Happy Thanksgiving


Yes, today is Thanksgiving -- we celebrate early here in Canada! In the spirit of the day, here's three favourite quotations about gratitude:

How many gifts and graces You have given me! How many favours You have fed me from Your hand! I look for Your love in all directions, then suddenly its blessing burns in me.
--Rabia Al-Adawiyya

The grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference.
--Thomas Merton

ThanksGiving is good but ThanksLiving is better.
--Matthew Henry

Enjoy your Thanksgiving turkey, tofurkey or what-have-you, fellow Canuckians!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! My favorite all time Thanksgiving movie is Planes, Trains and Automobiles. After dinner and while napping, I watch this and wait for some of my favorite "one liners" For example, "Those aren't pillows."
