On the first Thanksgiving, the Pilgrims thanked the Almighty for the food and circumstances that provided for their survival. President Lincoln declared in 1863 that Thanksgiving would be a national celebration, a time set aside to acknowledge the “blessing of fruitful fields and the source from which they come.” (source) I have so many blessings to be thankful for, but most importantly I desire to acknowledge the Source of my blessings!
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights. – James 1:17
I’ve been playing this song on repeat all week long. I hope you can say, “I am so blessed, my soul has found rest. Oh Lord, I give You thanks!” Happy Thanksgiving!
