Happy Thanksgiving

 Dr. Johnson, president of Howard University, saying grace before Thanksgiving dinner in 1942.      (Library of Congress)

Each year we gather around the kitchen table for a large traditional dinner.  There is a wonderful variety of good things to eat and we delight in enjoying the happy time with the family.  Here is the day when we think about the year and the blessings we have.  We think about all the ways in which the Lord has guided us and taken care of us.  We are thankful!  

The most beautiful part of this day is when grace is said. This is a precious prayer thanking God for providing for us. We thank Him for the food and we feel a sense of gratefulness. This is the best part of life - being with the family, having food to nourish us, and to feel a sense of closeness with our dear Lord.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, Mrs. White & Family! Thank you for the reminder of the simplicity of this beautiful holiday that sometimes doesn't get all that it deserves. When we begin to remember what Thanksgiving is supposed to be, then maybe we can all come together with our loved ones with an enjoyable peaceful day. May the Lord continue to bless you and your family.
