The best day of the year to give thanks to the Lord has always been today. However, we have a tendency to forget that, and so I am grateful for a day set apart to remind us of what God has done and to remind us to give Him thanks.
For those of you who don’t know, Thanksgiving Day in Canada was proclaimed by the Canadian Parliament “For general thanksgiving to Almighty God for the blessings with which the people of Canada have been favoured.”1 It is celebrated on the second Monday in October, and has been since 1932 (with only one exception). The official Canadian Heritage government website gives additional insights into the history of Thanksgiving in Canada that could be very interesting for further exploration.
One thing for which I am thankful is the beauty we see around us in fall in this part of the world. Here are a few pictures we have taken recently.
Elizabeth decided to make a unique use of some fallen maple leaves this fall. This cake was great, and the chocolate leaves made it simply amazing! If you want to know how she made them, visit our recipes page. (Sorry, that page doesn’t exist. Maybe some day we will make such a page.)
Psalm 95:2 “Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.”
