A Thankful Heart

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends, who celebrate their Thanksgiving today. I wish each of you a thankful heart and a day full of blessings.

Yesterday at Christs Church, The Rev. Neal Goldsborough talked to us about thankful hearts, and how a thankful heart precedes faith. So I wish you all, all my readers, thankful hearts.

  2. LOL, Grammy, I think they still make those hats and collars, but I don’t see any Indian feathers! In Alaska, we always included the Indians! (I always liked their headbands šŸ™‚ )

  3. Thanks for the memories. I, an American, celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving in Benin last year with a bunch of other expats.

  4. šŸ™‚ Suwanee, it always seems to me that Thanksgiving means more overseas when we share it with other expats, even those who don’t normally celebrate Thanksgiving. I hope yours was a great and unforgettable experience. šŸ™‚
