Who are you thanking this Thanksgiving?

People often talk about the things they are thankful for.  Most of us have plenty for which we can give thanks.

But to whom are you giving thanks?   Who gave you all these wonderful things for which you are thankful?

God?  Mother Nature? Gaia?  Fate?

Just curious.


Update:  I should answer my own question, shouldn't I?   You won't be surprised to read that I thank our sovereign God for all the great gifts in my life - including those that may not always look like gifts.

Update 2:  If you can't answer the question "to whom are you giving thanks" but you feel thankful today anyway... maybe you need to spend some time thinking about that.

I thank God. Quite simple really.

I'm thankful for many things but I attribute it to God and the many gifts he's given me.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

And, be forewarned that my post on getting something done is not what it seems. The plaque in the school actually says just the opposite. I consider it to be contributing to a hostile environment for boys, another good reason to home school.

DAD - Happy Thanksgiving to you too, and your kids.

I wondered about that when I read it earlier... and didn't comment because I needed to ponder. It is amazing to me that such a thing could be up in a school.

God. Even on the days when faith is a seed.

We than God for everything. Thanksgiving Day doesn't change anything but the menu. ;)
