thinking of me :)
There is a lot of evidence to show that by living with a grateful heart, people do become much more content and joyful in their lives. It is an expectation of the Lord that we are thankful to Him every day.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (KJV Bible)
If you have not yet tried it, why not count your own blessings?
You can make your own Blessing Box for yourself or for a special friend or even for a group of friends. Rebecca shared lunch with three of us and she had made three little boxes to bring along and give to each of us at that lunch. See how thoughtful she is?
Just make a basic lidded box out of cardstock and designer scrapbook paper, and decorate it the way you want. You could find a box that is already made and just cover it to suit your recipient, or you could make your own box right from the beginning, perhaps like this gift box. Stampin' Up! also has a Gift Box Punch Board you can purchase so that you can make containers of different widths, heights and depths.
Don't forget to put a copy of the saying on top of your creation so your friend (and you) will be reminded to write down and place a blessing there each day.
Another idea would be to fill the box with some little cards showing your favourite gratitude verses. Then your friend could pull out a verse a day and be encouraged.
