It is Thanksgiving Day in the United States, a holiday celebrated in many countries around the world at different dates.

Whether you are in a designated Thanksgiving holiday or not, may your day be filled with blessings and reasons to be grateful!

Among other things, I’m grateful for you, for your love and prayers, for your comments during the year on this website, and for the healing work you are doing in your community.

May you have a special day bathed in the blessings of Love and the goodness of God.

I pray you enjoy a Happy Thanksgiving Day!

  1. Dear Evan, your family and everyone celebrating Thanksgiving today I wish you the happiest of days today ( and everyday) ! Gods gifts are truly bounteous for us all. Spirit View is an expression of his care for our continual growth in understanding our Spiritual being. Sending Love to everyone❣️

  2. Thank you so much, Evan for your warm Thanksgiving greeting and blessing for today. Thank you, too, for this Spirit View website and all the inspiration it provides from yourself, and those who contribute. Best wishes to one and all!

  3. I am very grateful today for the spiritview website and and all the inspiration and wonderful blessings it brings every day. I love the spiritual law and promise that Mary Baker Eddy revealed in science & health — Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need

  4. I am grateful to know ‘Our Father-Mother God’.
    I am so blessed to know God is good; that God is Spirit and that the universe is like Him/Her.
    No matter what, nothing changes or can come between God and all creation, forever.
    Thank you for this format to offer gratitude to God.

  5. I email regularly with a friend in Australia. Recently she said she was feeling down about things at the moment. She is not CS so the thought came to me to say that some people have found it helpful to make a gratitude list. She said she had not heard of that idea before but she thought it was a lovely idea and would start one. Every day can be a day for giving thanks. Have a good thanks giving day!

  6. Evan, I am grateful for you and your message on this forum. I am lifted up by the inspiration of Mary Baker Eddy’s followers in the comments section. We all have so much to be grateful for and can begin to see what a wondrous thing life really is when we keep gratitude on the front burner ~

  17. Our true wealth is demonstrated in our sharing of ourselves in the spirit of thanksgiving for all that we receive with all that we meet. I am wealthy beyond measure and grateful for this metaphysical sharing. More real than a turkey with all of its dressings.

  18. Wishing you Evan Cathy and family a very happy Thanksgiving. Likewise to the Spirit View community.

  19. Every morning I look forward to reading your blog Evan and then reading all the supportive comments and links that are shared. I am so grateful for Christian Science and Mary Baker Eddy who showed us that God heals all. Have a lovely Thanksgiving “feast of Love” !

  20. Please include me in gratitude for this continued sharing. It’s Thanksgiving! More felt and expressed today, a wonderful feeling of togtherness.
    My first healing was on the Friday after Thanksgiving in 1946. I was a two year old todder.
    My father, a second generation Christian Scientist took my mother and siblings out to get ice cream.
    I was riding in the back seat next to the door. The door opened backwards to most other cars..
    It cam open and I fell out of the car while it was traveling forth miles per hour as I am told.
    An older brother ran back and picked me up. It was a rural place in the country, far from any hospital.
    They took me home, unconscious and laid me on the living room couch. They called a Christian Science Practitioner. Her name was Mrs. Nank.
    When I finally woke up I didn’t recognize anyone, before long I was about playing as well as ever.
    My father gave this testimony every Thanksgiving. I have continued to do so after his passing.
    I’m grateful for the progress of this great cause.
    I know this is the beginning of a wonderful and blessed day for everyone.
    Thank you for your blessing so beautifully said, Evan.
    Thank you to all my SpiritView family! Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. What a beautiful testimony. I love that your Father gave that testimony every Thanksgiving, and that you continued that tradition. Reminds me of how we read and reread the healings in the Bible, receiving new insights, inspiration, hope and conviction of what Truth is, what reality is. Thank you.

    2. Thank you David for sharing your heart warming testimony. What greater gratitude can there be than giving thanks to God for his help and healing. Bless you and your father for continuing thanks to God for this wonderful healing. I’m so grateful you shared it with us. (=

  21. I am most grateful for your inspiration and unfoldments Evan bless my life in many ways. Gratitude and Thanksgivings are yours today!

  22. Dear Evan and this wonderful community. Thank you for your deeply kind and loving support as I struggled through having to be tested and turning up positive for the virus. Your loving responses touched my heart and contributed greatly to my healing. I was able to let go of the anger I felt towards those who forced me to be tested. The symptoms of disease were mild and quickly faded. I am grateful for you and so touched by your love.

    1. What gratitude for the healing Casey, I am blessed to read of the healing which took place. On the lighter side, I read someone’s comments that by adding the letter N to COVID-19, the picture becomes clearer, calling it by it’s real name, the CON VID-19, something trying to convince us that it’s real when it’s NOT real, it’s a CON, trying to confuse us. Breaks the mesmerism when adding N to the name, GOD cannot be confused and HE heals us when by knowing that HE is the creator, not confusion nor any other ‘CON’.

      Blessings to you for not going there, but by your healing proving that you can not be conned.

  23. Spiritview keeps our thinking current and
    rouses us daily to our. Divine heritage . Very

It was only this year that I found SpiritView and at first I didn’t think I “knew enough” to share or comment, but thoughts began to flow and I felt the warmth and welcome from all you and began to comment after a short while. This couldn’t have come at a better time, when people everywhere are seeing the need to go deeper and draw closer to God. Thank you.
