Canadian Thanksgiving

Postby Furen » Sat Oct 11, 2014 4:10 am

Because you know that one of us Canadians are going to post this at some point.

So what are you all thankful for?
(Yes, even you not Canadians, you can be thankful now as well, and we'll maybe return that favour... favor* just for you in November :) )
And this I pray, that your love would abound still, more and more with real knowledge and all discernment. Be prepared to preach the gospel at a moment's notice. Do you know the gospel well enough to do so yourself? Be ready.

I'm thankful for Canadians.
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? -Micah 6:8 KJV
They have shewed thee, O teen, what is good; and what doth the world require of thee, but to fit in, be wealthy, have good looks, and be rebellious? -Peer Pressure 1:1
"I hate milk; it's like drinking vomit." -Edward Elric and me. :fmed:

Those silly Canadians :) I make fun of them all the time!

But umm... I'm thankful for:
Well... as my most recent thread (other than like.... this one) has proven that I'm thankful for CAA
My friends
My love for God
Comic books

Clearly that's in no particular order. I'm sure there's something else :/ (obligatory family thankfulness)

So it turns out that today my pastor was talking about being thankful (on the Sunday before Thanksgiving here... shocking :O )

So he told everyone in the congregation to take out a piece of paper, and we'd be able to fill up more than one whole piece of paper if we actually count our blessings. Even if we can't do it today.

That being said, is there no one that want's to give even one thankful thought (Other than Cece and Molos)

Well, the Liberals, NDP, or Green Party don't hold a majority government right now. So I guess that's one thing to be thankful for.

Semi-joking aside, I think the two things that I'm most thankful for this year are having a loving and supportive family, and a roof over my head along with food to eat. Had a bit of an eye-opening after speaking with a few friends a while back.

Thankful for: new opportunities to learn; getting by one day at a time; little gifts and pleasures; church and singing even when you're terrible; the burden of freedom.

Thankful to be alive, to have supportive and loving friends, to have my Marzipan Anne, for my aide, for dark chocolate, for sweet potatoes, for a loving church family --I could keep going. :)
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
