Thanksgiving! My favorite holiday.
A truly American Holiday.
It was George Washington who recommended,… to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness. Washington continued, …to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation…
Today let us remember, and not take for granted, what God has blessed us with. Let us not allow hate to blot out light! President Washington understood the imperfections of man, yet, also understood were all blessings come from, and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions.
George Washington, our first President, proclaimed a day of thanksgiving. We too can proclaim with a thankful heart today and everyday.
Wishing You Blessed and HAPPY THANKSGIVING
