Happy Thanksgiving

This weekend,more specifically on Monday,we as Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving.
Every day should have an element of Thanksgiving in it,so the day we celebrate it is not that important.
I know that I have rich blessings all around me.God is so good to me,I cannot help but give Him praise.

I may well have shown these pictures before,but they are such that another look may be OK.
Fall is filled with so much beauty.Each leaf and each blade of grass rivals the beauty of the springtime flowers.


I have said it before,but it bears repeating,we need to slow down long enough to really see all the beauty which is right before our eyes. Fall is a good time to that.Much of the work of the summer months is finished and we can shift into a slower gear to enjoy this beautiful season.


I encourage each one of you,whether you celebrate Thanksgiving now or in November,as my US friends do,to take time to count your blessings.
Doing this will help us to realize all that we have.

I saw this on Facebook and totally agree with it.

My life may not be going the way I had planned it,but it is going exactly the way God has planned it.

Knowing this is enough for me and I can praise God for the way He planned it.


Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends.

Hi Ruth, What a wonderful thought and you are so right about counting our blessings. I love that first photo of the lake. It reminds me of Green Lake where I've been doing a lot of my photography for my blog. These are just beautiful places, aren't they? Thank you for your kind comments on my blog. I wish you the best of Thanksgiving on Monday. John

Happy belated Thanksgiving, Ruth! Your fall photos are spectacular in their colors, as always. Thanks for the reminder to count my blessings! All praise and thanks to God for his love and faithfulness toward us.

We'll be spending Thanksgiving in southern California with my eldest son and family. I'm sure I'll be helping with some of the cooking.

Have a blessed day.
