Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

We wish our Canadian Followers Happy Thanksgiving!
Since this is Columbus Day in the United States of America and it is a Traditional Celebration in our home, I wanted to know more about the Thanksgiving Day in Canada that is celebrated on this day too! I found out that the first settlers had hard tack to eat, but most of the posting that I have read about this Thanksgiving day resemble our own U.S. Thanksgiving Day. We both do football, harvest celebrating, eat, eat lots, and celebrate thankfulness with family and friends.

So what is the difference between the two?
I found a blog that helps answer that question.
From Vox.com "The holiday officially commemorates the 1578 voyage of English explorer Martin Frobisher, whose ship barely survived the journey to what is today Canada. The crew gave thanks for surviving the trip, which became Thanksgiving." Blog Link
The blog featured is more of a discourse between Columbus Day and  Canadian Thanksgiving Day.  But my parents married on Columbus Day, so it is special in our home! And not for the carnaige that is spoke of in the much heated "Columbus" debate.

So enjoy your day!Have fun with family & friends! And eat enough to be satisfied, not overly!
 God Bless You All!

Prayers for Healing Update

Prayers for Healing (Prayers for Healing UPDATES) Hello Dear Ones,

When a believing person prays, great things happen. (James 5:16b NCV)
I've been giving thought to how to go about our prayer chain. I have decided to do an ongoing prayer post with updates and with Praises as they come in!

If you would like to be on this list, or if you would like me to post a prayer for you, please just let me know in the comments below in the Subject line put "Prayer Request", add the first name and last initial, prayer request and I will add it asap. I remove the info from the comments, so you will not see it below, but on this list here when I am done.

It has been said to me many times that, " if we don't know what to pray for, be it huge or small, we don't recieve the blessing that prayer will give the person who needs the prayer and the person praying". Please keep posing the prayer requests. All personal information is kept private.

We pray to you Lord Jesus Christ to…
