Reflection Time and Prayer of the Day

Good Morning Brown Clee!

Yesterday we started to think about our value of the half term – Thankfulness.  We learnt that there are other words (synonyms!) that also mean the same – can you remember any of them?

One was Gratitude – which the dictionary defines as “the feeling or quality of being grateful”. There are many things that we can be grateful for – I am very grateful that the school is staying open on Thursday when the country goes into ‘Lockdown’ again – as school is a safe place for all children to learn, as well as being a happy place where children can socialise and play with their friends.  School has a hollow, empty sound about it when children aren’t in it – it is children that bring schools to life, and it is children that are at the heart of a school.

Here is a short film to watch and think about why Gratitude (Thankfulness) is so important – and how feeling grateful can impact on so many different areas of your life – as well as your outlook on life!  Enjoy it and then have a chat about what it made you think about…

Here are some questions for you to ponder…

How would you describe the man at the beginning, before he met the elderly lady?

Why was he shocked when the lady grabbed hold of his arm?

Did the man change after his experience – and why?

What do you think the man was grateful for?

……as we come to our time of worship, have a quiet moment to reflect on the many things that you are grateful for, and how you can show your appreciation, or pass on the thankfulness.

Prayer of the Day

Dear God,
For families and friends . . .
We are thankful.
For the beauty of nature and the world around us . . .
We are thankful.
For all the things in life that we too often take for granted . . .
We are thankful.
Please help us to be willing to show our thanks – not only in what we say, but also in what we do – every single day . . .
We are thankful.
