Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!

We all have something we can be thankful for; family, friends, good food, and a roof over our heads.

"I am grateful for what I am
and have. My thanksgiving
is perpetual." ~
Henry David Thoreau

Let's take a moment to drink in the beauty of this season.

From His abundance we have received one Blessing after another. - John 1:16

Whatever is Beautiful,
Whatever is Meaningful,
Whatever brings you Happiness,
May it be yours this
Holiday Season
and throughout the coming year!

Excerpt from our church bulletin

While we're being thankful, please pray for our neighbours in the USA and the Caribbean who have been affected by Hurricane Matthew. May God bless them all!

  24. Mmm . . . that pumpkin pie on the Lavender Rose (I think?) china looks so pretty. You all are so sensible to have Thanksgiving earlier, and not so close to Christmas, as we do here in the States! And yes, there's always so much to be grateful for, isn't there? Blessings to you, Deborah

  25. I hope you had a great Canadian Thanksgiving!! We had an early Thanksgiving here in our house. Our daughter wanted it since she lives in India and has not been home for Thanksgiving for the last 5 years. Beautiful photos!!
