My cooking is so bad my kids thought Thanksgiving was to commemorate Pearl Harbor. - Phyllis Diller
Canada recently celebrated Thanksgiving and Americans are about to do the same. So, if we are all giving thanks for our many blessings, WHOM are we thanking? I have a strong belief in God, a Supreme Being, the Giver of all things, the Almighty – I bet you believe in Him too. My belief stems from the observation that this universe, this earth, this body and brain and all of nature are just too marvelous, too amazing and too incomprehensible to have occurred by an accident. So, if God has provided this fantastic life about which we learn and marvel more each day, perhaps billions more amazing discoveries await humankind’s discovery.
We have family, health and life itself to be thankful for. We have food, fun and friendship. The list could go on forever. Most authors, poets, artists and musicians have said it through word, image and music more marvelously than I could ever hope to achieve. I can not match their eloquence. So, I'll stop.
Instead, I invite you to click on the image to the left to watch a four minute video giving thanks for the wonders of nature.
