thanksgiving in Canada


"O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name:
make known his deeds among the people.
Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.
Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore.
Remember his marvellous works that he hath done;
his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth ..."
Psalm 105: 1-5

Happy Thanksgiving Saija. I love the picure of you with the pumpkin art. I notice a few white pumpkins in the picture. I don't recall seeing them before. Just another part of God's creation eh!
I am glad you had an enjoyable vacation in Ontario recently.
Blessings to you and Leo both.
