Hi, kids of Trinity Church. It’s your friend, Henny. I hope you’re enjoying fall. The cooler weather makes me want to run around the yard and play ball. Did you have a good Halloween? Here’s a picture of me in my costume. Can you tell what my costume is in this picture?
Last year I went as a taco. This year I was a hot dog!
Now it’s November and before you know it, Thanksgiving will be here. It’s a great time to think about what makes us thankful. I’m thankful for my family. They adopted me when I was a puppy. I’m also thankful for all the great food that comes at our Thanksgiving dinner. I love turkey. Maybe I’ll get a bite of sweet potato, too!
Sometimes kids get to help make things for a Thanksgiving meal. What if you don’t know how to cook or aren’t old enough to use the oven? There are other ways to help. You can set the table by putting out the silverware and the napkins. You can draw a little picture on a card at each place setting. You can even help with the prayer before the meal.
One of the Trinity preschool classes uses a great prayer:
Thank you for the world so sweet.
Thank you for the food we eat.
Thank you for the birds that sing.
Thank you, God for everything! Amen.
If your family doesn’t already have a prayer, maybe you can use that one.
Do you have a question for me about God, the Bible or Trinity Church? Send it to me at bit.ly/AskHenny.
Remember my motto: Paws for Jesus!
