Thanksgiving

So today is the Canadian Thanksgiving. On January 31, 1957 the Parliament of Canada proclaimed that...
"A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest which with Canada has been blessed - to be observed on the 2nd Monday of October."

It is annoying when people say they are thankful for stuff but not who they are thankful too. I mean you can't just say thank you to no one because it just doesn't make any sense. So instead of saying I am thankful for try saying I am thankful to God for because then God gets the glory and it makes much more sense to be thankful to someone.
I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart;
I will tell of all Your marvelous works.

Psalm 9:1
The verse is saying that we are to tell all about what God has done for us and given us.
Here is a list of what I am thankful to God for.

  • That God loves all of us and promises to never leave us
  • That my brothers and I can be homeschooled by our awesome teacher our mom
  • For my family and how crazy and fun we are
  • For my babies aka my donkeys
  • For the awesome youth group at our church
  • For our church
  • For my books that I don't think I could live without including my Bibles
  • For my music that I don't think I could live without either
  • For all my friends 
  • For my violin, I have so fun with it!
  • For our town
  • For our house and acreage
  •  For Christmas because it is the most wonderful time of the year.
  • For food, especially rice!
  • For my followers because I wouldn't write on my blog if it wasn't for you guys
  • For country things like music, the style, clothes, etc.
  • Old TV shows, I just love them!
God bless you,

  3. This is a great post to remind us US folk how much Thanksgiving means to Canadians even if it is on a different day. I linked to it in the most recent Carnival of Homeschooling at http://petticoatgovernment.blogspot.com/2013/11/carnival-of-homeschooling-413.html.
