Each week when we end our Sunday School program, we come together in prayer. A favorite part of this time for the kids is adding in their own piece to the prayer; they love naming what they are thankful for.
As we prayed this past week, the kids began to thank God for their family, for the church, for their friends. When almost everyone had a turn, one child thanked God for love.
It was a simple reminder to us all that love is a blessing and a gift from God. We can see it in our families, our friends, and in our churches, but we sometimes forget to be thankful for such an incredible blessing.
