The one day we honor as the day Pilgrims gave thanks,
Having gone through many trials during their trip,
And trying to adapt to the new life here,
Not forgetting the Father in all their thanks,
Knowing that without His love they would not be here.
Sharing the event with the Native Americans which joined them,
Giving thanks to the Lord for the successful crops,
It was the autumn of 1621.
Venison, wild turkey, and duck were probably their meats.
It was a feast of several days,
Never forgetting the reason they had survived,


In 1789 George Washington assigned a day of Thanksgiving. And
the date was changed a couple of times, but it finally ended up
being celebrated the fourth Thursday in November. (as of 1941)
It was a day to celebrate the great gathering
of Christians, as well as the local Native Americans, and their trip
and survival in the new country. A time of giving thanks to the Lord
for safe travel, aid in crops, thanks for the fellow people there in a
friendly means of helping them.

Psalm 107: 21

Let them give thanks to the LORD for his
unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.
