“The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but the thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings.”― Henry Ward Beecher
It wasn’t always so, but I’ve grown to love Thanksgiving more than any other holiday. Although I try to be mindful about being thankful each day, Thanksgiving has a way of focusing my attention.
After all God inhabits the praises of his people, and I once read a translation that paraphrased it as God is in the Thank You. All the more reason for me to be thankful.
In fact my life is filled with people I care about and I have been blessed in so many ways.
I have a wonderful family and great friends.
I have a roof over my head, food in my stomach and joy in my heart.
I’m in fairly good health and I have a wonderful job; doing what I love to do.
And I live in this beautiful country, Canada – a land as diverse as the people who call it home.
Is my life perfect?
But perfect has always seemed a little overrated to me.
How about you?
Happy Thanksgiving Canada!
