What Are You Thankful For?
Posted 08 October 2012 - 11:07 AM
I'm thankful simply for many things taken for granted these days, privileges that we enjoy in first world countries that people in other nations can only dream of. Think about it, as first-world citizens (and esp. for those of us who are Vancouverites) we enjoy some of the cleanest water and air in the world, health care, stellar living conditions (albeit slightly overpriced but still), quality choice of food, enough money to afford what we want and likely still have some savings, a safe living environment, a decently stable economy in these tough times and so many freedoms! What more should we really be asking for?
So, what're you thankful for, CDC?
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
Jesus LOVES YOU!
2012, meet Matthew 24:36-47!
14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

The fact we can walk to a grocery store and buy a thanksgiving dinner for under $100 (below average 8 hour income) is truly incredible, and we take things like this for granted everyday.

...even though they drive me nuts.
I hear you,I have 2 lovely daughters that I am most thankful for even though at times it's like living in an insane asylum.

Feminism will be outlawed. Mostly because it's a backwards idiotic viewpoint that doesn't serve any real progressive purpose.

The Real war is not between the east and the west. The real war is between intelligent and stupid people.
That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.

My father, who has always stood steadfastly in my corner.
My brother, who singlehandedly moved a washer/dryer for me this weekend. I'm thankful for him despite this, but I gave extra thanks on Sunday that he's so strong and patient. And that he has a truck!
For this beautiful place I live in - the blue herons, the river, the sunshine and my bike that keeps me close to it all.
For the abundantly fresh produce that I'm surrounded by...on those bikerides I pass the fields of corn, etc. that I feed my family (and I respect my farmer friends by purchasing their produce at the market vs helping myself in their fields).
Long weekends - which we need more of.

My second chance.
McCoy: We were speculating. Is God really out there?
Kirk: Maybe he's not out there, Bones. Maybe he's right here. [points to his heart]
