Thanksgiving Reflection

The following "reflection" is reproduced with the kind permission of Jack Murta...

"REFLECTIONS" is affiliated with the weekly and the National Prayer Breakfast that is held in Canada's Parliament.

parliamentReflection: Thanksgiving 2017 The spiritual author Henri Nouwen wrote, "to be grateful for the good things that happen in our lives is easy, but to be grateful for all of our lives, the good as well as the bad, the moments of joy as well as the moments of sorrow, the successes as well as the failures, the rewards as well as the rejections, that requires hard work. Still, we are only grateful when we can say thank you to all that has brought us to this present moment".

The choice for gratitude rarely comes without some real effort. But each time we make that effort, the next choice is a little easier, a little freer, and a little less self-conscious. There is an Estonian proverb that says: "Who does not thank for little will not thank for much." Acts of gratitude make one grateful because, step by step, they reveal to us that we can reach out to others, we can listen to others and we can begin to really try to understand others. In doing so we become the beneficiaries.

The act of gratitude and thanksgiving is the explicit action to acknowledge all that I have is ultimately given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated. It does not come from within me, it comes from God.

On this Thanksgiving we have much to be thankful for. Just being thankful came home to me on Monday of this week when after watching the stately and meaningful swearing-in of Julie Payette as our 29th Governor General. I then switched the television channel to watch the coverage on CNN of the horrific killing that occurred in Las Vegas. Looking at these two events made it seem for a few moments that we were living in two very different worlds.

As we gather together this Thanksgiving let us include in our prayers our neighbours to the South, and ask God to bring healing to the United States.

My wife Lyn and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Thanksgiving that is full of love, warmth and extra special moments.

Yours,

Jack Murta
