We remain ‘One Nation Under God’ [UPDATED]Published 8:53am Wednesday, November 21, 2012 Updated 7:31am Thursday, November 29, 2012
We in America live in a land where we can celebrate life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
These are unalienable rights which have been granted to us by God, of to whom we give thanks. God has given them to us, whereas let no man take them away from us.
Peoples from many foreign lands have risked their lives to escape the tribulations of their lands, travel to America to enjoy our freedoms, and thus call America their new homeland.
We are truly a nation which has been blessed by God. He continues to grant us the gifts which help to supply our everyday needs and comforts.
He has also given us the greatest gift of all, His Son, Jesus Christ.
The first Thanksgiving celebration in this country can be traced back to the year of 1621 in Plymouth, which was prompted by a good autumn harvest of crops.
On Thursday, Nov. 22, we as a United States of America continue to celebrate the national holiday of Thanksgiving Day.
As children of God, let us observe the day and thank Him for the abundance which He has granted to us as individuals, as families and as a great nation.
Let this also be a day to share our time, talents and His joy with those around us who have been less fortunate this past year due to life’s hardships and struggles.
In everything he has given us, let us give thanks to God.
Happy Thanksgiving to you.
