Thank you everyone for your responses to
AND to all who answered on Facebook!
If you aren't already a friend of
Walking on Sunshine on Facebook,
I'd love to be friends with all of you!
Yesterday I asked for YOUR favorite
Thanksgiving Scripture Verse
and told you that I would show you what you
could do with all these wonderful scriptures
to make your Thanksgiving special.
Thanksgiving Scripture Place Cards
This is something our family has been doing for YEARS.
Well, actually for as long as I can remember we've had these cards on
our Thanksgiving table.
My mother begin this tradition of writing out
Thanksgiving or Thankful Scriptures Verses
on cards and using them as place cards
for the table.
We each take turns reading our scripture,
usually ending with the "head" of the household who
then prays for the meal.
Even the youngest can participate.
Usually it's just a word,
Hallelujah or Praise the Lord.
Here's what you need.
I found these "gift cards" in AC Moore.
Card stock and stickers.
Some form of glue or tape.
I used mounting squares...
And of course, your Bible...
I started with a master list of scripture verses and
who would get which verse
because I'm insanely organized...
Now, you can just write the verses out on the cards
but I chose to type and print them out on the card stock...
Cut the scripture verses out to fit inside your card...
Using the mounting squares, attach the
card stock to the inside of the card...
Now comes the fun part!
Decorate the front of the card...
Here's a card from a few years ago
done using the computer for everything...
I used card stock and printed an image along with
each person's name on the front and the scripture inside.
Then cut the card stock to the size I wanted...
Can you see the cards on the table...
You don't have to use the computer.
When my mother first started this tradition she used index cards
and hand-wrote the scripture verses.
You can even have your children cut out leaves from
construction paper and write the scripture verses on the back
with your guests names on the front of the leaf.
I love this tradition and it wouldn't be Thanksgiving
if we didn't spend some time giving thanks
to the Lord for all His many blessings.
Let me know if you start this tradition with your family!
And yes, Debbie, you guessed right!
Please share some pictures of your cards!
Remember when I said I was insanely organized above?
I made out a seating chart for our meal next week...
On the Menu at our house tonight...
Come back tomorrow for the rest of THIS recipe!
Enjoy your day!
