Be happy that others are enjoying the bounty as well:
We are really blessed to live in Canada. Thanksgiving is a holiday that ALL Canadians can celebrate. There is no banning of Thanksgiving like there is of Christmas. No lefties protesting Thanksgiving, or making it a politically correct holiday.
I thank our troops for protecting us and others who are not able to protect themselves. I hope that the women and children in Afghanistan will soon be as free as the women and children in Canada.
I thank those refugees and immigrants that come here to make Canada a better place. Those who come to reform us to their way of thinking are not welcome.
Most often we forget to thank our farmers for the bounty that we receive from their efforts. They toil from before dawn to late into the night to provide us with the food we need to stay alive. You try getting up at 5 o'clock every morning, in 30 below weather, to feed the stock or milk the cows. I know that people in cities, who buy everything from the freezer section of the supermarket, don't really connect it with those red-necked farmers, but they should, they are the providers of life. Could you please remember in your Thanksgiving prayers to thank our farmers, who give you what you need to sustain your life.
Look around you and appreciate what we as Canadians enjoy, a peaceful life. Stand on guard against those who want to do harm to our nation. Do not fall for the silver tongued politicians who promise everything and deliver nothing. Look to yourselves and your family for sustenance, not your government. Do for yourself. This is not selfish, it removes you as a burden to society allowing more help for those who can not do for themselves.
I thank my Lord for looking down and protecting us. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving.
