For those of you who have taken the time to read by bio, you would already know that I am an American living in Canada. Making this move wasn’t anything our family was looking for, but it was something we prayed earnestly about before walking through that open door. The question we asked God was “Lord, is this a door that you are opening, or is this door really a temptation to get us off track? It is your will for us to walk through this door?”
My husband and I, both, received a quick answer. Although we didn’t know what would happen or how it would take place, but we did know that it would require a lot of faith. As for myself, I was not a world traveler, for sure. I had never stepped one foot into Canada, neither did I know anything about it.
Needless to say, we made that move, and, really, it was one of the easiest moves I’ve ever made. All along the way it was very evident that Gods hand was on the move, and on us.
In this, God has very good to us. Yes, we have had some difficult times – something we all should somewhat expect from life – but God has been there with us the entire time. The good hasn’t necessarily always been a physical one, but has, for sure, been a soul-ful one as he has comforted us, given us direction and strengthened us all along the way. This, among others, is the one I’m most thankful for – my Lord Jesus Christ. He is forever faithful.
Today, in Canada, we are celebrating Thanksgiving. It is a blessing that we get to have two Thanksgivings. So, for those in Canada, Happy Thanksgiving! Take a moment to thank the Lord for something you haven’t before.
And as for those in the US and abroad, today may not be a government holiday, but there is never a bad day to express thankfulness, not only to God, but to the people that God has blessed you with. Let today be a thank-full day.
Go forth and be blessed, my friends.
