Happy Thanksgiving

November 27, 2014

Today, we celebrate Thanksgiving, a day of being thankful for the gifts and blessings we have.  It is a national holiday and a true Holy Day regardless of your religious preference.  We celebrate the day with our families and loved ones.

The Pilgrims set aside a day of Thanksgiving in 1621 by sharing festivities and prayer with their Native American neighbors. George Washington established Thanksgiving Day as a national holiday in 1789 for “grateful and heartfelt acknowledgement of the many favors of Almighty God.”  In 1863 Abraham Lincoln designated the last Thursday in November as a day of national observance for Thanksgiving.  In 1941 it was changed to the fourth Thursday in November.

This day should be accompanied with a solemn recognition of the great blessings we have and share with each other.  We should also say a special prayer for our service men and women who are in harm’s way protecting and defending the liberty and freedom we many times take for granted.  May God continue to bless America!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
