GIVING THANKS








This weekend, as we celebrate Thanksgiving in Canada, the words of one of my favorite hymns are very appropriate:






"THANKS TO GOD"

Thanks for roses by the wayside,

Thanks for thorns their stems contain!

Thanks for home and thanks for fireside,

Thanks for hope, that sweet refrain!

Thanks for joy and thanks for sorrow,

Thanks for heavenly peace with Thee!

Thanks for hope in the tomorrow,

Thanks through all eternity!
