Thanksgiving Day

November 28, 2019 | 42 comments

It is Thanksgiving Day in the United States, a special day to celebrate life’s blessings and express gratitude for them.

I’m grateful to God, above all, for every blessing life has to offer. God is the source of all good, and is present without limit to embrace, experience and express fully and abundantly. There are no bounds to God’s goodness and how much of it we can reflect.

I’m grateful for my family, my church and many friends.

I’m also grateful to you, the readers of this blog, which have grown together into an amazing community of active spiritual thinkers around the world who support and build each other up with their inspirations of truth and love.

May you have a blessed day. Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Though not a holiday in the UK, I wish you Evan, your family and all those in the US and worldwide a blessed day. I am grateful for all the helpful comments made each day by the readers of this blog and for the friend who first told me about it a few years ago. May each day be ‘big with blessings’.

  2. I am so grateful to you Evan for sharing your inspiration with us daily. One of my favourite passages written by Mary Baker Eddy is: My. 164:10
    “What is gratitude but a powerful camera obscura, a thing focusing light where love, memory, and all within the human heart is present to manifest light.”

  3. I am grateful Evan for your clear thought and inspiring messages. You are a living witness of the infinitude of MIND.
    Thank you


    I have a new idea for Thanksgiving
    Happy Giving Thanks Day!
    It is a day to establish being happily giving

    Thanksgiving has become turkey, football games,
    Nothing wrong with those activities
    But do we really stop and think about giving thanks,

    much less, happily giving thanks
    Happily giving, love, kindness, helpfulness
    Giving happily, is the same but maybe easier understood
    Giving is un-selfing, self

    Giving is active and when given in love, it happifies
    So I’m wishing you, a Happy Giving Thanks Day…
    every day

    Excuse the way I used the words happy and happily.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving Day Evan to you and your family. I give thanks for your spiritual insights throughout the year. Of which I am so appreciative.

  6. I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving Day! In Switzerland, we have such a day, too, every third Sunday of September. It is called the Federal Day of Thanksgiving, Repentance and Prayer (translated from German), and it is one of my favorite feasts of the year. It is so good to be able to give thanks.
    Wishing all of you God’s blessing for today and every day!

  7. Thank you Evan for this daily blog of goodness. I give thanks to our Father-Mother God for the infinite and abundant blessings to all her children. Happy giving thanks day!

  13. I read recently that we don’t give thanks because we’re happy—we’re happy because we give thanks! And I’m so thankful today and everyday for your Spiritview Blog and what you share with us, and for Divine Love’s blessings each moment.

  14. Grateful to all who contribute regularly to this blog and especially to you, Evan, for enriching our every day with the bountiful blessings you continually share. Thank you all and Happy Thanksgiving!
    Be embraced with Love today!

  15. In Canada, we observe Thanksgiving in October, but happily “share” Thanksgiving with the US too, our countries are so inter-connected through sharing borders and through the news channels, and of course, most of all through our Mother Church. I am most grateful for the Mother Church keeping us all connected with Mary Baker Eddy’s writings and the Bible, for bringing our inspired teachers, practitioners, lecturers, nurses, and chaplains to the field so that all can be blessed in so many ways. As well, the myriad people who work behind the scenes to bring the lessons, publications, etc to all. Also very thankful for Evan and his tireless dedication to his students and for his SpiritView for the world, and of course the commenters for expanding the thought. God bless you all!

  16. I so appreciate the ideas shared each day and love how this blog community supports all the contributors with wonderful insights, healing experiences, articles that uplift and the true fellowship of love. I look forward each day to Evans message and the fruitage that comes from it through the comments each day. I love the individuality of thought which shows Mind’s infinite ideas expressing themselves to others. Giving thanks for this and more. God’s goodness blesses all!

  17. How can one not give thanks when they glimpse, even a little, of Spirit’s view. Thank you Evan, and to the contributors to this blog, for sharing your individual understanding of Spirit’s, Truth’s, Life’s, Soul’s, Mind’s, Principle’s, Love’s view.

  18. I am so grateful that Mrs Eddy discovered this Science and then shared it with the world.
    So grateful to you, Evan, for sharing your knowledge of this sweet, powerful Science..
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  19. I am most grateful to God for all of the blessings bestowed. Thank you Evan and all. May your day be filled with God’s infinite love.

  20. I too am most grateful for Evan, this blog, all the wonderful commenters and the Truth and Love which
    impels it all. I’m grateful to know that Life is Spirit and that we can “…prove the grand verities of Christian Science” MBE

  21. I am deeply grateful to God for all of His Love and bountiful blessings; to Mary Baker Eddy for Christian Science; to Evan for his dedication through these blogs; and to each and everyone for sharing your inspirations. May you all have a day of Thanksgiving overflowing with gratitude, love, and blessings!!!

  24. Hello Evan and all. I am so grateful for this blog. It has taught me alot and helped me in many ways. I am so glad that my sister told me about it. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  25. Many thanks for all the expressions of gratitude on this blog. In Australia it in not celebrated the same way as USA and Canada and many countries but CS Churches hold a service as do
    many others while some people like to observe it in other ways. It does not pass us by.

  26. Thank you Evan for this daily inspirational blog that constantly challenges me and gives me fresh ideas to think about. I am in Australia and we had our Thanksgiving service this week in church and our members gave some very heartfelt thank you testimonies. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and all the people who comment on these amazing blogs! I learn every day from your comments.

  27. I am grateful for your teaching Spirit in a way that is so life enhancing. My life is so much richer because of you and Spiritview. Words cannot express my heartfelt thanks for always being available whenever I feel I cannot handle something on my own. Today was a wonderful day of sharing with family for me, as I am sure it was for you and all who have participated in this blog. Thanks to you all for the wisdom and gratitude you share.

  28. Such a blessing Spiritview is each & every
    I start my day with U, Evan & fellow bloggers
    My gratitude is boundless
