Our Anniversary and Thanksgiving
Not only are we celebrating Thanksgiving today, we are also celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary. I am so thankful to God for giving me a godly husband who loves the Lord and his family.
With Thanksgiving becoming more like an opportunity for people to get great deals on their Christmas shopping, I think this helps to remember what Thanksgiving is truly about:
"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; and Whereas both 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."
