It's wonderful, isn't it, to develop eyes that really see the eternal in the everyday? Blessings to you.

Have a Happy Canadian Thanksgiving :) :) :) First heard about your holiday when I was in Germany. Half the students living on my floor were from Canada, I was one of two Americans..and the rest were Germans. Anyway, it was fun to watch everyone get together to celebrate!!! Have a lovely day. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

A grateful person is a peaceful person. Heard that this weekend. I believe you must have a lot of peace in your life, Camille :) Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian Friend!

Welcome Rhonda ~ It's lovely to "meet" you. Thank you for joining in with your thoughts here today. Oh yes, it really is a blessing to see the tracings of HIS hand in the midst of the everyday.

Thanks for the greetings Heather @ Oregon! I find it interesting that you didn't know about our Thanksgiving until you were away in another country!! What a fun story. :)

Thanks Jennifer! It was a lovely day. :)

Oh Heather...there are days that I do not exude peacefulness, but the LORD is perfect peace and never leaves us! How precious THAT is!! Happy Thanksgiving to you too my Canadian friend...I trust you had a lovely time with family. :)

Blessings to you each one!
In Him,
Camille

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving. Hope it was a good day and thanks for sharing your blessings. We have many things to be thankful for. One,especially today, was eating lunch with my friend I've not seen in 5 years. Alice has been a missionary in South Africa for 30 years and now home in USA. It is a blessing to be sisters in the Lord, no matter our age or location. Hugs, to you my dear! :0)

Thank you for stopping by Becky...it's lovely to hear from you! How precious that you had a chance to reconnect with a friend from far away. Isn't it wonderful to have these dear Christian brothers and sisters in the LORD? HE knits us together in beautiful ways, doesn't HE? :)

Thank you for your greetings Linda! It's always a blessing to hear from you. We had a lovely day together remembering God's faithfulness and thanking HIM for HIS blessings. You must be having a Thanksgiving Day soon as well...I don't know when it is, but enjoy! :)

Oh YES Jackie! What a day THAT will be! Thank you for your sweet comments...they are greatly appreciated. :)

Blessings to you each one!

Happy Thanksgiving Camille!
My daughter came and told me that it was Canadian Thanksgiving. She even made a pumpkin pie. Her friend in Canada told her that they were planning on having pumpkin pie but couldn't find any pumpkins - so my daughter replied 'We'll eat it for you!' It was very good too.

Camille said...

Thanks for your kind greetings Ann! How fun that your girl made Pumpkin Pie in honour of our Thanksgiving! I made this ~
