November of Thanksgiving

For the 5th year in a row, I’m declaring November to be the month of thanksgiving at Rebecca Writes!

Every one of us has an abundance of good gifts from God, so I’m inviting you to join with me in giving thanks to him for his many blessings.

Each day during the month, I’ll post something for which I’m thankful. You can participate in any of these ways:

  • Mention something you’re thankful for in the comments here. I’ll include your comment in one of my thanksgiving posts.
  • Email me to tell me what you’re thankful for and I’ll include it in a post.
  • Post your thankful thought(s) on your own blog, send me the link(s), and I’ll link to your post(s). If you plan to post something daily during the month, let me know that, too. That way you won’t need to send me your daily links.

Lisa of Lisa Notes participated in thanking God during the whole month of November last year and writes that it blessed her, “both in reading what others wrote, and in making me think daily of things that I am thankful for.” She’s exactly right! It is a blessing to read all the posts of thanksgiving every day. Why don’t you join us?

And would you consider mentioning the November of Thanksgiving celebration on your own blog and inviting your readers to take part, too?

Rebecca, thank you for such a wonderful Thanksgiving Celebration! I am in! I will continue writing every Monday my gratitude list, but I will also include a thanksgiving note in every post during November.

I was also thinking , do you have a button for this? And just for you to know, I already extended the invitation to this celebration on my blog today.

Under His sun and by His Grace,

Count me in, Rebecca. I'm glad you're hosting this again this year, and was already looking forward to it. I've already posted about it on my blog, and if you have a button, I'll add it!

I posted about your November of Thanksgiving celebration on my blog today. I'm excited about it. Hope you don't mind that I came up with own button to use, based on your picture above. If anybody wants it, I can send it to them. (But if you don't like it, I'll delete it!)

I love the button, Lisa. The only thing is that that isn't my real url—even though it will get you here. My real URL is Could you change that?

I'd love to have the button to use with each day's thanksgiving post.

Oh, Rebecca, I'm so thankful to you for hosting this again this year. I've been so blessed by participating in years past that I decided to start blogging again just so I could participate this year.

Rebecca, this is a GREAT idea! I'm doing a Gratitude Checkup on my blog, suggesting ways to involve the family in thankfulness.

I don't think I'll be able to post every day, but I will on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

I'll be checking in with you daily, Rebecca. How neat!

October 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

Yes, I'll definitely change the URL. Thanks for letting me know.

October 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLisa notes...

That is a nice button, Lisa. How do you that?

Hi Rebecca - I found your blog through Lisa (Lisa notes). I would love to participate! I may not be able to post everyday, but will do so as often as possible.

I plan to participate on my blog. I have my blog set to private but I will send you an invite so that you can read my posts. Thank you for hosting this.

October 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMaria

Wow! Lots of people planning to participate. Please do send me an invite, Maria.

I'd like to do this, too, Rebecca.

Hi Rebecca,

I probably won't be consistent, but I did post my thankful thoughts this morning, and I linked to this post.
