Thanks Jays for the memories!

Thank you Toronto Blue Jays for the memories of the 2015 season. It was close. But in the end we were denied the Big Game of the World Series. I remember the 1992 and 1993 World Series. I was in a friend's home for the 1992 series, and I was out with friends for the 1993 series. To make it so close and then not go is sad for sure. But they gave it a good run. This does mean promising things for next year as they have had the taste only to lose it and so will want it so desperately next year... hopefully.

In any event, it was fun. It stirred my interest in baseball that hasn't been there for a long time. Thanks to my home town boys, the Toronto Blue Jays! 2015 American League East Champions! All the best for next year guys!

There's still the Argos! 

We won't talk about the Leafs right now...

Is there a Feast mentioned in the bible specifically about Thanksgiving? Well, there was the Festival of Harvest in Exodus 23:16(NIV) 16 “Celebrate the Festival of Harvest with the firstfruits of the crops you sow in your field. “Celebrate the Festival of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in your crops from the field. Certainly sounds like our modern Thanksgiving doesn't it? Then there's Psalm 100:4(NIV)4  Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. So we're to give thanks always for what God has given us, and especially for things like the harvest. So for anyone who says to celebrate Thanksgiving, there's no command to do so in the Bible? That's not true.

For my family and myself we get together to celebrate the day, we haven't seen each other in a while and so it is a great opportunity to catch up, give thanks to God, and of course, have turkey and stuffing! 

Happy Thanksgiving!
