Thanksgiving Remembered...

In September of 1620, 102 travelers left the port of Plymouth, England, bound for the promise of a new beginning in a new world...



Happy Thanksgiving to all!

"recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:" 
 President George Washington's 1789 Congressional Proclamation
  How blessed we are to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave...

May you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!  Let's sing the doxology!

  1. I'm singing it with you. Can you hear me??? So good to be reminded of our history and the way that God's faithfulness sustained those early countrymen. It is so timely considering all our country and her people have been suffering for the past couple of years.
