Nov Blog | Attitude of Gratitude | By Holy Trinity Students

November is truly the time to stop and thank God for the gifts he has given you–and show your gratefulness to your family, friends and community. It’s also when, as a school, we transition from our focus on FAITH for the first trimester to a focus on SERVICE for the second term. This quote serves as our starting point: “Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the father.” Colossians 3:17

We reached out to our Holy Trinity Catholic School students to ask them about this “attitude of gratitude” and what it means to them, when doing things in service to the Lord. We loved hearing what they had to say and wanted to share some of their responses with you!

“I show my gratitude by trying to give others good advice and trying to give them confidence
so that they know that they matter to so many other people.”
Evelyn — 7th Grade

“I thank God all the time through praying, sharing, and being kind to others. I also care
for all of God’s creation.”
Mira — 3rd Grade

“Service for me is helping others that are in need and showing kindness, respect and love.
Such as helping my family, friends, and teachers.”
Ly — 7th Grade 

“I am happy and grateful when others share stuff…when friends
share something with me I feel happy.”
Elli and Nora — Transitional Kindergarten

“By helping my family with chores and helping my grandparents and aunts and uncles with yard work and watching my cousins to make sure they don’t get hurt or into trouble is how I give thanks to God and do good for all.”
Patrick — 7th Grade 

“I am grateful that when someone is sad and I can make them feel better then
they feel good again.”
Weston — Transitional Kindergarten

We are so grateful every day you choose to send your children to Holy Trinity. We wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving in this year that has been to say the least, challenging for so many. We pray you and your family stay well and please remember: “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.”
Colossians 3:15
