THE STORY OF THE BLESSING JAR
When potter Dave Lockie and his wife Jennie were raising their four children they wanted to instill in them a sense of gratitude for all that God was doing in their lives. They began a family tradition of writing down events for which they were thankful. Perhaps it was a lost pet that had safely returned home or a college acceptance letter. Events would be recorded and placed in the special pottery vessel which Dave had thrown. In time, the vessel came to be known as the “Blessing Jar”. Once a year the family would gather for a special Family Day and one of the highlights would be to pass around the slips of paper and read them aloud. In this way, they could remember God’s faithfulness. We hope that the Blessing Jar will help you to establish a similar tradition in your home.
