Well folks, it’s that time of the year, when, in Canada, families get together to share a special meal and perhaps, give thanks for the good things in life. The meal usually centres around a turkey and/or a ham, with various types of vegetables and dressings. We will be no different from others. Our turkey will be one reared by Ben and Josée on their little farm. Sadly, they won’t be there to enjoy it as they are traveling.
So if you are celebrating this way, at this time of the year, exactly for what are you thankful ? And exactly whom or what are you thanking? In our family we will be thanking our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for all he has done/ is doing for us. As we join hands in prayer around the table at meal time, we will think upon his sacrifice for us. We will give thanks for Cynthia who will prepare the meal. We will also give thanks for this beautiful country in which we live and for the great people who make up Canada.
Not least we will give thanks for the caring people who have treated Tim over the past weeks, for the difficult but correct decisions they made and for their massive commitment to getting him well.
Finally, we will give thanks for Oliver, the youngest member of our group, who, on Sunday, who will be celebrating his seventh birthday that day. We love you to bits Oliver and as you are a huge Star Wars fan…”may the force always be with you.”
Love to all and may your weekend be a blessed one. Bye for now and God bless.
