Thankful for receiving - A month of Thanksgiving

Today I am thankful that I heard John Arnott speak, he prayed for me.  

Today I am thankful for what John spoke with a remarkable gentle authority on -  the power of forgiveness.  He explained that to truly receive our freedom we need to forgive not only those who have hurt us, but ourselves, and we need to forgive God.  It was a very powerful evening.  Forgiveness is a powerful issue.  

Today I am thankful that I have within me the power to forgive, not only others, but myself and God.

Bonus thankful - today I am thankful that this year I chose to forgive myself.

Have you ever forgiven anyone? 

That's it for now ...

BBC please sort your mess out and go back to creating awesome programming.

Today I am thankful for those who gave their lives in world war one and two, and in every war/conflict since so we may live without tyranny or dictatorship

For The Fallen
With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.

Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres,
There is music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England's foam.

But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the Night;

As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.

That's it for now ...
