What Are We Thankful For?

This weekend we are celebrating the Canadian Thanksgiving. I was doing a bit of research to share some information about Thanksgiving with our children and with you, when I came across this picture.

A Thanksgiving Service Attended by Canadian Troops Being Held in the Cambrai Cathedral

When you are in the midst of the battle, do you take the time to stop and give thanks? I know that I don’t usually do that. This photo stopped me in my tracks and really brought back the reminder that we are supposed to give thanks in all things.

So, I am NOT going to write the post that I had in my head. I am going to leave you with this picture and the following scripture to ponder.

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Ephesians 5:20
