Happy Thanksgiving

Village Squire Entertaining The New Minister - Edward Lamson Henry


The turkey is slow roasting, the smell spreading through the house.  Everyone is still snug in bed, savoring the chance to sleep in.

I have been thinking about the Pilgrims, who risked everything to come to a new world in order to have the freedom to worship the Lord differently than the way the official church was worshiping. I wonder if I would have that kind of courage.

We will be feasting today, and giving thanks for the abundant blessings we have been given,

Salvation 
God's Word
Freedom
Family
Our home
Two vehicles
3 horses
2 dogs
1 cat
Clothes
Comfy beds
Warm blankets
Shoes - more than one pair
Food
Friends

The list of course could go on and on...

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
