Father God I wonder- Happy Canadian Thanksgiving.

I wonder how long it would actually take me if I sat down and wrote everything I should be grateful for?




From health to safety, knowledge and freedom, family and friends, prosperity and well being.

I could spend days listing the subcategories in each of the fundamental blessings I already mentioned. And many more days listing items in each of the subcategories. But this year, I would like to focus on one specific blessing.

A blessing that I always take for granted. One that shook my heart as I listened to my favourite hymn at church yesterday: being God`s own child.

Here is an excerpt of the hymn:

Father God, I wonder how I managed to exist
Without the knowledge of Your parenthood and Your loving care
But now I am Your child, I am adopted in Your family
And I can never be alone
‘Cause Father God, You’re there beside me

I will sing Your praises

How awesome is this blessing, this grace? I was simply born into this reality:

  • I did not search for it (as millions have throughout the ages).
  • Fleeing from persecution to find salvation was not my lot.
  • I did not suffer unbearable tortures for my faith, as the martyrs did.
  • Practicing my faith in secrecy as millions of Christians still is not my reality.

I was simply handed this inheritance on a golden platter and a wooden Cross.

Truly, I wonder how I could have ever deserved this blessing.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving dear readers.

May we all sing His praises forevermore.

After graduating with a Major in Journalism, Mireille’s career path took an unexpected turn away from her beloved pen and paper. It took an equally unexpected turn of events for Mireille to start writing again.After spending many hours (too many!) watching super hero cartoons with her son, she realized that most Christian children are unaware of their superpowers!She set about creating the SuperHolies: the Fruits of the Holy Spirit re-imagined as superpowers to grab the children’s attention and teach them about their faith and its glory.
