Fourteen years after the first settlers dedicated America to God on the sands of Cape Henry, Virginia on April 29, 1607, the Pilgrims at Plymouth, Massachusetts celebrated America’s first Thanksgiving in 1621. They wanted to express their thankfulness and their appreciation to their Creator.
Most Americans see Thanksgiving Day as an expression of their faith and of their gratefulness to God for all of the blessings He has bestowed upon them and upon the United States of America.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving, Psalms 100:4 tells us that we need to: “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.” Let us remember this passage as we gather together with family and friends surrounded by an abundance of riches and blessings which God has given to us.
The Staff and I want to thank you for your support and we wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
