Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

As I mentioned in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, this weekend is very different than normal. 

It is a long weekend, here in Canada.  So today, Monday, is a holiday.  It is Thanksgiving Day!  To read more about our Canadian Thanksgiving, click on this LINK.

 
Being
Thanksgiving
day here
in
Canada...
we must give thanks to God...for everything in our lives!
For the good, the not so good, and even what we think is evil.
Honouring
my Lord,
I thank Him
that while
we were
yet sinners
Christ
died
for us!
I thank
You, Lord...
for my
family and
friends, whom
I love
and who
loves me
in return.
I thank You...
for those I
care for and
show love to
who do not
do the same
in return.
I thank You...
for every trial
in my life,
including
this latest
one, where
my life is
at risk.
In everything
I give
thanks...
to You!

 
Colossians 3:12-17 gives us direction from God, "Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."

Knowing that those Bible verses are very clear and say it all, I would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!  May God bless you!




Until next time...
