Does your country celebrate ‘Thanksgiving Day’ ?
In Canada, this feast day is in October, while Americans officially say ‘Thank-you’, in November.
I was making breakfast yesterday when I once again realized how inadequate it is to have only one ‘official’ day to say thanks to God for all the food He provides.
Newfoundland is a ruggedly beautiful island in the Atlantic Ocean, and traditionally, the diet here consisted mainly of cod fish, root vegetables, bread, berries and tea.
With the miracle of modern transportation, the food variety available here now is fantastic.
I was thankful for juicy oranges from South Africa, avocados from Mexico, blueberries and raspberries from Peru, and organic coffee, also from Peru.
Tomorrow is cookie making day for me. Our seaside kitchen will be fragrant with the smells of vanilla and cinnamon which has come from Sri Lanka, via England.
Let us give thanks for all the food provided for us.
How does God feel when we display grateful hearts ?
He thinks that it is great !
