Thanksgiving

Thanksgivin' holidays are here again. They're a nice likkle nudge to remind us to thank God for his mercies unto us. After seein' de way a J'can political 'supporter' injured a J'can TV reporter (in his eye, no less, callin' de reporter a "Labourite"), am acknowledgin' that mi country still has a far way to go, but am still thankful for God's grace to us -- to all de world, as a serious comedian put it: "God bless the world." May this holiday find you happy thru bein' thankful to God. God bless Jamaica, de Caribbean. God bless Africa. God bless America (North & South) -- "God bless the world." Thank you, God, for all your blessings to us, an' above all, thank God for Jesus!

Lord, let me not assess de 'fairness' of de world by lookin' for greater sorrow in others than in myself -- rather, let me see 'fairness' in peace and love. Let me observe evil and hate as unfair, an' bein' moved by God's holy spirit, let me always oppose those.
