Today, Canadians take the day to stop and be thankful for everything that we, as a nation and a citizen have been blessed with. Yesterday we heard the story of the rich man wanting to follow Jesus. However, he left disappointed because Jesus called him to give up his possessions. Thanksgiving is a time where we can be thankful for the things that we have, and to remember that the items and things we do have are used to bring us closer to God and eternal life. It reminds us that our relationships with family, friends, strangers and God are most important, and that the need for possessions must always come last.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you enjoy the day with family, friends and lots of fun!
