A happy and blessed Thanksgiving day to you and yours...
WHEREAS, It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor;
WHEREAS, Both the houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me "to 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:"
Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted' for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have show kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.
--George Washington - October 3, 1789
Been looking all over but can't find any snow anywhere in sight. Perhaps the fact that it's 80 degrees out has something to do with that.
But still, in spite of all that, we are having a great Thanksgiving and I hope everyone else here that honors the tradition has a great one as well.
No, I had way too much Turkey & "fixens"
The Deer - is for Deer hunting season, and no, I don't hunt, but It's a really great pic - so I made a card out of it
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Had to shovel three inches of snow here myself......Just to get to dinner.
I've got a better chance of seeing it where I live than you did, I guess. It was a frosty 74 degrees here today...brrrrrrrrrr
It was great!
Stuffed to a happy stuffed, no room; but not expanded.
Hmmm... Time for LEFTOVERS!!!
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, and did indeed feel thankful for all your blessings.
I, for one, felt very thankful for (among other things) 85 degree weather and sun as far as the eye can see!!! Today, we'll get a taste of winter - it'll drop all the way to 75...
Thanksgiving...? Wasnt that like a month ago?
oh, hang on.
The American Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving, hope you get bloated on too much Turkey and stuffing (I did)
