“ As a man thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7)
The story of “ The Magic Mask” is a story in which a powerful ruler with a face full of bitterness, later transforms his frowning cruel countenance to one of understanding and love. He does this with the help of a magic mask which only remains in place when thoughtfulness and gentleness come from within the ruler. He wears a mask to win the love of a beautiful lady, but later frees himself from the mask when he realises that it was his thoughts that shaped his new and true self. This was a beautiful story that sparked so much discussion in our home.
Gratitude changes the countenance of our hearts because gratitude always attracts Truth, Beauty and Goodness.
We are memorizing Philippians 4:18 together, so we engaged the kids in creating their own collages of depictions of whatever is True, Noble,right, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy.
We are all learning that gratitude goes hand in hand with creating the mindset that attracts more truth, beauty and goodness in our lives.
