Psalm 100:4-5 …… Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.  For the Lord is good and His mercy is everlasting.  (NKJV)

Thanksgiving!  A time to be thankful for all that we have.  We might not be grateful at all times; human nature is fickle and often what we see ‘on the other side of the fence’ appears to be better.  I have discovered, sometimes to my detriment, that is not always so.

I am learning to be content with all that I experience, and all that I have.  It is not always easy but I put everything into perspective by realizing that millions around the world have much less than I do.

I have a roof over my head; food to eat; clean water to drink; family to love and be loved by; good friends and much, much more.

Just for a moment, over this Thanksgiving weekend (Canada), let us stop and think about all that we have, and let go of our wants.

Enjoy time with family and friends and if, by chance, you are alone, reach out to someone and share time with them.

Numbers 6:24-26  The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.  (NKJV)
