A Rainbow of Blessings!

The month of March has inspired us to think about rainbows! Winter is receding and color is returning to our world. 

Our Family Faith theme this month is

"A Rainbow of Blessings."

This is along the same lines as 1,000 Gifts, but we are listing blessings as a family. And we are using the rainbow to learn that blessings come in all different shades. I am encouraging the boys to find blessings in unexpected places, and in unexpected shapes and colors.

Every day we each name a blessing we noticed during our day. I write each on a piece of paper, the boys choose a ribbon, and then post it on the pantry door. The photos below we're taken last week, so we've added several blessings since then.

This has also provided a great opportunity to review the story of Noah, and to talk about why God set His rainbow in the sky.
